Take the Quiz

Question 1: Why do you think that Josh was surprised that Brick was so nice to him?

A) Brick bullies a lot of kids.

Yup, and I have a feeling that Josh may have been bullied when he was younger.

B) Josh and Brick had never been friends.

I agree. Why else?

C) He didn’t think Brick knew his name.

Maybe…but what might be a better answer?

Question 2: Why do you think most kids are scared of Brick?

A) He’s pretty big and mean.

I agree. Why else?

B) He has a couple of thugs for friends.

Right. Kids who bully often have a group of friends that tag along. Brick probably wouldn’t be as scary without his group backing him up.

C) Because he’s good at sports.

Not really. Josh is good at sports and no one is afraid of him.

Question 3: Are kids who bully always bigger than other kids?

A) Yes.

Well…often boys who bully are bigger or stronger than other kids, but this isn’t ALWAYS true. Just look at Koz (Brick and Snoog’s buddy). He bullies Milton and he’s much smaller than most of the other kids.

B) No.

Right. Often boys who bully are bigger or stronger than other kids, but this isn’t ALWAYS true. Just look at Koz (Brick and Snoog’s buddy). He bullies Milton and he’s much smaller than most of the other kids.
