No one can make you feel inferior without your consent...

Friday, February 26, 2016

No truer words have ever been spoken. Today my daughter was the victim of a workplace bully. She called me sobbing because this person degraded her and made her feel helpless. She came to my work where I hugged her, comforted her, and told her she had to go back. It was the hardest thing I had ever had to do, but to stay off the rest of the day would have allowed this horrible person to win. Having to face a bully is so hard, and they are every where...at school, at work, and sometimes even at home, but if you let them win then they will always feel like they can treat people that way. You don't have to stoop to a bully's level to stand up to them...sometimes you just have to keep standing back up when you're pushed down.

    Awesome Job Mom! She will learn by your examples…and they are good ones at that. I just wrote a blog about setting examples today.

    Great saying and good advice. However, I also agree that this needs to be documented. Please talk with her and stress that to her. Hope she's okay.

    It is so hard to be the victim, and has to be even harder being the mom watching your child struggle. Good advice.

    I F*****G hate bullies! She needs to document this and report it. If it does not get resolved she needs to take it higher.
