As I mentioned in this earlier post 'Messages to Bullies - Forgiven not Forgotten", on 14 March I sent out interviews to a number of adults who offered to share their stories of being bullied as children. Having still not had the time to compile their responses into a coherent article, I keep wanting to publish parts of their stories because it seems the right time for their voices to be heard.

Bystanders, Bullying and Breaking Points

A video shared online this week shows a very distressing scene of a smaller Year 7 boy hitting a larger Year 10 boy in the face and body while several students stand by (including the camera person) - watching and making comments. The video footage culminates in the smaller boy being injured. A part of this video was shown to me by crew at The Morning Show on Channel 7 yesterday morning - a pure coincidence, as I was about to talk about approaches parents can take if they find out that their child is a bully Read full article

Messages to Bullies - Forgiven not Forgotten

<a href="/blogs/yvettevignando/2011/03/14/messages-to-bullies-forgiven-not-forgotten">Messages to Bullies - Forgiven not Forgotten</a>

I’m writing a feature article about the effects of bullying. To prepare for the article I asked several adults about what they’d say now to the people that mercilessly and sometimes violently bullied them in childhood. Perhaps unsurprisingly, most of them said they had nothing they’d want to say. But their reactions to this question are still important and poignant reminders about why schools and parents need to keep talking about how to reduce the incidence of bullying. Read full article

My Child is Being Bullied - He's Four - My Heart Hurts

My Bear is 4-1/2 years old, and he is a sweet, bookish child who makes a point of sharing and complimenting and thanking. Every time he is given something – a lollipop at the doctor or a piece of candy at swimming lessons or a toy – he insists on getting something for his little sister, too. And for 2 years now, he has been the target for aggressive kids. I hate labeling it “bullying.” Whenever I do refer to what happens to him as bullying, the whole thing seems so harsh, so huge … my heart hurts too much. Because he’s 4-1/2 years old.
