When I was being bullied in first grade, my parents pushed me...I mean, REALLY pushed me...to go and punch the bully in the nose. Which I eventually did. 100% effective.
Today my parents would probably be dragged away to Leavenworth.
My Mom insisted I do that at the bus stop when I was in kindergarten.
I learned that day how bullies work and why they fail.
Thanks for bringing back that memory. I hadn’t thought of that day for years.
