  • You know what I got off that paper you took a picture of? Fuck it. Yep, that was it

    I kinda lost the thread about H, but since it seems like he is going to be a fact of life, I think you should give him a book and whenever possible make it clear what the right answer is and praise him for making it. Sometimes all that's needed is the option to HAVE a right answer. However, most of your focus should be on protecting your kids and teaching them to deal with the situation.

    Who was it that mentioned as an adult they just avoid bullies? You've never had a family member or coworker or client try to bully you? Those people tend to be hard to avoid. It is EASIER to avoid bullies as an adult, but not always possible.

      Well, the answer was it's getting nailed, but now that my ex up...could you afford to feed her? That's why we broke up.
      If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

        That was me. I may just be lucky or it could very well be that I'm forgetful because I really don't remember having to be around a bully as an adult. In my profession as a chef I've certainly encountered some chef's that were jerks but I've never felt that I had to stick it out working with them. As an adult for some one to be a bully they have to have some sort of power over the person that's the target of their bullying and the victim has to feel trapped, I've always felt I could leave a situation that wasn't working for me. If an adult is a bully it's very unlikely that they will change their behavior.

        • I haven't had to deal with a lot of bullies as an adult, but i've had to deal with a few. i've had the ability to just leave the situation, though of course that came with its own costs. however, i've been a stay at home mom most of my life, so other than my husband and family who live in town, most other human interactions are optional.

          as a kid, i probably encountered bullies but again i was pretty lucky. I had plenty of friends, so never really felt that ostracized. well, there was a time in middle school when my two best friends ostracized me; it took me a little while to see that was a dead end and to make new friends. other than that, I can look back and see that i was teased by a few people over an extended period but at the time it wasn't bad enough that i really took notice. i'm sure if i was targeted by multiple people, or if it was physical bullying, it wouldn't have rolled off like it did. i also had a decent self-esteem and a mom who teased us as kids (so my knee-jerk reaction was to say "yeah whatever" instead of becoming offended or hurt).

                    I know oranges are not perfect spheres but I can't imagine they expected calculus for a 10 year old.
                    I think they expected displacement, since it was 'science' class, not math class, and apparently had been going over displacement stuff. Or at least, I heard this after the fact.

                    And, it is pretty "regular" schooling. Steiner schools teach math practically (ie, age 5 they start knitting, which is counting, addition, etc) and they also do modest woodworking (making knitting needles, etc). By age 10, they've moved into making their own knives, bows, and what not, and they might have gotten into weaving after knitting. So the first 5 years are really spent on a lot of practical workings of math.

                    Physics starts at age 10-11; and I think that as they head into age 13/14 they start working with calculus and the like.

                    But it's not taught at all traditionally. Everything is taught in terms of -- myth/literature, theorhetical discussion, art project, hand working project, physical building project. So, you learn a lot of things that you don't know you're learning, and the kids are outdoors at least 2-4 hours a day learning in the gardens, woods, or actually building/repairing the school, and so on.

                    I think it creates a really practical education model.

                    Anyway, fun stuff. In years 12/13 here, they learn how regular school works, so that they can get the tricks of passing tests for university. LOL

                          very much so.

                          My wife almost got expelled from school over a math class involving oranges. As such, I can't read a school orange/math-science story without laughing.

                            Yeah, I tried this but the bouncer would not let them in without proper ID.

                            I hope your 4th went well. We actually had a fireworks display this year (yay for some rain) which was cool.

                              That's funny, that's the same thing I said about her the next day. It seems she wasn't the only one a little too drunk.

                                It always sucks when friends turn on you. I have been in a couple of situations with adult bullies. Sure, I could leave the situation- if I left the job.
