“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” – Frederick Douglass
Also, it’s important to think about how perceived “bullying” is framed psychologically by the child. One should not build a habit of seeing themselves as “victims”, but rather find ways to build strong self-esteem, take responsibility for their own well-being, and not be affected adversely but such psychological affronts.
Easier said than done, but as we learn later in life, the only one thing we really have control over is our way of thinking, and we will need to continually overcome even more difficult challenges in life in order to grow and learn. Speaking from experience, seeing myself in the frame of being a victim in the past did nothing for my personal development and growth.
Empower yourself early in life, take every challenge as a learning experience rather than a defeat.
