Words That Sting, a Form of Bullying

Bullying-words-that-sting

"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me." This old English Nursery Rhyme isn't really true, because name calling and words can hurt and sting for a lifetime.

Has your child been made fun of or been bullied because they are different.  Names like stupid, slow, retarded, idiot, and "simpled minded" are examples of words that are cruel and hard for a child to overcome. Children living with disabilities, whether learning, intellectual, social, emotional or physical disabilities may have experienced this form of bullying and for some the scars can last a lifetime.
