Set­ting the right ex­am­ple

Friday - - Friday Inbox -

The ar­ti­cle on bul­ly­ing (‘How to beat the bul­lies’, Septem­ber 6) brought back some dis­turb­ing mem­o­ries as I too was teased and bul­lied by se­nior kids when I was in school.

I won­der where kids get this mean streak from? Should par­ents be held re­spon­si­ble for this be­hav­iour? I think so. It is im­por­tant that par­ents and teach­ers set high stan­dards as far as so­cial be­hav­iour is con­cerned and let the kids know that they will be pun­ished if they cross the line.
