Family Matters: What’s up with bullying?
We’ve all experienced intentional meanness that makes us feel bad and uncomfortable. In today’s world, it’s called bullying. Bullies hit, kick, push, trip, call nasty names and spread nasty rumors. A menacing look, a certain hand gesture, a flip of the head count too. It’s not a new problem. And it’s not just kids who do it. Adults do it too. You heard the recent and shameful news story of the employees who frequently tazed a co-worker and as he screamed for help they laughed and watched him wet and dirty his pants. Bullying is not confined to schools. It happens at work, in churches, homes, parks and any place where people gather.
