I've also had to watch my little brother go through a lot of bullying which has been tough because he's had it a lot worse than I did. My bullying never got physical whereas my little brother has come home more times than I can count with bruises and cuts on him.
What was the school's response? One of the two:
- He started it - My brother is slightly shorter than me and I'm average. The boys who have bullied him (I've seen them) are usually overweight and taller than him). My brother is intelligent, trust me, his grades are a lot better than mine and he works a lot harder. I know he wouldn't start a fight with someone who could easily squish him by sitting on him.
- They were just playing - This really pisses me off. If someone is ending up with cuts and bruises on them, it's not playing. If they come home crying, it's not playing.
I was interested when I saw a documentary from the BBC called The Anti-Social Network.
