Don't stand up for yourself, don't defend yourself, don't help anyone else, etc...

Kids (and all of us) are being taught to be victims by our schools / government / employers. Everytime there's a school / college / workplace shooting, 90% of the kids / people just huddle into passive, easy to shoot groups. People should be taught to be like the Flight 93 passengers and stand up for what's right, physically if necessary.

Just a couple weeks ago my neice was on the play ground and a group of boy started picking on her and threw her to the ground. She is a black belt and not aggressive at all. She kicked one in the stomach and punched the other in the nose and ran off as soon as she was able to a teacher. She put into inschool suspension for a week and nothing happened to the boys.

The following week one of the boys grabbed her arm to again throw her down in the class room and when she pulled her arm away from him she hit the teacher in the nose. She had no clue the teacher was there but again was suspended and nothing happened to the boy.

She is now out of that school.

Just another reason not to reproduce. If I had a child and he or she killed them self from being bullied, I believe I would not get a moments rest until the responsible party payed dearly.

Then again, if I had a child that was being bullied, I would do everything I could to bolster the kid's confidence and courage for self-defense.

Terribly sad.

I am a dork, and started the first 5 years of school stuttering like "The Water Boy" so I got picked on a lot in school. Nothing ever worked to stop it until I stopped caring about what people thought. Not everyone's kid can kick ass (certainly not me,) and the bullshit will just continue after teachers, principals, the authorities turn their backs.

It made high school super fun for me once I didn't give a shit.

hurray for you. you've found one of the great secrets to happiness and security. everyone else is paralized with fear about what others might think.

nevertheless, the 9 year old story is horrific. someone likely messed over they little guys mind. no one deserves to be made that desperate.

I wonder what he was sent to the office for.... that may have a bit to do with it.

I remember getting my first "referral" in grade school, and it was traumatic for me.

the suicide story is completely heart grabbing. kids these days are gutless and don't care what happens to the other kids they pick on. i remember awhile back a girl killed herself over a myspace bully that picked on her constantly. words can hurt more then throwing punches because it messes with your mind...
I am 6'6' normally. on that day I had my reactor boots on which makes me over 7' tall the kids dad was maybe 5'9"+/-. the point to that story is that behavior like that at that age is either taught or the kid is allowed to act feral. it's complete bullshit and I cannot stand it so when shit like that happens.

I have seen plenty of parents who don't care what their kids do.

when my daughter was 2 we were playing on the structures at the park. I turned for a second and a 7 year old boy punched her. I reached in the tube and ripped that kid out of the play structure by the hair and demanded he tell me where his parents were. with my kid in one hand and him by his hair we found his parents. I asked where he learned to hit a 2 year old and is that what you teach him at home. the parents insisted no. I demanded the brat appologize to my daughter. he refused. the parents said they couldn't make him. I bent down to the boy and told him that if he didn't give my daughter an apology I was going to pound his father into the ground and would not stop until I felt I got retribution of your actions. he began crying... i said "kid, say goodbye to your dad as you know him" I set my kid on the playset behind me and grabbed the dad who immediately began crying. I said "now you see how much of a failure as a parent you are. Discipline and consequence needs to be taught" the kid started screaming I'm sorry, over and over again. I picked up my daughter and we went to the swings.

LOL. I got into plenty of altercations with parents when my girl was small. preppie parents, white trash, sand fleas, they're all the same. not so much now as I have pushed her to stand up for herself and explained that if someone is pushing you, teasing you beat the piss out of them and let dad deal with the aftermath as you have the right to be safe and protect yourself.

I am not going to lie, I have a pretty short fuse and if idiocy is pushing the button it burns quick resulting in a huge blowup and scared people on the receiving end. If my cart gets rammed by a rude asshole at the grocery store I will loudly confront the person. IDK who the fukc you think you are but if you're not going to show any respect or decency toward me or my family I will return the favor and I guarantee I won't be very nice.
