Absolutely not! Instead, teach your children how to get medievel on those bullies’ buttocks. If it is a group of them just focus on the leader and take him or her down. Once you do that the problem disappears for the most part.
Amen to that!
That is incredibly naive. Bullies usually travel in a cliche, and attack loners. Your advice is like telling an injured Zebra, “just fight back against that pack of Jackals.”
Amen again Brother! I was getting picked on pretty good in the fifth grade. I told my pap I did not want to go to school and why. He said it was pretty simple. I could either whip their collective asses or whip him. The choice was mine. Three got their asses stomped and they call me Mr. till this day. Never... never had another problem.
I’ve got girls and boys and either gender will get after a body hot enough to make their teeth sweat. You have to take care and protect you and yours first.
I have not heard an explanation... most likely there is a good one though... where were the girls parents when all this was happening. And for that matter... her sister?? They did not know what she was going through?
When I arrived in the South from my NY birthplace I was a 6 year old, knobby kneed little black girl with a funny Brooklyn accent. Mine was one of the few black families in the neighborhood. In NY no one ever picked on me because I was a tiny little runt, but I learned to fight here in Virginia. I got called blackie, the n-word and all types of names. It took about 6 months and about 10 fights for the bullies to figure out they shouldn’t mess with this little kid (me) because I was crazy. I even had to fight a girl who showed up with a cut off broomstick and her mom to support her. Kicked her butt too. After that I made friends and had no problems.
I agree with you 100%!!! And if it continued, I would get medievel on the parents!!!!
