Bullying is a very real problem in all stages of life but it starts at a young age. Dads, we need to do better in helping our children how to handle tough situations involving bullying. We also need to set an example for our children when it comes to managing stressful encounters, and how to be good citizens in school, in extracurricular activities, and online.
In episode 3 of the Dad Tax podcast, I talk about an incident my children were confronted with on the school bus earlier in the school year. I also touch on a few other topics that can help or hurt our children’s ability to do the right thing. We need to do better for our children through teaching and practice.
In the podcast, I mention two movies. Here are the books. I highly recommend your children read them.
Alright dads, it’s time for a little bit of honesty, a little bit of truth, truthfulness as a child. We moved around a lot, I went to many different schools. And one of the things that happens when you’re always the new kid in school, you get bullied. So I was bullied, sometimes relentlessly, depending on the age and where I was. It actually, believe it or not, the bullying pretty much stopped when we moved to a larger city, and I ended up going to an inner-city school, very diverse school. That’s when the bullying stopped. It was a you know, a couple of little incidents. But for most of my childhood, most of my elementary and middle school years, I was bullied. And I didn’t know how to take care of myself because, well, the whole reason I launched the debt taxes because my father wasn’t around. So nobody was there to teach me how to defend myself. How to protect myself how to take care of myself. Bullying sucks, and you know why kids get bullied because parents allow it to if we’re not involved in our children’s lives, and I’m not saying that this is 100% across the board, but in reality, it happens more than it should weigh more than should. Parents, especially your dads, teach your kids not to be bullies. Teach your kids to stand up against bullying. Welcome to the dad tax podcast a podcast for dads by dads a podcast for all things dads, including mental health, fatherhood challenges, relationships, sports, business, grilling, and more. So put on your white new balances sit back in your reclining chair, and let’s talk dads. All right dads, welcome to episode three of the dad tax podcast as you probably already assumed this is going to be about bullying. And I’m going to talk about an incident that one of my children experienced not too long ago this school year 2021 to 22. My two youngest are on the same bus. My son is was in sixth grade. My daughter was in second grade. So they’re on the school bus. For those of you that don’t know my children are interracial. So they are half black, half white. So my daughter has gorgeous, beautiful curly, curly, curly hair. beautiful hair. I love her hair, in most people compliment her hair. However, one day on the school bus, these two girls two sisters older than her, they were more my son’s age. started picking on her. And what they did was they poured water on her on her hair, called her a poodle and then said she was ugly. So the pool remark could be considered racist, and I do consider it to be racist. They probably recognize that she does not have what you would call white people hair and I’m being honest with everybody. If this offends you, I apologize. This is the nature of it. So they would notice her hair’s very curly. She doesn’t usually let it all actually my wife doesn’t usually let her hair out. It’s usually up in braids or in an urban. This particular day, she wanted her hair out and I don’t blame her. She’s got beautiful hair, as I said. So she had her hair out. These girls, these two girls poured water on her hair, called her a poodle and told her she was ugly. Now, I might be biased, but I think my daughter is beautiful. And I love her hair. And I think most people would agree with that sentiment. My son stepped in as any big brother should right there. These two are always at each other’s throats but he stepped in as the second time he stepped in, in her short school career, stepped in and told these two girls, he actually did not handle it 100% The right way but but I wasn’t upset with him and I’ll get to that in a minute, called the girls fat and told them to leave my daughter alone. One of the girls immediately from the bus called what I was told was her aunt to meet them at the bus stop because my son was picking on them. My son who just stepped in because his little sister was being bullied. Yeah, that happened. So the art again I’m not sure if it was the art but that’s what I was told I met them at the best bus stop
