Bullying …

Markus from Green Bay

I just read the following article:

www.stuff.co.nz...

When I finished primary schooling there were two choices for secondary school, both equally distant. My parents chose one for me, but all the other kids from my school went to the other.

When school started two things became quickly obvious:

• everyone else had come in groups of three to six kids from their primary class
and
• we had three bullies in the class

The individual groups quickly closed ranks, and the bullies zoomed in on the lone target - me.

Now I hated the bullies - but I ABSOLUTELY DESPISED those just standing by and being relieved that it was someone else getting the abuse.

Which is why I NEVER have and NEVER will just stand by when someone is attacked.

The important lesson:

Bullying isn't the problem of the victim.

It isn't the problem of the bullies either.

It is a FAILURE of the class, school, and parents, of every single person lacking the moral courage to stand up against what is wrong.

People who rather go along with the attacks than stand up against them and risk becoming a target as well.

If you ever wondered how the Nazis could take over Germany - THAT is the very reason.

So my question to every parent: what have you taught your kids about bullying?
