You know what's even more damaging to a kid than being bullied? Having his mommy sue for an injunction to stop the bully.
Bullying is a natural part of growing up. Kids learn where they stand in life's pecking order, the victims learn coping mechanisms, and the perpetrators learn where the boundaries are. Without school-age bullying, grownups won't learn how to stand up to assholes, and assholes won't learn that when to back down before someone snaps and punches them in the face.
