While I have always been aware that children are more than just tiny adults, I have always valued my children and respected them as much as I respect other adults. But I have often noticed that many adults do not treat children in a way that they would treat other adults. Many adults bully children - usually without even thinking about it - simply because the adults feel that they have a right to say what they please to children.
This tendency is one of the core types of bullying that I see happen to my children.
