Bullying happens a lot more than we think, and it even happens to adults a lot more than people realize.

Those who need to learn this are EXACTLY the same ones who will never read it.

Good letter & there may be no more better a rule to live by, it's a universal aspect to all major religions and to common sense. Somehow this rule should be heavily communicated & reinforced in schools, it could have quite an impact.

Sorry Carolyn, because of the liberal fools in USA it is against the law to teach the truth. (rubbish only, is now allowed)

Budzilla....I think YOU are exactly the person who needs to read it! You commented in the special needs post (the one about the Fletcher school children if your memory needs refreshed) calling them "defective". Is that not bulling? Yet you come on here and state that those who need to read it will never do so. Pot meet kettle.

how can school officials not recognize most of those bullying problems? How can parents not---------

sorry see dog, I forgot that the term "school officials" is close to your financial heart. Let's blame parents only.

So sometimes bullying is understandable?

Actually see dog, bullying was not as serious a problem in my early school days, or at least it didn't appear to be. The isolated cases I was aware of, were handled in a swift and just manner.

MTinNY: My correct use of the term defective and you getting your panties in a bunch over it is not bullying.

I suggest you now and read and attempt to comprehend the correct meaning of "bullying".

Budzilla...I'll play your game. While your term "defective offspring" may be correct (though not politically correct), it is highly offensive, especially while doing so in a letter to the editor about special needs children. Of the 20 or so people that I have talked to in the past few days there hasn't been one person who hasn't agreed with me. A better term for you online would be a troll, though I suspect that IRL you may be bully.

Your disagreement with facts does not change them, nor do the opinions of the people you have spoken to.
