What in the World??

So, I am going to  get on my soapbox here.  Have anyone noticed that there is a a lot of talk about bullying lately in the news?  It is so sad that these kids have to make other kids feel inferior to them.  I don’t care what you call it picking on them, just playing that got out of control, or bullying, your kids should not be doing it!!  And they should be punished if they are caught doing it.  I just saw a news story where a 5 yr old got tied up to a pole with a rope, duct taped his mouth shut, and cut his clothes, by an 11 year old.  The mother wanted to file a police report, but was told that they couldn’t file charges on kids this young.  Didn’t a 9 yr old murder someone in Colorado not to long ago?  They filed charges on him…I don’t want this happening to anyone in my family especially my daughter, and I plan to talk to her extensively about it, and continue talking about it.  This is an issue that will never go away, if she doesn’t know how to handle it.  I am very saddened by this and I am scared that my child will have to face it someday.