and begin arguing with my son, who at the time was 11 years old. So this grown adult woman decided to take it upon herself to meet her nieces at the bus stop, to argue with my son through the bus window. I don’t know she tried to come on the bus, the bus driver apparently told her she needed to step away, walk away. So I don’t know how that ended. Maybe the bus just drove off at that point. My children were one of the last stops so they get home. And they come inside, and I could see on my son’s face, I think he was a little more fazed by it than my daughter was that he was upset. Earlier that day, we received a message from the school that my son had done something amazing in school. I don’t remember what it was now. But we got a great report from one of his teachers at school. And he knew that he was coming home to this this, you know, we got this great report and he was going to be rewarded. And he was excited about that before this incident, comes in the door. He says not good. Because now I’m going to be in trouble. Okay, what happened? Ask him what happened? And he tells me what happened. He tells me the story I just told you. I said, Absolutely not. You’re not in trouble. You should not have called that girl fat. But I understand why you did that. I understand. And I was so almost all read. Dads I saw read as I’m sure you can imagine you would too. I wanted to go to this, these people’s house. I wanted to confront this woman. And I wanted to say, What is wrong with your children? Why would you do something like this? I did not. What we did do after we got the full story is we contacted the school and parents this is where where we cannot fill our children anymore. Because I do believe that some of this increased amount of violence that we’re seeing in our country in the United States, by young adults, talking 18 to maybe 25. is due to bullying. I’m not making excuses. These incidents of gun violence are horrific, horrific incidents. But what makes it you know, the psychologists will tell you that your brain is not fully developed until your early 20s. So why are these 1817 1819 2021 2223 year olds going to buy these, these weapons and showing up at a school or showing up at a public event or showing up at, you know, a church and just shooting indiscriminately at people. And I do believe mental health is a big huge part of it. And I do believe that some of that is because of what is occurring on a daily basis in schools, on social media with kids, or via text message via WhatsApp, Tik Tok. All of these things, I do believe that it contributes. We need to do a better job of curtailing it at a younger age. So now here’s what we did. We got we call the school, we demanded that we meet with the other family. The school did not want to do this. So we said all right, the school said let us handle it, we’ll address it. And we we let them address it. And with the stipulation that if they did not address it, that we would and we would go as high as we needed to go. I’m gonna tell you right now, dads, my wife and I, we are not the kind of people that will back down from something like this. We’re going to continue to push until it’s addressed. The school knows this because we’ve raised other issues not related to this, but you know, curriculum issues or lack of something in the school, things like that. We’ve raised issues with the school before they know we’re on top of things. And it’s exhausting. It’s tiring, and I get it you know, we work full time jobs and we have to deal with our kids. But you had children this is your job, Dad’s you have to stay on top of things. You have to make sure they do their schoolwork that they do the things they’re supposed to do around the house that they have. You know, they’re not spending all day staring at a screen. These are all the things we need to do. So the school said they would handle it. The very next day. My kids got an apology on the bus. Not from the arm but from the two girls.
I don’t think the art I ever talked to my son again, I don’t know, as far as I know, they did not. They got an apology from the two girls. We questioned the bus driver. Why, you know, why did wasn’t this brought to our attention the bus driver never. In previous years, if there was an incident on bus, you know, my son was acting up on the bus or in my acting up, I mean, he was just being loud as boys will do. Or whatever it whatever it might be. It was brought to our attention when my son punched a child, another child in kindergarten, who, by the way, was borderline bullying him, we got a phone call immediately. So we know that the school is capable of communicating with the parents when something is wrong. I don’t know why this particular bus driver did not address it, when it needed to be addressed when it should have been brought to my attention as they were dropping, you know, an adult, parent or otherwise a guardian is supposed to be at the bus stop when the bus drops them off. I’m always there when the bus comes. I don’t know why the bus driver didn’t communicate this incident with me. But the bus nonetheless, the bus driver didn’t. The next day, my kids got an apology, my daughter got an apology, my son, you know, he didn’t, he wasn’t the victim here. He
he’s the one to intervene. So, you’re probably wondering, okay, why am I doing this, there’s,
