I see friends slap friends hard across the neck as a greeting. Girls punching boys in the arm as hard as they can. Boys knocking fists until their knuckles bleed. Boys punching walls and desks. One boy broke his hand twice in a week and now broke his cast off. One boy was suspended for getting paid to staple the skin on his arm. I have a group of 5 girls (got to love my 2nd hour) that are verbally abusive to each other and now they have started in on me. They hurt each other as much as possible by saying mean thing to each other, cutting each other out of activities and parties. Girls that share boyfriends while saying nasty things about each other. Nasty things written on desks and lots of pushing and shoving. Boys that touch each other and say they are "butt buddies." Kids that take anything they can apart, like the lab stools and the computer mice. I patrol the classroom constantly just to keep things intact and in good shape. One boy as he walks to his seat will casually put the A/C on and freeze out the class. Other kids pick up any pens or pencils I have out on my desk. I have to hide everything I use. Kids "pranking" each other constantly. Wallets, iPods and phones disappear just to reappear after the owner has a fit. When parents say their kids are being bullied, they have no idea what goes on during the day. It's not just being called names, it's having nasty things written on your desk, it's being hit and pushed all day long, it's having your homework and classwork taken by the kids next to you and not being able to say no because if you say no the problems escalate. It's your wallet disappearing only to reappear back in your backpack minus your money. It's the big kid in your class helping you eat your lunch every day. It's the girls talking about what you look like when you change in gym class or asking you in class loudly if you got your period yet. Sigh..
