If someone had called you a salami head in the sixth grade, would you have gone home and asked your parents to call the school because you were being bullied?

School would have (did) called my parents. My parents never called the school but it’s a different day I’m afraid.

I was in the 6th Grade in 1973.

“Salami Head” would have been handled by 2 kids.

Maybe a Coach would watch and break it up, but that’s as far as it would go.

its a different world for kids in school...

there are too many double standards to keep up with.

I have found telling administration to start parenting classes usually helps make my case when those calls come.

public education is a absolute MESS.

No, but I did bully a kid in our 5th Grade year. His name was Derek and he was “special,” actually he was just very smart. He left our school the following year and I had a guilt I couldn’t get rid of. He came back our junior year and I was able to apologize and we actually wound up being friends. I can still picture the time I threw rocks at him as he went down a slide on the playground in 1997... time heals all things but I will never forget that.

Bullying can be in many different forms nowadays, especially in today’s social networking world. I don’t want my boys to be “soft” but they need to understand what’s right and wrong. Hard or soft!

My wife as a 5th grade teacher laughed when I asked her. But, she said if it’s something that continues and has happened multiple times, then yes it would be considered bullying.

I laughed at salami head being an insult then immediately thought about things I said as a young kid in school. All I can do is hang my head in shame

Salami head would have been a welcome change to some of the things I've heard, but nothing got to me. Most of those name callers are far worse off than I am these days, but I won't stoop to their level and do the same now...well maybe.

Any time the word bully is used they have to do an investigation and is wastes multiple teachers time. It's totally past insane.

If Salami head is enough to hurts someone's feelings, they are gonna have a long life and they need to man up. Growing up being named Boone, I've heard it all... lol. Ya gotta come at me with some original chit to get to my feelings now lol. Bullying is part of life, I've done it to people and people have done it to me. It definitely gave me tough skin but I wouldn't change it for the world. It made me who I am and I take great pride in my name now.

We would have done one of two things, laughed about it or went to the the ground fighting. No adult supervision required. Either way we would probably be friends after it was over, now the cops are called and it’s a huge deal for kids to fight. Back then it’s how’s beefs we’re settled, like young men have always done it. The times have changed for sure and not in a way I can honestly say is for the better IMO.

Growing up with the last name of Pepper, a head shorter than everyone else and not having the luxuries of other kids, I was picked on constantly. I grew up in the "don't start it but you better finish it" world of the 70's-80's and it seemed like all I did was fight. I got my butt kicked multiple times, but not always, and most of the time it was over with me just standing my ground and being willing to fight. There is a natural "pecking" order in all things of this world. Society doesn't let the pecking order play out anymore and we end up with what we have today. I now see my grand kids going through the mess we have and am thankful that my kids are considering home school. Good thread. God bless

Twice now I've had parents approach my wife on behalf of their kids. My kid was calling one of them "short" and the other kid "stick". Stick was actually a nick name that was given to this kid from her school. So it's not like my daughter made it up.

While I agree 100% that my kid went overboard with it, I wish that kids understood how to stand up for themselves. A simple "please don't call me that" would have been fine. We don't need to get parents involved for an official meeting.

I've taught my kids to respect other people. Unfortunately my oldest is like me, she doesn't know when the joke is over. So she ends up taking things too far.

My son was bullied in the 5th grade. We tried various strategies to avoid the other kid, notify the teacher, etc. It came down to my son making the decision that any consequences would be worth it and after nearly the entire school year he went to school, walked up to the kid unannounced and punched him in the face.

The school called and we explained our side. I told the principal that the other kid’s parents should know that my son was authorized to continue punching their kid in the face on a daily basis if need be from this point forward until the bullying stopped. The school did not like that. But the other never said another peep.

Salami head would have been more like a nickname versus bullying back in the 70s and 80s. **** paper kids and their parents these days. ...sheesh. Nobody is taught to deal with anything these days in our overprotective society.

My oldest son tried to get his counselor to change his class once. The counselor said that the deadline had passed for schedule changes. He made up the story and told them there was a boy in the class that was bullying him. They changed him that day.

My Son is 6'2", 200lbs and has a Bachelors degree in Space Physics and is currently in his masters program at John Hopkins. Weak minded he is not.

I look at it as a young kid who was smart enough to use the system against itself.

I don't understand why my comment got that reaction. My be bullying is a sore subject for you.
