I Had A Bully For A Teacher And She Nearly Destroyed Me

My daughter Pihu's first day at a nearby day care centre was a disaster. The teacher could not handle her crying, my number was not reachable and by the time I arrived, the clueless teacher shouted at her. My girl fell into my arms, crying. "I want to go home," she said between sobs. This incident took me back to the time when I was a timid 8-year-old girl who'd get bullied almost every day and was once mercilessly battered by a teacher in primary school.