there’s a few different types of parents out there, there are parents that will say, Well, if my child is being bullied, they have the right to punch, you know, to hit you or to do what they have to do. So this is what I teach my children. If there’s an issue, if there’s a situation where you’re being bullied, you’re being picked on your, you know, whatever, anything where the behavior is inappropriate. We walk away unless you can’t walk away. That’s exactly what we should be teaching our children here, you walk away, unless you can’t walk away. If you’re cornered, then you have no choice. You cannot, you have to do what you have to do. My kids know this. They’re not violent children, they don’t get into fights. They don’t and they don’t bully. And I’m gonna get to that in a minute. You teach them to walk away until they can’t walk away. If they witness, my children know this, I’m going to I’m going to give you an example in a few minutes. If they witness someone getting picked on. intervene. Now I’m not saying go punch. The kid in the face the aggressor, don’t go punch that kid in the face. Don’t do that. Unless you absolutely have to, again, if you’re cornered, you don’t have a choice. There it is. My arms are up in the air. You can’t see that. But that’s what it is. You go over, you ask the other kid, is there something you know, you want to take a walk you want to go go to recess with me you want to eat lunch with me something you just get in between the bully and the bullied. And my son is now is obviously not 11 anymore. He’s a little bit older. But I know my I know what I’m teaching. My son is working now. My son is tough. He’s small for his age, but he’s tough. And he’s not going to back down. And I know this, because I’ve witnessed him not backing down in the past, if he you know, whether it’s a discussion that he has he’s passionate about, or whether it’s, you know, somebody being mean or whatever it is, you know, he plays he is an athlete, he plays sports, plays baseball. And he’s he’s dealt with mean children on baseball teams before. Recently, I was made aware of a friend of his this is a good friend of his who was being mean to another friend of his. My son said, My son told that friend, the first friend that was being mean, you know, that’s not cool. This is supposedly one of his best friends. That’s not cool. You can’t do that to your to to friends to people. You can’t do that to people in general, not not just friends, but to people in general. And I’m being intentionally vague, because I don’t know if the parents will hear this at some point. And I haven’t talked to the parents yet. But I’m intentionally being vague. So the one kid who’s my son’s very close friend, was being mean to another friend who’s who’s a good friend but not as close. And so my son said to the very close friend, you can’t do that. That’s being mean. He was going to go as far as to the next time that the three of them were to Gather he was going to set the example and say, This is how you’re supposed to treat people. My son also recently on a baseball game. This is when you know you’re doing right. Dad’s. His team was getting mercy diga ended up getting mercy. They were getting beat pretty bad. The other team was hitting homeruns they hit, I don’t know, two or three home runs. And every time one of the kids that hit a home run trotted around the bases my son gave them he was playing shortstop that day, he gave them a high five, you know, to say, Hey, good job. How often do you see that? That’s good sportsmanship. That’s teaching your kids how to treat other people. It starts at home dads, it starts at home, we have got to teach our children how to be better citizens in this world.
You cannot allow them to bully people. You’ve got to have these conversations all the time, I have been having these conversations with him for seven or eight years, nine years, I’m not sure anymore. It’s a long time. But now I see that it’s paying dividends. I see that he gets it. At a young age, he’s still in middle school. At a young age, he’s getting it, he understands picking on people because you know, they’re not as good at baseball or because they have puffy hair poofy hair, or because you know, their skin color is not the same as yours, or because whatever, whatever the reason is, picking on people because they’re not you is wrong. We’ve got to set the example dads, we’ve got to intervene, we’ve got to teach our children. This is how you treat people. Now I’m going through it with my daughter, she’s a little younger, and she is tough. Not gonna lie. She is a tough one. Meaning that she loves to argue her way is the right way and nobody else’s ways, right? A little bit harder than my son to deal with. on that level, my oldest daughter was a was a breeze compared to my two younger children. Each child is different. And we have to recognize that too, we have to recognize that our children are not the same. I don’t have the same relationship with my son that I do with my daughters. And each daughter is different as well. The different age, we have different, they have different interests. But you have got to teach them how to be good citizens, because at the end of the day, doesn’t matter what their interests are, or what they do for hobbies or what sports they play or what grades they get in school or who their friends are, or what movies they like to watch the they have got to be good citizens. And that will it will spread. You know, I teach my son how to be a good citizen. By sticking up for the kid or not even sticking up for the kid you see a kid he’s alone. You go you go play with them at recess or, and he’s done that he’s he’s absolutely done that new kid in the class. He’s out. He was at a grade this year. That’s tough for new kids. So this kid came in partway through the school year. It’s already been crazy the last few years. Thanks, COVID. Appreciate it.
