Sometimes all you have to do is teach your child the way to deal with a bully. If it is verbal abuse and taunting; sometims all it takes is agreeing with them. Do not give them any ammunition. Take the power away from the other child. My chidren have done this and it works every time. How can they continue to ridicule if you agree with them. The child knows it is not true and in a way the bullied are actually making fun of the bully. They might say you know your right my shirt is pretty ugly or you know your right you are a good soccer player. It is all in how you spin it!

I didn't realize when I posted this that it would get so much attention. I'm a parent who is just so frustrated with how things are handled. We did go to the principle and was told that "oh that boy would never do that " everyday on the bus is awful and confronting the bully makes my child get picked on even more. The parents think that their child is cool and speaking to them is a joke.

How is the bully confronted? Talking to him? Asking him to stop? Making threats to "tell" on him? A bully considers those types of confronting a weakness and they laugh or get worst. A hard punch in the jaw, several hard slaps to the face, Pulling out a fist full of hair with a twist, and kicking them in the groin is more of what they understand. I believe your method of confronting is not one that is working,, why not try another and see. IF THE CONFRONTATION gets you in trouble, so be it,, you will have stopped the bully and that is what you want in the long run isn't it.? How can any one just live their life by being intimidated by others who are in the wrong? I have a hard time figuring that out.

When it comes to being pushed around, I tell my kids, as long as they don't start it I will support them 110% if they stand up for themselves and finish it. Stand up to a bully and I guarantee they will back down. They only prey on the timid and weak, it makes them feel so much bigger and stronger. More parents need to monitor their kids and teach them that bullying is wrong, I know its not tolerated in my house. The problem is the parent that believe their precious ones would never do that. Seriously, come on, I never put anything past my kids, because they are just that, kids and they get caught up in the moment and don't always use their heads!

years ago we had a bully in our class. he was well known for throwing his weight and his big mouth around. one day, on the playground, he started in on me, again. i had enough, so i decked him, to the cheers of the other kids. teacher saw what i did and hauled my 4th grade ass into her classroom immediately and privately.

she said "OFF THE RECORD, he had it coming. ON THE RECORD, if i see you or anyone else do that again there will be punishment imposed. do you understand? now go apologize to him." (what???)

so i did what i was told. to everyone's surprise he apologized to me and most of his other 'targets' and we all became friends shortly after that.

i'll never forget her words. great lesson for all of us.

nowadays, with all this politically correct feel good crapola, i would probably be arrested for assault.

If there is no monitor - how do you expect the bus driver to drive a busload of kids safely and yet keep his/her attention on a few that are causing trouble?
always provide a monitor that ACTUALLY will intercept a bullying situation and to the bus driver, pull over to road side and address the students teasing another student*!! Hint..look for the Alfa male or female on your bus.tell them you will not tolerate distraction on the bus.its a safety issue.please get control of these bullies!!
