parents do need to teach that. and they also need to drop the crap in schools where a kid isnt allowed to deffend himself. the kid shouldnt have been treated any differnetly than anyone else. he should have been taught to make a stand, and the teachers should have let him do it. the faculty should have turned a blind eye to the small one taking one or two of them down, let him establish himself, then let him know how far he is allowed to go. i used to be there. i was once picked on like that. i beat the heck outta some kids for my 7th grade. spent some time in detention. no one picked on me from then on. people need to get over thinking that school is about feeling good. its about finding yourself. and if we keep holding kids hands when they should be growing up, they wont be able to cope, and then things like suicide happen. kids are as cruel as they can be to each other. grown men happen to operate the same way, only globally. you gotta let your kid make a stand.
