I was bullied when I was in grade school and middle school. I was tall and skinny, and I wore glasses. For these and other reasons, I was frequently harassed and intimidated.

We’ve all seen it — the emotional build-up, the red crumpling face, the outburst of crying, screaming or worse. A child’s angry explosion may leave parents feeling overwhelmed and ill-equipped to handle it — or to bridle their own frustration.
The grandmother and great-aunt of an Oklahoma preschooler have been arrested after their four-year-old charge turned up in class smelling of marijuana and apparently high from the drug, police said on Monday.
