Did you ever have an experience with a bully while you were in school?
Did you experience name calling or physical abuse from another student or witness another student be bullied?
Do you know if there was a reason for the bullying? Was anything done by the teachers or other students?
Yes. And it hurt at the time sometimes physically and sometimes emotionally but it did not give me an excuse to lose my mind and want to kill whoever did it. I was punched many times and on many occasions by an older boy.. I knew the family well.He was the brother of my best friend. He did it when she was not around and then he would deny it. I was never pulverized but I had a few big knots on my arm. He was a bully and remained so throughout high school but he found someone else to be a victim. It did not work with me. I never let him see me cry and never let him know I was afraid. I don't know how I was able to muster up all of this courage because I was ten at the time. After my tenth year, I was no longer interesting as someone to punch.
I was also called names as my last name was not a common name in the tiny town I was living in so jokes were often made about it, silly poems made up to rhyme with it. I guess I didnt' react enough as it quit after a while. I partiuclarly remember it happening the year I was in sixth grade.
It did not happen at school so that was not an issue. I never told so that was on me. Someone who is a bully has a need to make someone else feel powerless, I beleive. They certainly have some unmet need in their lives and perhaps they witnessed it by someone in their immediate or extended family. That may not be the case though. I think (my opinion) that some people are just born with the mean gene and it has NOTHING to do with how they are raised. I could be wrong. I have been wrong once before.

Have you ever had a wild animal just come right up to you and what did you do when it did?It doesn't have to be a big bad ferocious animal. It could be a raccoon, squirrel, deer, even a bird. It's funny because after working at a dude ranch and seeing the extraordinary range of reactions to...

Does it ever bother you when you treat your children better then you were ever treated?I don't begrudge how I treat my boys but as I care for them I sometimes find myself envying them. Is that strange, why or why not?
