I recently was a member of another online mothers group. I joined looking for supportive people with a sense of humour. Mostly it was great, until a mother asked a question about leaving kids in the car. Now I am totally against this practice, and said so. I was polite about it too (for me this is pretty good!) Next thing there is literally a pack of women blastingmy every comment in the most vicious attack of bullying I have experienced since high school. After nearly a week of constant misery, it got to the point I did not want to even glance at facebook I was so upset. It suddenly dawned on me – I am an adult. I do not have to tolerate this. I removed myself from the group – problem solved. It made me think though, when we hear of teenagers being bullied, the most obvious solution doesn’t always come easily.
