The Wisdom of a Twelve Year Old

  1. What an incredibly wise young woman. I hope that the world doesn’t beat her up and cause her to lose that purity of spirit.

    As someone who was horribly bullied as a kid, I’m not so sure I buy the idea that kids who bully other kids are looking for love or searching for who they are – all teenagers (in particular) are searching for who they are. Bullies are insecure people who turn those insecurities outward to anyone they can find, preferably someone who also has insecurity issues that are easier to see than their own.

  2. Hi Kris, oh…I do hope so as well. I’m so sorry for what you went through, the wounds run deep, don’t they? Actually, when I was writing the blog, I was referring to the self-destructive behavior of some of our kids. I don’t think that I was clear on that. I’m no expert but it breaks my heart to see kids hurt themselves (or more) as a result of things like peer pressure or bullying. I should have been clearer. Believe me, I can’t begin to get inside a ‘bully’s head’ but I do know there is no tolerance for that.
