Bullying is a part of social growth for the bully and stunts it for victims. Fault the parents for not raising there kids to be tough enough, how the hell are they supposed to raise a kid who is undersized to be bigger or stronger?
No, it doesn't stunt the victim in anyway shape or form if raised properly. Life is hard, it's rough, there are no happy endings and the world doesn't care about you, and bullying is a social aspect that helps kids understand that you must overcome, that you must stand up for yourself, that you must learn to grow some thick skin and handle tough situations.
Parents need to teach their kids to kick ass, stand up for themselves, be brave and don't run away. Parents need to raise their kids in a way that gives them a lot of self-worth and self-confidence, this is how parents used to raise their kids. When I was a kid, if someone bullied me, you know my what my parents would have done? They would have told me to punch that kid in the face, push him back, remove him from my path and stand up to him, if it's more than one, then I am to handle more than one.
They would not have ran to the school and cried like little sissies telling school officials to look out for me, because the moment I'm off school property, teachers and the school officials are not there to help me, aid me, protect me - I am to LEARN to do this own my own, to stand up for myself on my own, to protect myself on my own.
If my parents had ran to the school and fought all m battles when growing up, I'd have no confidence when a confrontation happened, I'd have no ability to handle tough situations by myself, hell, I would bet money that half of who I am today is from dealing with situations on my own and learning how to overcome them by myself - all of which were able to be learned by the simple act of my parents not intercepting my troubles, and making me stand up and handle them head on on my own, and telling me that I must, as the world is tough and I must face it like a man.
Kids are not raised like this anymore, they are raised in a pillow fluffed world where the ground is made of chocolate marshmallows, and when these kids step into a social ground of animals that are naturally aggressive, naturally bully/tease/pick on other kids, they feel so hurt and unprepared for it, that they do stuff like killing themselves, because their parents and their parents alone did not prepare them and raise them in a way to handle anything on their own.
Bullies are nothing more than kids that do what kids do, they have done this for thousands of years, it's in our DNA to be aggressive and test our boundaries as kids, it's how we learn, adapt, adjust, and parents need to raise their kids to be ready for this type of situation.
