If you were ever bullied as a child, what did you do about it?

I only experienced being bullied once or twice. I remember avoiding one neighborhood football meet as a solution. I remember giving a guy from the pool hall a guitar, getting him started on how to play, and asking him to join my band. In fact, it was two pool hall guys I did this for. It turns out they were pretty able to defend themselves and liked me, so nobody ever messed with me. BTW, they became some of my best friends in life.

I was bullied as a child for having a tooth that stuck out in front too much (it shifted later as it started coming through better), being fat, and having a perky nose. Kids will bully kids to try to make themselves feel better about them and a lot of bullies are bullied themselves at home.

I remember putting up with the class bully until something gave inside, and I fought back hard enough he was literally afraid I was going to kill him. That put a rapid end to the bullying.

I didn't get bullied as a kid. It is something that I can never let anyone do to my kids as well. Kids are gift from God and should enjoy the love and care from people around them.
