I'm looking for parents who has had children who bullied others to be sources for a story that I am writing for Babyzone. Doesn't have to be physical -- it can also be the "mean girl"/emotional bullying syndrome. Also doesn't have to be current -- you can talk about how you conquered it. The story's focus is to tell parents how to cope and how to break the cycle. Please email me asap at janwilson86@yahoo.com, the clock is ticking on my deadline!!!!

I'm not a parent, but I am an aunt, and I did have occasion to discuss some behavioral issues with my then-teenage nephew. He wasn't doing anything physical, but he was being a little s**thead to some kids who weren't as handsome and popular as he was. I managed to convince him that "what goes around comes around" and the universe has a way of getting even. Ideally, he would have improved his behavior on his own, because it was the right thing to do...but I was willing to settle for improvement based on fear of instant karmic retribution, until he was ready to develop some maturity and insight. (Which he did, eventually, by the way!)

Please spay/neuter your companion animals. And when it's time to add to your four-legged family, save a life by adopting a stray or from a shelter or rescue group.