But this kid comes in partway through the school year, my son made friends when we’ve got to teach our kids how to be better citizens.
So how do we do that? We teach them that violence is not always the answer is not always the right solution. You teach them that? If they have no choice, yes, it’s okay. You got to protect yourself. And then that’s how you’re going to teach these bullies that you’re not going to be bullied. It’s understandable, but even more, so. Maybe you don’t We don’t know what the bully situation is. How often do we hear that the bullies life isn’t so great. Maybe they have a tough home life. Maybe they are getting bullied themselves, maybe something else is going on. So try to try to try to flip the script. I’m dating myself there with that one, flip the script on them and show them that, hey, it’s okay to be friendly. Not so mean. But if that doesn’t work, then you know, walk away. It’s not worth the time, energy and effort. A lot of times, you know, if you do engage, you’re going to end up looking like the bad guy walk away. Again, if you are in a position where you can’t walk away, defend yourself. If you’re in a position where somebody else could use a hand, then give them a hand help them walk away or defend them. And I know that’s not really the optimal solution. And we all know that kids don’t understand the value of life. We get it. So it might be a little more difficult. If you ever get a chance to and you’ve never watched the movie. You ever get a chance to watch the movie pay a full Word or wonder, these are great movies to help you understand, you know, we’re not all the same and kids need someone to be there for them, someone to have their back. And, and when I say that, I don’t mean just parents I mean someone at their own levels, another child their age or maybe a little bit older, a couple years older, you know, if you’re in a middle school and maybe an eighth grader helps the sixth grader or high school senior helps a freshman, we see these stories all the time we see these stories of how football team comes to the rescue for a kid who’s being picked on, or things like that. And I’m talking about real stories, not just movies. So pay it forward, is a great movie to watch. It’s kind of sad, but it’s a great movie. And wonder, is a really good movie, that’s a true story. I don’t think Pay It Forward is, is a true story. But wonder is a true story. And will help you understand, hey, we’re not all the same. And we could always use a helping hand. So teach, teach your children to be better citizens. You know, go sit with the kid was all by himself, introduce yourself to the new kid. Hope your friends who are who are being picked on for whatever reasons, you know, they’re not as good an athlete or they’re not. Maybe they’re not an athlete at all, or they have weird hair. You know, my son’s hair is not like most of the kids in his class. He’s got different hair, and he prefers to keep it long. For now, that may change. He’s been called a girl more times than I can count. And you know what, by the way, that usually happens with adults, not with children. It’s usually the adults that call him a girl. And not that that’s a bad thing. But he’s not a girl. And so he doesn’t want to be called a crook. But he doesn’t say anything. He just lets it go. Teach your children how to let things go. Yes, there’s going to be bullies, we’re going to deal with bullies in every walk of life, school, work, college, sports, whatever you’re doing, there’s going to be bullies, we see it all the time you’re driving on a road. And this guy wants to get in front of you. What is he? What is he doing flashing his lights, he drives rides on your bumper. You know, that’s bullying. It’s bullying, he flips you off as he drives by. It’s bullying. Bottom line is bullying. And if you’re doing this in your children in your car, you’re showing them hey, this is okay. This is this is allowed behavior. And when you get the call from the school saying your child is picking on a kid because he wants to sit at a certain desk. And he’s you know, he’s yelling and screaming at them. Don’t ask where did they pick up their behavior? They picked it up from you. They learned it from you. When your kids swear, where did they pick up the swears? They learned it from you. They didn’t pick it up somewhere else. They learned it from you and you making it okay? By doing it in front of them. And I’m not here to talk about is swearing right or wrong? And what age should a child be able to swear? You know, what movie should they watch? I’m not going to do that on this podcast today.
