Having children myself now I would say that my biggest regret was sending any kid that I bullied home to their parents to see them upset. I know how helpless you feel sometimes as a parent when kids are being mean to your children.

Everytime I got in a fight at school it would make my reputation even worse with the teachers and I would never get a break if I got into trouble. When you are labeled a trouble maker you tend to get into more trouble over the years and that caused a lot of detention and getting grounded. Those are my biggest regrets.

I regret making other kids cry.I was the biggest jerk in elementary school because of my older brothers tortured me. I would have known how to bully someone if I wasn't bullied myself.I used to slap kids in the back and if they said anything I would push them down and make them cry and think I was going to hurt them. It made me feel better because I was in control versus at home where I was dominated. I wish I had a mentor that could have talked me through it so I didnt have to take it out on other kids.

Finding out that you can lose a lot of friendships over fighting. It alomost rarely solves the problem that you have and most often causes many more problems.

This is the root of the problem in bullying! If we could some how fix this we would be off to a great start.

Regret means that you are sorry and you wish you could go back and change what you have done. We all know that going back in time is impossible so the best way to right your wrongs is by moving forward. Try to make changes to the way things are going now and in the future hopefully your positive impact will help you lose that regret.

I was never bullied but I regret not sticking up for the kids that I did see being bullied. I would just look away and act like it wasnt happening and I should have done the right thing and said something.
