My older son, who's in the third grade, recently told me that one of his classmates threw him down on the grass during recess. I said, "One of the bigger kids, right?" He said, "No, actually he's smaller than me." He leveled his hand to his own chin. "About this tall." "And he threw you down?" I replied. Well, you get the drift. I don't know if I'd classify his classmate as a bully, more likely he's just a rambunctious friend, but it concerns me when kids are tossing each . . .
