re: Friend's kid got punched at school: WWYD?


quote:

Friend of mine has a kid that has been getting picked on at school. Has been threatened by other kids that they were going to kill him in the past. Sheriffs office was called and that person arrested.

Today, he entered the gym and got sucker punched In the side of the head, fell down and landed on his hand and possibly broke it.

What would you do if this were your kid?

School doesn't want to deal with it.

Does this guy need to lawyer up and sue for medical costs etc? This isn't the first incident.


If this is 100% true, there is so much wrong with this its not even funny. When I was in grade school 16 years ago, if you got into a fight at school, everybody went to jail. With all the emphasis put on bullying right now, I can't believe the principal would ignore this.

Since our PC, pussified modern society has made standing up for yourself wrong, you have to follow the rules. If this kid got hit at school and there was no consequence for the kid that did the hitting, I'd lawyer up and go straight to the school board. That principal deserves to lose his/her job.

But even more than this, I'm proud that instead of being a bully himself, he has on numerous occasions stepped in and protected the small and the weak from bullies. If more parents taught their kids the important lesson of being leaders, even as children, then bullies would not be the big issue they are today.


I hope my kids are like this.

Tell the kid that next time he sees the guy who blindsided him, to walk up and knock the piss out of him. No matter where or in front of whom. Give him a roll of nickels for lunch money that day.

I agree with you. This is why I have so a hard time believing this story is 100% true.

I'm not saying its not possible, but sounds so unlikely. A principle once suspended a girl for getting into a fight with a parent, even though the parent jumped on the girl.

Great parenting buddy. You let your kid get beat up so you can make "more money". A father of the year award is coming your way

Bully's are generally the kids that got held back and are on the lower end of the academic spectrum. One tactic I saw used on a bully when I was in school was shaming them in the classroom. Bully is called on to answer a question and if course doesn't know the answer. The kid being bullied instantly calls him out for being a dumbass, the other kids join in and the tables were turned. The bully was made the outsider.

So you don't do it at school. You do it in the hidden places. You do it behind closed doors.

And when you do, you stare past his eyes and let your rage permeate his soul. You strike so hard and so fiercely that it shakes him to his core.
And you leave no doubt that if he continues his reign of terror, there will be no safe place, no peace, no rest. That he will forever look over his shoulder for the wrath of righteous vengeance to fall upon his head.
You must become the bogeyman.

If the school won't do anything, take the issue to the school board or LA dept of education. That stuff should be stopped by the principal.

I'll take that bet any day. I think you've watched too movies, b/c that is the only place some dumb shite like this would work.

One thing about this story that's sad to me is it shows a lack of leadership in the youth of this school. My son turned 11 yesterday but one lesson I've been teaching him since he was old enough to comprehend it is that I expect him to be a leader and not a follower. By this I mean a leader knows what the right thing to do is and he does it. A leader is an example to others, not by their words alone but rather by their actions. A follower will follow others, usually right into trouble. Also, a hallmark of a leader is the way they treat those who are less than they are, those who are smaller or physically or mentally weaker than themselves. A leader treats those like this with kindness and in a helpful manner.

I'm thankful that my son's size and physical abilities in athletics has given him a reputation among his peers as someone who a bully should avoid unless he wants his arse beaten mercilessly. This means my son will never have to live the day to day horror of someone who is being bullied. But even more than this, I'm proud that instead of being a bully himself, he has on numerous occasions stepped in and protected the small and the weak from bullies.

Vader, you continually say awesome things about being a good parent.

I've said this before, and I'll say it again: Bullies are a part of the human condition. You will deal with them for your entire life. Maybe not physically, but verbally, emotionally, etc.

We teach kids that its wrong to stand up for themselves, because life is all about Fairy Dust and Unicorn Milk. Then, they graduate, go out in the real world, and realize they are ill equipped to handle it.

Bullies thrive on the perceived power they get over the ones they bully. Bullies are not sorry, they dont care if they get in trouble. Power is addictive. The only way you respond to a bully is by removing that perception of power. Sending the bully to the principals office for a stern talking to does nothing to remove that perception of power.

I bet Scot Fargas didnt frick with Ralphie or his friends anymore after Ralphie beat the piss out of him.

Thanks I really appreciate you saying that. I see my biggest responsibility in this life is to raise my children right and prepare them to be the best they can be when they grow up and go out into the world on their own. I don't care if I were to climb Mt. Everest, discover the cure for male pattern baldness, and successfully divide by zero, nothing in this life will ever come close to being considered by me as even remotely close as important as being a great father to my children and husband to their mother.

I think you're confusing the end of Karate Kid with real life. In real life, the Cobra Kai with Johnny first in line would have continued to gang up and beat the ever living shite out of Daniel...All-Valley Trophy or not.

All it will take is the kid to cowboy up and fight back one time. Doesn't matter if he gets his arse beaten. Bullies are all alike, they only frick with those they think are too afraid to fight back. The possibility, however remote, that they may get their own arse whipped or at the very least absorb a few licks to the head is enough to keep them at bay. I have taught my children that they aren't to harass younger/weaker kids but at the same time not take shite from anyone because if you ever let someone get their bluff in on you, then you will be taking shite from that person from then on. Just go ahead and nip it in the bud.

But if there are medical costs associated with this kid's hand and there has been issues before with regard to bullying that the school refused to address, then yeah, they would be paying for it one way or the other. The principal sure sounds like a pussy.

This was younger kids like 5th grade and all the kids he was bullying started making fun of him and he was outnumbered and his power was taken away. Probably wouldn't work in high school you would still have to throw hands.
