It's been a rough, crazy September around here. We've had plans for every weekend since coming back from vacation & it was crazy but we made it through, you know why? Because it was all good stuff (mostly).

The bad stuff had nothing to do with the weekends, really. The bad stuff has been going on with my kids.

Yes they bicker & fight with each other. I'm used to that, though it makes me nuts. That's not the bad stuff. Oh no. The bad stuff is that this has nothing to do with them at home. The bad stuff is that my kids are getting bullied at school.

It's happened to both my kids but not at the same time. Though recently I'm having more trouble with one more than the other. I won't go into details, but I will say that as a Mother, I am hurt, I am devastated, and extrememly ANGRY.

I have taken measures as any parent would, but unfortuanetly it doesn't seem to be isolated with just 1 kid. This is not acceptable, especially that it's happening so early in the school year. I don't want my daughter to end up not wanting to go to school because of this.

I don't run from things, usually I react....LOUDLY. However I can't do that since it involves my kids & they will suffer for it...meaning I'd like to tell off the parents of the kids that are making my daughter's life a misery, but have to be diplomatic about the situation. Besides, I would be stooping to their level. Two wrongs don't make a right, you know?

I've told Joe that I want to move, preferrably to a desserted island, but I know you can't run from your problems, nor can I isolate my kids. I just don't want them hurt from kids that are just plain MEAN that they thought were their friends.

Just needed to vent.

Hugs my friend! It hurts so bad when someone is especially mean to one of your children. I work at an Elementary school and kids can be so very mean but their parents almost always say "my kids not a bully". I don't understand it really. I will be thinking about your girls and praying for them too!

I'm so sorry to hear about the bullying. I don't know what is wrong with kids ... I hope things are getting better for the girls.

That's terrible that your girls are being bullied! I think no matter what the school's position and how much they talk about bullying, it still goes on and they don't do enough to stop it or try to control it. As a mother it's hard not to react when your children are being bullied.
