LOL!!! I know so many parents who would love to respond in a similar manner. Here is one for you. My friend's daughter was being bullied by another four-year-old at the school. Attempting to teach her daughter to stand up for herself in a polite way, she told her to respond with a statement learned at Sunday school. The next day, when taunted by the bully, the child responded, "Jesus loves you even though you are mean." Expecting to get a call from the director, my friend proactively told her what had happened. The director guffawed because...the bully and his family are Jewish.

That's pretty good, Susan.

I don't want to pick on these parents; love is blind and parental love is blind, deaf and dumb. (I know; I are one.)

But it's just so funny when your kid comes home with tales of other parents' little angels taking off their shoes and smacking other kids in the cheek "for no reason!"

Or the kid in my wife's class who was beating the daylights out of a kid and when pulled off him, told Cristie, "I was just getting my exercise, Miss Bosch!"

"I was just getting my exercise..." LOL! Agreed, we are all blind, deaf and dumb when it comes to our children. They are just magical beings! What I do find interesting is how the kids, at ages 2 and 3, already know who the bully is in their classes! My husband took a poll when dropping off our daughter the other day (the kids love him because they "roar like tigers" at him and he roars back) and seven of them named the same boy.

Yes, Scout the other day said. "Dad, you know what? I think Freda is a little mean."

It's funny, yes, but one of my kids was bullied in school this year to the point where we had to engage a psycologist to help said child over the trauma. Not so funny anymore. I know our instinct as parents is to find everything our kids do charming and delightful. But I hope if my child were behaving badly, someone would tell me in a calm, even way, so I could do something about it.
