    A kid at school called my daughter a "Hobo Witness". I had never heard that one.

    As some of you already know, I'm fading and the wifey is NOT awake very asleep, but the kids are in the middle. Anyway, my daughter was bothered by his name calling- and on one hand I wanted to go down there and tear his little puny head off for calling my daughter names, but on the other hand I wanted to laugh...Is that bad?

    I think the child may have said or intended to say, Hovo Witness". That has been my experience.

    So what is the difference for being called names ...do you not think children will find any excuse for name calling? Its that JW persecution coming out again.

    Some neighbor kid called my younger Sister a Jehovah's Sh*tness one time and my Mom marched over to his house and read he and his mother the riot act which was more embarrassing than the name calling was.

    The neighbor kids used to call my Brother Jim , Jimmy Jehovah and they called me Richie Religious. Luckily we thought it was funny so it wasn't an issue.

    Probably best to help your daughter see the humor in it....that takes all the power out of the intended hurt but I'd definitly keep an eye on that kid if I were you.

    I think it's funny.

    I'd help her see the funny side out of it. Laughing at a bully's nicknames can take the nastiness out of it. It might stop the bullying. Not that it's really bad bullying. It could be a lot worse.
