Stan Davis’ Advice for Youth

I don’t use the word “bullying” much anymore because the word has too many different meanings. Also, when we use the word “bullying” we often think of the word “bully.” All people do mean things sometimes and kind things sometimes, and after all these years I can’t figure out how to tell that one person is a “bully” and another person is not. I can’t see how it helps to call someone a bully, any more than it helps to call someone weak or clumsy.
