Reese Witherspoon's bullied kids

Reese Witherspoon wants her children to be bullied at school.

The 'Legally Blonde' actress - who has two children, eight-year-old Ava and Deacon, four, from her marriage to Ryan Philippe - says being teased in school helps build character.

She said: "I wouldn't want my children to miss out on any of that teasing and bullying - don't you think it kind of makes you who you are? This drives me crazy about today. Everyone wins the award and then, you know, everybody is a Most Valuable Player (MVP)? No! They're not! OK?

"I distinctly recall the two weeks of crying because I didn't make the softball team. It made me interesting. Hopefully, it helps kids really understand who they are. You know, figure out who they are."

Reese, who is rumoured to be dating her 'Rendition' co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, also revealed she is planning to spend Valentine's Day (14.02.08) with her children.

She added to US TV show 'Good Morning America': "I've got to run to the arts and crafts store because I have to make Valentine's Day cards and boxes. It's too fun. It's like having a second childhood. You get to go and do it all over again!"
