Bullying is serious. It is especially more serious in this day and age due to the internet and social media sites.

What kind of advice do you give as a Mother and/or Step Mom?

My SDs and my "bonus" SD (BSD=their Stepsister) came to my house. SD1 said "This girl called me fugly". My BSD said "They said I was fat and ugly". My first reaction was: "There will always be people who don't like you but, pay no mind to them. I have heard stuff like that before". They then said "but you are pretty".

That REALLY shocked me. They don't view themselves as pretty? They are lovely little ladies.The tween/teen years are so hard for girls. You want to hug them and protect them from evil/jealous people but,  how will they learn? They have a lifetime of that they need to be prepared for!

My other worry is this forms a backlash. They then make fun of others to make themselves feel better. That is not good either, I try to explain. Now they are the bullies and the unhealthy cycle begins.
