Hi all Today I saw a kid being bullied by some older kids.. The kid was almost crying, it was so horrible to see, I can't even imagine what they must have said to them.. Well I hate bullies, so I rounded up my friends to go up to the group off kids.. The funny part is that they were already gone before we even got there, cowards, they can handle one kid but are afraid to defend themselves.. Have you ever been bullied ? Or perhapss bullied someone ? Thx

I have been bullied when I was younger. It was my guy classmate who's smaller than me who's always picking on me but one day, I lose my patience with him. I gave him a hard punch on his face infront of the public. He didn't say anything after that. I told him that he has to collect his garbage on the streets, he's a scavenger.

At school I was always the smallest and thinnest kid in class hence I was always targeted by bullies. However I learned that by always standing up to them even if you get the beating of your life not before long they don't bother with u anymore. U see they are cowards who feed of the fear of the so-called weaker ones.

I used to suffer a little from bullying whilst at school and it made my life that little bit difficult! It was the general stuff like having pencils thrown at me from behind in class. I wouldn't say that my life was made absolute hell though because it wasn't. I hear on the news nowadays that bullying has got that much worse and kids are suffering horrendously. I'm just glad that my school days are finally over. Andrew

Maybe you overact at those children. yes, it's not good to bully others. Child express them genuine and direct,sometimes adult hide their true idea and cheat others by means, that's more horrible.

I was taught that you must not allow yourself be in difficulty, when I was a kid. So far, I have not been bullied by any one. No matter animals or human kind, the case that the stronger teases the weaker is very normal. But many kinds of creature have lived for millions of years. There must be some reason to this. I think we can learn from this personally, besides the social protection.

Hello NrgDfeZ I am so lucky. I haven't been bullied and I didn't bully someone. It is horrible to see that scene, I never see one, but I can imagine how bad it is. My cousin has been bullied when he was 11, his parents didn't trust him at the first time, but finally his parents found out he didn't lie to them, they told it to his school teachers and the problem solved. I don't know if it affected my cousin, but my cousin are a bit diffident.

I've never been bullied, neither from my parents nor from other bad kids when I was young. I'd like to get along with those easy-going guys who weren't born with a violent temper. While, on occasion, I also see some kids being bullied by some older kids. When I see it, I feel like I am being bullied rather than the kid. I just want to rush in to help the poor kid, but ususally, I try to control myself because I'm a girl and I won't be able to defeat them.

When I was a child, I was often bullied by other children. Although I was not weak. Actually I was even taller than them, but somewhat I didn't want to hurt anybody. Perhaps this is why I would be bullied. I love China

Hi, I was never a persecutor of being a bully. But, I have been a victim of a bully. It is not a wonderful experience. I got bullied a lot when I was in middle school and high school. The people that were mostly bullies wer girls. They hated me for no reason. I never have done anything to them. They hated me with a passion. I never bothered them nor talked to them.. Let alone, looked at them.. They just did not like me.. I even had one girl in my class that wanted to fight me, for no reason. I never have done nothing to her. She just wanted to beat me up.. I was even bullied by a girl in high school. She did not want to be around me, and had tried to get others to hate me. She made my life a living hell in class. She picked on me. She used to say in gym that I was acting too pretty and she had others in the class against me.. I went through a lot.. I was even bullied in Elementary school too. I had a cousin that would fight for me.. I went through so much as a female. It was very hard for me. It seemed like when I moved from Pocalla, that is when all hell broke loose.. I had so many enemies at my doorstep until it wasn't funny.. And the craziest thing about it is, I never really see the people that bullied me anymore.. All of them have went their seperate ways.. I did not show up to my high school reunion either. And I don't really plan to ever..

Hey there! Yes, I have been bullied before. Way back in high school. Actually he was a friend of mine. He always punch me in the biceps. Well, I already got used to it, but sometimes you know you get caught off guard and it hurts. Now, he can never do that to me anymore. I've grown a lot more bigger than him. He's only at my sholder length and I punch like a heavy weight boxer.lol so he better not mess with me or else I'll send him to dream land. wahahaha. Have a nice day. Happy posting!!!

Nrg- Bullies work in groups, it's how they get their "power", because as you've seen bullies are really just cowards. The sad thing is they don't go away as adults. I've a bully in my life and they are nefarious. The best thing you can do is stand up to the bully and tell them you are not going to put up with their treatment. And I don't mean fight them. Most bullies can be dealt with simply with words. Though, as you are young I'd also say you should tell a teacher or parent what is going on. It's our job as parents to discipline our children and to teach them how to live right. Hopefully the parents of this bully are willing to admit their son or daughter is picking on someone and will talk with them about why this is so wrong. It is nice though that you were willing to stand up for another who couldn't defend themeselves. That is to be commended. Namaste-Anora

I remember when I was in primary school, grade 1 or 2, I sit in the opposite of a fat girl, she always try to push the desk to my side and made me a very little space. I didn't know why she liked to do that so I thought she was just one of those bullies that most of the class has.

I was bullied all through school. On the bus or in the hall it didnt matter. Once someone broke into my locker and put my coat in the trash and peed on it. I could still cry thinking about it. I was picked on and even beat up. The school did nothing about it. Its sad that kids have to deal with it. Its hard enough growing up without that crap.

hats off to you and your freiends, more people need to help to stand up to bullies for those who are weaker and can't. i used to be bullied all through school up to like 7 grade, i finally decide with a help of some friends to stand up for myself. once i started to stand i came to see they aren't all that. i even got a chance to get paid back on one person who used to bullie me in 6th grade in high school. when he saw how much bigger ive gotten, way bigger then him. he got scared once i told him i learned to fight and love to fight and hurt people. but i took up for lot of kids when i was in school, been in plenty of fights for either taking for myself or others. but i got lot of respect for you and your friends for standing up for the boy. bullies are so mean and hateful.

Hi, I was bullied by my fellows classmates during in my primary school's days. I hated that bullying. They bullied me almost every day because my body was so small and I was not strong. I remembered that I often prayed so that they would have car accidents. After growing up, I learned how to defend myself and how to face the bullying. Fortunatelly, from my secondary school age onwards, I was not encountering bullying. I hope every parents in the world would advise their child not to bully their friends.

Bullies are cowards simple truth. Rounding friends up to frighten bullies only makes you as bad though really, depending on their age its best to report their behaviour to an appropriate adult and just make sure the bullied child got home safe and his parents were made aware of how badly he had been treated.
