When I answer questions of a personal/emotional nature, readers often get in touch with their own thoughts. So, we now have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday (with the question asker's permission) we open up a question to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I'll post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.
So, if you'd like to join in, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 200 words, to before Thursday 3rd March.

"I have a friend who I am worried for. He is really short and gets picked on a lot and he takes his anger out by bullying other people. The other day he got mad for someone sitting in his seat and he threw his milk at him, (a closed carton) and he keeps being a jerk to some of my other friends. He really doesn't know how to handle situations where he is bullied and always does the wrong thing and gets in trouble. I want to help him but I don't know how to tell him he isn't doing the right thing, he grew up being bullied and still is and it's just so hard and I want to help. Thank you. Timothy"

Look forward to seeing your replies.
