Bullies are Mean

Why? I mean why are girls so mean to each other? Why is it that when someone isn't just like the rest of the group, they are prime target for bullying? It isn't fair! I know it's easy to tease but when teasing goes too far and it becomes hurtful, why not stop? Why does it please the bully to hurt more? What kind of gratification do they receive from being so hateful? My husband said it's because bullies are weak. I can see the sense in this. So does that mean all bullies have experienced abuse at one time or another in their life and feel the need to have power over someone else? I sure hope not! I honestly think that it's deeper than that. So how does one deal with when your own child doesn't want to go to school anymore. My daughter is highly intelligent because she reads so much which creates attention as she's labeled a 'nerd'. Breaks my heart! You're doomed if you do, and doomed if you don't! I keep telling her to reply: Bill Gates is a nerd and look at him now. I'll take the millions Thank You! But all she says to that is MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!
