We had more good discussions after viewing Dealing with Bullies at Olita Elementary. Apropos of the discussions we had last week at Macy Elementary, a boy came up and told the group about how he has been repeatedly bullied while playing games on Xbox Live. The principal later told us the father was a big gamer and and it is through his account that the boy gets access to both the service and to games rated teen and mature. He plays both together with his dad and by himself and it is when he plays alone that he gets bullied, particularly when he plays much older opponents. These older guys don’t seem to like losing to a kid!
