Thank you very much for sharing your experience. I think it is important for parents to read about these situations and how the child being victimized feels. Sibling rivalry, or "kids being kids" should never include violence and must be addressed immediately by the parent and/or a behavior health specialist when necessary. It is never okay for one child to beat on another-period. I am so sorry you had to be put through that and I admire your courage for speaking out.
