    Lightbulb My Child - the Bully

    **THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE RECENT RULES CHANGES ON BUBHUB**

    As a parents we are bombarded with how to protect our children from bullying and harrasement

    And I wonder - does this create a victim mentality? Does this create victim blaming?

    My DD over reacted to being harrassed by one child who has niggled at her from kinder through to Grade 1, and we tried many things to combat this clash of personalities. Finally one day my DD had enough, tackled the child to the ground, hit her a few times and finished it off with a kick - not acceptable I know and agree but this has long been dealt with. In dealing with this we discovered that my DD had also become a bit of a school yard terrorist and that was stopped as well

    After reading and some research I realise that we concentrate so much on teaching our kids how to avoid harrassement and so very little on teaching them to NOT be the perpetrator.

    Should schools/parents etc put as much effort into teaching and guiding children on both sides of this ugly side of human nature?

    I think they should focus on all aspects of Bullying.

    BTW, there are new BH rules? What are they?!

    I do think they should. I believe a lot of kids don't realize that they are bullying. And as you said op, I think it's very focused on the victim and not the perpetrator.
