No I don’t love it 😒 I have 3 different kids in my classroom who are always running home about being “bullied” then the parents storm the office raising holy hell...only to find out that their sweet perfect angel started some stuff verbally and then tattled when another student responded...🙄 it’s been ongoing all year 😩


Something my coworkers and I talk about regularly! It’s difficult, because yes bullying needs to be handled, but the misuse and misunderstanding of the word/concept is counterproductive to accomplishing that.


Yes! I feel like the parents need to be educated on what the term actually implies!


Right! Now a kid feels "bullied" if they're not babied enough


Are parents bullying you?


Lol no. A parent of a student of mine was complaining that her daughter was being bullied when in fact another student just made a rude comment.

Also, is there an overwork culture? Do management expect people to work more hours than the stipulated?
