-A bully changes. Summarized from a Success Report in the Field of Education, p36 of Bruno Gröning Circle of Friends Schooling Letter, Spring, 2019.

From August 2014, the 8 year old boy who was strong and tall and who had come to Germany from Nigeria with his family, stood out from others due to his behavior. He was insolent, didn't respect other children or adults and liked to provoke them. When this created disputes he often hit them, not showing any remorse.or.compassion. He enjoyed seeing others fall down and be hurt as they often played soccer. When he would became angry his gaze turned cold, hard and dark. He was unreasonable and always blamed others when he was approached about his behavior. At one time he kicked a child, threatened him violently and went for his throat.

Guenther Hobelmann tried to apply that which was learned in educational training. He was a caregiver at the school where this bully was and who also was a Bruno Gröning follower. He noted that there was a lot of tension in the family and decided to take in the Heilstrom for the boy. He states that about two weeks later he noticed that something had changed, both in him and the boy.

I remember that at the beginning of December 2016, I finally managed to give the boy completely to Bruno Gröning,."Please Bruno, you help". Soon after that, the boy's behavior normalized. He was more relaxed and played peacefully with other children. Something within him had been turned around.

In August 2017, the boy went to secondary school and fit well into the new class and continues to behave well.

Educator's commentary:."...the change from a scornful, cold bully to a peaceful, friendly boy is inexplicable."....Marita Lanfer, teacher.

-Another story.
A sad ending.as a result of bullying:

"I am reading with much interest your thoughts on bullies. I have never been a bully, but have protected a few from being bullied at school as I was growing up.

"I came to Australia from Ireland at the age of eight and was the butt of many jokes when I first started school. But I knew how to look after myself and, having three brothers helped!

"I believe some people think simplistically about being bullied and think it is just a bit of harmless teasing on the playground. Obviously, it is not. It can make people feel very alone and isolated, and, in the case of one of my family members, can lead to suicide. 

"Although I was born in Ireland, my mother was Australian and when we came out here we went to visit one of her aunts.

"Aunty Irene lived in a big rambling home in the hills, with loads of nooks and crannies for us kids to discover. 

"I remember vividly slowly opening a door, only to have it slammed back in my face. I tried it again and the same thing happened. When I asked my auntie who was in there, she said it was her son and that he didn't like talking to people. 

"A few weeks later we learned that he had committed suicide, hanged himself in his bedroom. It was very sad and I remember that my aunty never really got over it. I also learned that he had been relentlessly bullied at school, emotionally and physically, for years. 

"I will always remember that day. I could practically feel his pain through the door. Years later, I met some of the people who had bullied him and they were tormented by the fact that he had taken his life.

"There are no winners when it comes to bullying and I think parents have to take the issue seriously. And, at the same time, help their kids to deal with it themselves and make their own decisions. There is nothing worse than an interfering parent, which can at times exacerbate the situation." ...Annette B. as reported on robertringer.com
