My little sister is being bullied at school
Just a Bully by Gina MayerI generally like the Little Critter Books, but this is definitely not one of my favorites. My kids like it, but I am not sure I like the message it presents. Not only do Little Critter and his sister solve their problem by fighting the bully, but then they show aggression back towards the bully, in essence becoming bullies themselves. As a teacher, I also am not a fan of how the teacher in the book is portrayed as not doing enough to deal with the issue of the bully. Every time I read it to my kids, I take the time to discuss with them the better choices that Little Critter and his sister could have made to better deal with the situation.

Recently, The Irish Times published a series of articles about sibling bullying. The articles provoked a strong reaction from readers — many of whom were keen to share their own experiences of sibling bullying. Unfortunately, we cannot publish all the submissions, but here are a sample from our readers. My brother, who is four years my senior, made my life a living hell. There was just something inside him that he truly despised about me. It became a nagging obsession of my brother to compare his life with mine, demanding I receive no special treatment or attention from my parents.
I am a sister that has a brother being bullied
The bullying started when she was in kindergarten and lasted through fourth grade. It sounds like a nightmare, and for this family it absolutely was. A recent study involving nearly 7, children found that the risk of bullying increases for kids who have more than one brother or sister. Lead author of the study, Dieter Wolke, PhD, told Healthline his latest research came about after reading anecdotes sent in to the BBC by readers about sibling bullying. She will tell her to shut up.
Then my rationality set in. What is it about my sister? Are you threatened by her? Your bullying puts her down. Bullying gives you power. It makes you feel better.