What I’m telling you is if we don’t teach our children to be the bigger person to say, this is not a good behavior. This is not okay. It’s not okay to tell a seven year old girl that she looks like a poodle and she’s ugly and and pour water on her hair. Her hair that my wife spends a lot of time taking care of a lot of time because beautiful hair. At the same time, it’s not easy to take care of. She spends a lot of time daily that hair has to get done. So to do something like that. And the fact that is two girls that are I think around a lever. So they know better is clearly a bullying incident. These children know that. And I know that the school teaches how to be better people towards the other students how to be good citizens in the school. I know they teach this. So it’s not like they don’t know. This is behavior that is learned at home. And it’s evident when the AI approaches the bus and addresses an 11 year old child in an angry, argumentative and I don’t know if she swore or not. I don’t know what she said to him. But I know she was yelling and screaming. You don’t know the full situation. You don’t talk to a child like that. That’s not your child. You go and you talk to the school or their parents and you let the adults handle the situation. You did you brought yourself down to an 11 year olds level when you did that. That is not okay. That is learned behavior. Because now your two nieces learn this behavior from you and that it’s okay. We need to teach our children to do better and I could promise you that if that continues if if we teach our children to do better, and, and it kind of steamrolls, we’ll call it pay forward, we’ll use the name of the movie
more children will start to do this, they’ll be better people. And as they age up to get into high school, and to college, there’ll be better. Students, there’ll be better athletes, there’ll be better employees, there’ll be a better, there’ll be better business owners, they’ll treat people better. And maybe some of this crazy amount of violence, we’re seeing an insane amount of violence. And I’m not saying this is the solution. I don’t know what the solution is. I can’t tell you, I know what the solution is. But maybe it stops. Or maybe at least decreases. These things cannot continue to happen. I should not be always on alert. When I’m out in public. Grocery shopping, my kids are at school, go to a parade, go to a church, go to church. You know, all of these things I’ve done in the last few months, every last one of them grocery shopping church parade, in my recording this in summer, but they just got out of school a couple weeks ago. And every year every year there is at least one seriously thought of incident at the school meaning a bomb threat or the threat of somebody shooting up to school, in elementary school. Every year at least once there is a lockdown, meaning they take a threat seriously, at least once in elementary school. Why is that happening? And I do believe I don’t think it’s the entire reason. And I don’t think it’s the main reason. There’s some mental health issues that start when a child is bullied, or has a tough home life, meaning they’re beat up at home, or, you know, put down all the time. There’s a lot of variables, and I get it and I’m not a psychologist. But as somebody who’s been bullied, I can tell you, you get to a point where you get fed up, I got fed up. I got fed up. And I ripped a railing off a porch, you know, like those big metal railings that you that people hold on to, to walk up the porch. One day, you know, the five or six steps have ripped it out straight out and just started hitting a kid that was bullying me. And I was a freshman or sophomore in high school. That’s when it ended. That and you know, that was neighborhood kids. The bullying, you know, never really happened in high school. I was in a inner city school. I think things are a little different. For suburbs versus inner city. When it comes to those things. I definitely feel like it’s probably a little different. But this was these were neighborhood kids. I was new to the neighborhood. So they figured Alright, let’s go have some fun. And they did this a few times. And I got tired of it. Nobody was addressing it. No adults were addressing it. Not even sure my mother was aware of it. Single mother, you know, so not sure she was aware of it. And they will pick and kids will pick on you for any reason. You don’t have the right sneakers, your hair looks funny. Usually your skin color is not right. You’re too short. You’re too tall, you’re too skinny, you’re too fat. You walk funny, you got good grades, you have bad grades, they don’t care. They don’t care what the reason you’re the teacher’s pet. You You know, there’s so many variables as to why kids will get bullied. Enough is enough dads Enough is enough. I’m talking to you dads because you set the example. If you’re constantly angry and yelling at your kids, and putting them down and beating them up smacking them around this, that’s a learned behavior. They’re going to go to school and do the same thing. They’re going to go to school and do the same thing to some kid and it’s probably going to be smaller kid. You know, maybe a kid who’s who’s got some disadvantages. I don’t know. I don’t know what it looks like. But I do know that it’s going to continue it’s it rolls downhill. You know that you know that’s saying this is I can’t swear because this is going in Apple, but it rolls downhill. downhill. But not only that, we need to hold our schools accountable. I see it all the time. I look at posts on Facebook of you know, this school is not taking bullying, the bullying that’s going on seriously that school is not taking the bullying situation seriously. We need to hold our school administration accountable. We need to hold our children accountable. Make them good citizens. We need to hold our teachers accountable. You know I’m not asking your teachers, teachers, absolutely, you’re not raising our children, they’re teaching our children. But if they witness an incident and they don’t address it, if they don’t at least make the parents aware, then they’re culpable.
