My granddaughter was taught a very effective way to stop the bullies of any age. Call her a brat and her hand goes on her hip and she replies’I certainly hope so, I work at it’ . Told she was weird she replied that was a great compliment. It meant that she was an original. She is very bright and came up with many clever answers to any and all insults. It truly was a water off the ducks back approach to bullies. This can be taught to all kids. They don’t have to internalize nastiness directed at them. It leads to a very deep respect for the kid from all concerned. It also helps to give your girls some martial arts training.
