I would be mortified if my child was the bully because my husband and I work so hard to teach our kids to go against the grain and have the guts to stand up for anyone who is being bullied. If it was my child, I would walk them over to their victims' home, and we would apologize to the child and their parents. All of us have to speak up about those who bully and those who are being bullied, even when it's one of the most uncomfortable things you'll ever have to do as a parent. It's got to stop.
