Daycare Bullies

I don’t know if it’s fair to call a three-year-old a bully, but you can certainly say he’s on the right path. As I say in this week’s Dustinland comic, it’s hard teaching your kids to stick up for themselves. A lot of it seems to be within them, at least at an early age. My kid is sort of nice and sensitive, just like I was. I’m trying to toughen him up a little, but it doesn’t seem to be working. He’s just a nice guy who doesn’t like to get physical in a violent way. Except with me, I guess. He has no problem punching me in the nuts or kicking me in the face. Happens quite often, and usually unprovoked. Maybe that’s the answer. “Just pretend the mean boy is daddy.”

  2. Getting bullied is something that can stick in your craw the rest of your life.

    Not long ago there was a case where a guy in his 70s walked up to a former high-school classmate and shot him dead, just like that. When they asked him why, he said the guy had given him a wedgie or some such thing in high school, and for 60 years, it just ate away at him seeing the guy live out a happy life. He told himself that now that they both were old, the window of revenge was narrowing, so…bang bang.
