Bully Boys and Bully Girls.

Filed under: Boys / Youth / Education,General,Law & Courts — Downunder @ 11:46 pm Sun 23rd April 2006

There is bullying in schools now, there was when we I was a child too, that hasn’t changed. What I have learnt in life though, is that there are bully’s in the workplace, in business, in government departments, in politics, and even in the justice system. If I have seen a fundamental change in the last 30 years, it is that the bully used to lose, but now the bully wins.

It is not the bully that has changed it is us!


  1. Bullies in both boys and girls are those children that are being bullied at home or by older siblings – they are very lonely and take their frustration out on those who are easy to target- generally younger than themsleves, or they have been teased because they have been the target of the teaching professionals, especially if they are educationally challenged. Watch TV3 Monday night Campbell live and listen to Tom West from Washington DC, you might be surprised on the information that you hear – bullies are troubled children.

  2. Maybe these troubled bullies are recruited as family court judges when they grow up, as what else could explain their callous behaviour?

  3. Moira,
    You just might be right but I hope it is not that simple because that will give CYFS another easy way to take children.
