    I seem to remember plenty of bullying happening around me when I was growing up.

    I suppose, I grew up in a different era, when we learned to ignore & cope with negative comments, & learned that other people sometimes just suck. Sticks & stones...

    We in society now believe, it is our duty to protect children from hurt feelings & disappointment.

    Half of the growth potential of the human existence is wrapped up in the negative things we experience & have opportunity to learn from.

    I fear for the kids who go through their youth never experiencing bad things, for their adulthood is going to be filled all the things they never learned to cope with.

      For me the interesting question is how they will view and treat their children. It could go very differently, good or ill. Will they realize they were coddled or make it even worse?
