Its a title that no one wants but will earn at some stage in their lives. Okay that may be an exaggeration but so kids through assertiveness or clever words or just playground antics will be labeled a bully at some stage. It might be from their peers,but most likely it will be from the parent who wasn't there or didn't see and is only getting one side of the story. All schools will have a degree of bullying physical or verbal. I would never trust a principal who said "We don't have bullying at our school!" There have been a few who have used this line. Before you, the concerned parent,label a child on hearsay, or put the word out in the community take time to reflect on your own actions. What does that action make you!