All right, we need to hold everyone, coaches. Anybody who turns a blind eye to bullying is just as guilty as the bully themselves. And if you’re a parent that allows your child to be the bully, if you are purposely allowing your child to be the bully, you have a problem, you have a big problem. And I could promise you there are enough of us out there that have had enough. Dads, I’m telling you get involved, and the bullying trend. monitor what your kids do on social media, I am a big proponent of watching what your kids do on the internet, big big proponent. I let my kids know, they know, they know I’m looking what they do, what their text messages look like. We have caught inappropriate text messages to my son from other kids before. But you know, bullying type text messages, very mean, mess messages for kids that should not have a mean an ounce of meanness in them. How does that happen? How did these kids get to that point at such a young age? So we intervened and told us eventually it continued, you know, we told them to tell the kids to stop. It eventually continued. So we eventually cut off all contact with those kids. We made them blocked the number and he’s no longer talking to those kids. They don’t go to the same schools him so it’s not that difficult to control that conversation. But if you don’t know this is happening. Then you have no idea what you need to do. You got to monitor your kids activities, monitor their moods, does it mood change? Do they have sudden sudden mood changes? Because something is going on? Talk to them. Talk to your kids, dads, talk to your kids. How’s your day? Good. Now force them to elaborate. I always force my kids to elaborate. Hey, what did you do? How’s recess? What did you eat for lunch? What How did sign? How was science class? How was camp today? What did you do in camp today? How did you perform in camp tonight, both of my kids are in their respective athletic camps this month. So my daughter will come home and spend an hour telling me what she did in camp. My son will come home and say camp was great. And that’s it. So I forced him to tell me more. You can’t possibly know what’s going on. If you’re not having conversations with your kids on a routine, regular basis. Don’t make the mistakes of our past parents, either not being involved, or thinking you know, it’s really easy. And I’ll be totally honest with you dads, with my son. I I catch myself saying no, he needs to be tougher. No, he doesn’t. He needs to see the right way to treat people. That’s being tough. That’s that’s being tough dads.
I catch myself doing this all the time. Or if he’s upset about something and he starts crying.
It’s okay to cry. We cry as men, we just don’t admit it. He needs to know it’s okay. It’s okay to cry for the right reasons. And when you’re in it, you can’t cry because I told you to put the police station down. But you can cry if something hurts, physically or emotionally. It’s okay. And in my brain, my brain first thought is, oh, this kid needs to toughen up. And I’m like, no, wait a minute. We need to change the behavior dads. We’re the ones right now. I give our generation credit. I think our generation and I’m talking about Generation X and millennials, for the most part here. I think we’ve done a good job of being more involved dads, I think the previous generation did not and I’m don’t mean to, to talk negatively about any generation. I believe all generations have their pros and cons. But I think the my father’s generation were not as a whole. There were a lot of dads that were not involved. Whether they were they may have lived in the same house, but they did not get involved with raising the children and nurturing the children. Or they didn’t live in the same house divorce rates skyrocketed, and they just took off and weren’t involved in their children’s lives. I think Generation X and down has done a tremendous job of turning that tide. Now let’s turn this tide. Now let’s say bullying is not okay. It’s time To end the trend of bullying. Okay, I’m gonna get off my soapbox for now on I’m sure that and once people hear this, some of you will probably take issue with it. You know, feel free to leave comments and I’ll address the comments as I see them. But I really hope that when you take this in what I’m saying, and we put it into this bullying, because it’s easier to bully children now than it was when I was a kid. And when I was a kid, you had to be done face to face, not anymore, gets done on social media and text messaging, and all these other platforms. So let’s end the trend. Alright, that was definitely an emotional episode. You know, I’ll try to do some lighter, lighter, themed episodes as we go forward. But I felt it was something that needed to be addressed.
