What Happens in The Schoolyard...

Bullying has been weighing heavily on my mind with the recent publicity it has received.  It’s not something I’ve ever had to walk through with the children I’ve looked after, and my own kiddies are still too young.  (Has anybody come up with a magic spell to keep them babies forever, by the way?)

What I do remember all too well, however, is being in 4th grade and the parents and teachers all rubbing their hands together, so pleased with themselves for having ‘resolved’ the issue with a stern talking-to and an apology note, and meanwhile the recess and school bus challenges continued.

I’m interested to know how some of you seasoned mamas have tackled this issue.  Have you discussed it ahead of time with your kids?  What are their thoughts on bullying?  How have you worked to resolve issues for a ‘bullied’ kid?  Did it work?
