    Me too, clearly someone must be troubled at home if they bully others. Or they're driven members of the Dark Four clearly destined for success at the very top... or prison.

    Some bullies are losers who do it to make themselves feel superior. Others are just jerks who do it because they can.

    I mean, there are sadistic bullies, insecure bullies, arrogant bullies... ect they all have their own reasons, maybe sometimes it is stress from parents, I wouldn't know.

    Hmm good point, I think it is mostly the result of some horrific emotional trauma or they were born differently.

    So should parents of bullies have charges pressed against them?

    Because it feels sooo good to have power over someone. To be honest, a parent could be very docile, and the child could still end up being a bully, except now the parent won't have the courage (balls?) to teach their kid a lesson.

    But isn't it usually the opposite? They are bullied by parents and then pass this on by bullying their classmates
