I remember kids getting bullied all through school.  I was bullied in jr. high by an older girl who looked like she was in her 20's.  There were days I was scared to death to go to school.  Unfortunately, I don't think there's any way to stop it.  Not until the parents of the bullies start doing something about it.  I have a feeling most of them are/were bullies too.  My parents told me the only way to stop a bully was to stand up to them.  I find that still to be true with adult bullies I come across in my career.  Most bullies, when you stand up to them, back off.  It can be an extremely difficult thing to do, and it doesn't always have the best consequences.  Click on the link below, and tell me what you think.  The small kid is the bully, he was expelled for 21 days.  The other boy, was suspended for 4 days, because he was also violent.  What do you think about the situation, bullies, and the punishment?
