    Because they are different from other kids. I know because I was bullied many types in different grades and schools. I had my own unique ways of carrying myself than following others. Many kids can be pick on for their appearance, eating ways, laughing, smiling, special Ed, disabilities, and more . But we still have to sit down with our kids to explain why bulling is wrong and why you getting bullied in school.

      I think genetics play a significant factor. The size of certain parts of your brain that control aggression can have a big effect.

        While I think some kids are bullies because of dysfunction in their homes, I think others do it because they are experimenting with having power. It's easy to see how it would be better to be the person doing the picking than to be the one picked on. Those kids I absolutely think we can reach and turn them around. Some kids are just mean though. They may have the nicest parents ever and they are just not nice kids.
