Living large in Fatopia.

Stop Raising Bullies!

Stop Raising BulliesIf you really want to put an end to bullying, there’s only one way to do it. Stop raising bullies in the first place. Sounds simple, right? Well, it is.

I come from a family of large people. My dad is six foot six inches tall, my brother in six foot three, my mother is five foot nine, and I’m five foot ten. That may not sound large and in charge now, but when I was growing up we seemed like giants among men. And my parents were smart enough to realize that their kids weren’t perfect little angels. Honestly, we can have the temper of Satan himself at times. Thankfully, they recognized this character flaw in us and addressed it before it became a serious problem. Remember those days? When parents actually gave their kids some home training and expected them to act like they had it.

My parents gave us three simple rules to live by when it came to dealing with others when I was growing up. These three rules taught me how not to treat people. It’s common sense really, which seems to be in short supply these days, so I share their wisdom with you now.

  • If they’re younger than you, don’t pick on them.
  • If they’re smaller than you, don’t pick on them.
  • If they’re different from you, don’t pick on them.

See, common sense. Thank you Mom and Dad. 


Talk to me. I don't bite ... too hard ;-)
