Working with kids and raising two I sometimes see efforts by one or another to sort of overwhelm or even hurt others. It's called "bullying" now. Well when I was in grade school it was just "fighting" or "starting trouble." Sometimes it seems to be competition taken too far. I'm a coach and when it gets to a certain (sometimes hard to detirmine) point I'll step in and explain limits. But other times it looks pretty good or just normal. Those times it is not targetting the opponent as anything lesser than the one being a bit agressive. I'm fine with that as long as it is not personal, and that is the "limit" I draw. I think most people can remember being "bullyed" as a child. The first time it happened to me it was about being "just a girl." Then it was my name (Jordan is an unusual name in the area I grew up, and was quickly faded to "Jerry" as I got to about the 4th grade, so I just let it be called that and some old friends still do call me that, it started out as a rouse but ended up a name so what? ). But the trully hurtful actions have to be stopped and the "bully" has to be gently turned around. Hard to do in some cases as even parents will defend and enable it when it is brought up. Any experiences?
