nick austin Posted over 1 year ago Debate: Who's to blame for bullies? I agree, I think first and foremost the parents are directly to blame for bullies. I think poor parenting and poor examples demonstrated by one's elders takes a direct effect on a kid more then anything else. Terrible parenting is what I feel is the source of bullying and couldn't agree with you anymore Mendy. I think this is an on going issue for years and feel that kids are not the only victim of it. Thank you for sharing.
