Lots of moms around here bear witness to this troubling trend, so if your child is experiencing this, you are not alone...
says, "I've dealt with bullying on the bus with all 3 of my children. I went
to the principal & when it was not taken care of in the proper
manner I decided to just drive my kids to & from school everyday. I
also got a p/t job as a Noon Duty at their school as well as
volunteering in all 3 of their classrooms. It helped put an end to it."
says, "Well actually my sister has dealt with this on the bus with her oldest.
A older boy kept grabbing her sons ears and pulling them. My sister
finally told the bus driver if you don't move my son or the other kid I
am going to start riding the bus to make sure my son is safe. Then she
went to the school superintendent."
says, "Yes in my area it's common. If you are concerned, make a point to speak
with the bus driver. If something happens and the bus driver shrugs it
off go to the school. My niece had a bully problem and no one would do
anything about it until my sister actually talked to the child's parents,
and when that didn't work--she told my niece to handle it herself.
Sometimes where they live (in the middle of nowhere land) that's the
only way something gets resolved. We don't support fighting at all but
if it comes to it then it comes to it.

No, my child would never go for that.
