  1. Interesting perspective. I believe in compassion and understanding. It’s hard to think about with bullies though. A sore point for me. Memories of growing up and all that. Still, I can understand the value of being compassionate with bullies, as long as it doesn’t mean ignoring or condoning the behavior.

    • Definitely not wanting to condone or ignore their behavior either! I like the way the school district, where the boys who bullied the bus driver, handled it. The boys received a punishment that fit the crime for once. Hopefully, this will help teach them and others as well. I absolutely love that they have to do community service and attend a bully prevention program in addition to not being able to ride the bus for a year. I personally would like to see more bullying handled this way.
