Default bullying at school

what is your experience of bullying at school

I wasn't bullied much, their were a couple kids who didn't like me and would do small pranks, but nothing that major or serious (I think probably the craziest thing kids made me do was to make me drink/ eat weird stuff)

in traditional vortex fashion, this will be a poll with 10? (or how ever many I can actually think of to include.)

Is there a category for being bullied by the headmistress?? Every morning on arrival, every break time! She didn't like being forced to include lower class children.

3grade the teacher bullied me changed me a lot from a care free happy child to sad. The principal wanted to know what happened to me but I couldn't her her it was her teacher. Then in 7th grade there was a bully who picked on me and many others but I gave her as good as she gave me so she stopped picking on me. I suspect her home life was awful cause the teachers protected her even though she carried a knife....yeah this was decades ago.

Never bullied & I stuck up for kids that were.

I was part of the upper group grade wise & we stuck together & they backed me when I stuck up for kids.....but in general I was in school from 1958-1970 & in our area bullying & even teasing didn't happen. We even had a kid in our grade school class that had been held back several years (before they had special education). He was disruptive in class but most just left him alone & he did his own thing as he just had no interest (or maybe ability) to interface with others.

Unhappy Re: bullying at school

I was terrorized by a gang of older boys for 4 years. Everyone knew what was going on. But no one cared... including my parents. At one point one of them beat me up breaking my nose. When he was questioned about it, he said I called him a name. So I got blamed for it. Perhaps it would be too strong to say it destroyed my life. But certainly didn't do it any good...

Default Re: bullying at school

I was heavily bullied both at home and at school, and while I never give anyone a hard time, if someone tries me even in the slightest I can easily become one. Someone once told me I was like a nest of bees. As long as I was left alone I was fine. I can be very unpleasant. (Which is true). I don't apologize for this, because after HS I didn't take anyone's crap anymore. Period.

Unfortunately, I was bullied a bit when I went to school. I did not realize it at the time as I was a bit of an outsider and thought it was normal. There was one lad, in particular, that seemed to have it in for me.
It's all history now though. I have made my peace with school days.

That is awful. I hate bullies.

I was also bullied and could never bully anyone. I was always the outsider even now as an adult I have always been left out of things. School I was the only one that was left till the last when other kids picked their partners to so something.
