My son is in third grade, which means he's had three solid years of school curriculum about bullying. Don't get me wrong, I think making sure kids learn about kindness is great. But after spending some time in various online parenting communities, I can't help but think it might be the moms that need the anti-bully training more than their kids.

From stay-at-home versus working mom battles, to mean girl comments about post-baby bodies, and the never-ending fights about vaccines, breastfeeding, and whether or not letting your baby cry it out makes you a monster, there is no doubt that moms can be brutal to other moms.

I spoke with some moms who survived their nasty encounters with mean moms and was surprised at both how cruel some women can be -- and at some of the lessons learned from the experience of being a bully's victim.
