Adult Bullying is not Acceptable Behavior

Bullying is not just for kids. Apparently, it's still a thing Adults like to do. I received an annoymous letter in the mail today from someone who was too scared to sign their name or put a return address. It was signed "Your Neighbors". This Bully decided they were too little of a person to say they wrote it all on their own, and that it had to come from others also, which I doubt. 

This Bully not only belittled me as a parent, but talked very badly about my youngest, 6 years old. Do adults not have better things to do than to make themselves feel better by making others feel bad?

I'm not going to get into the details of the letter. If this neighbor actually knows me, they follow me and will read this. Hopefully, it'll open their eyes as to what a tiny tiny person they are to not be able to say something adult to adult.

I don't care who you are, bullying someone is not the answer. Saying rude, mean, and hurtful things to someone or about someone, is not the way to make an impact.  Lastly, you have no idea what's going on behind any scenes of what you see. If I gave you back an earful of everything you mentioned in this letter, you would be running with your tail between your legs.

Sincerely,

"Your Neighbor" Donna
