I hope the bully does not immediately pull the racism card...
Good job! Kid needs a reward after that.
Not a card to pull there.
Good on him! Wish I had that kind of courage when I was bullied
Congrats! Crazy follow-up suggestion: you and your son talk with the bully about his life. Might be an opportunity to help a lad in need?
So do the parents I reckon. Bloody stressful this parenting thing.
Good on him. Taught my daughters they are allowed to defend themselves always. But end it it quick (nose, throat, crotch) and get away
Don't most have a zero tolerance policy that results in both parties being suspended regardless of fault nowadays?
Your son has now taken on the mantle of" protector of all who are bullied". Heavy weight to carry.
Yeah I am genuinely all for that. The other kids family may not be so keen.
Congrats! Schools are big, i get it but we just had a major school shooting not to long ago while bullying was a factor in the incident.
Depends on the country. Op doesn’t sound American .
I think the fact my young bloke went backwards and was pushed and pushed until there was no option took care of that. Plus our other complai
This! This is how we move forward in society!
Nts were on file. Then the students accounts. Pretty strong case.
Does he want pizza and ice cream? Cause this is how you get pizza and ice cream!
This makes me feel good
Heavy is the head that the crown sits upon Hey? Good point. Also, I'll sleep with one eye open in case the cub tried to take the lion.
Good for him
But did he kick him in the dick?
Haha , hope all goes well for you guys.
Good for him! Hope that nasty little shit learned a lesson.
Happy f’n days indeed. Congrats @op
Good suggestion. A lot of the time this tends to be a case of shit flowing downhill. Most bully kids are having it rough somewhere as well.
Jesus Christ some follow up adult shit right here. DUDE YOU ARE ENLIGHTENED CAT AND THAT WHAT I LIKE ABOUT YOU
I'm surprised they listened to reason. Standard practice seems to be, wait for victim to fight back & then punish both bully & victim.
That family may be the source of the problem
I'm assuming you're not in the states then, most US schools suspend both parties regardless of the context, it's really stupid
Glad the school handled it well. They usually cover their ass by suspending both parties and don't want to know the details.
Hooray for good parenting! Kids that can’t do this and just deal with shit are the ones who go all Columbine
Huh. In the US, he would have been suspended and nothing would have happened to the bully.
Unless said bully is trans-racial.
This policy is redundant, one kid doesnt care, other kid dont want to be in trouble but gets in trouble for standing up.....school shooting?
Speaking from experience, your son will have so much more confidence for the rest of his life. He also learned that hitting is the last...
His reward is gonna be self-confidence and the respect of those other kids at school. Plus maybe the bully’s lunch money
...resort. Excellent job @OP. Parenting perfected.
In America your kid would have been suspended and you could be sued.
Stressful, but you’re doing it right
Your son is a very brave teacher
Give that boy some ice cream.
IMHO it's the same as the collective punishment used in many classrooms. Bobby tables being whiny in the back? Extra homework for everyone!
Suspension is a punishment for both the students and the parents. The students because they have to make up the work and the parents because
they now have to take care of them outside normal times that they have planned for assuming they don't just leave them home alone.
Niiiice. I bet he doesn't get bullied again by that kid. Or, if he does, it won't be until quite a while from now. At that point, repeat.
I tell my son bring on the suspension and the lawsuit. More times than not the school system itself is the bigger bully than the kid bully.
You’re on the right track mate. Good on ya.
Hated that one as well. We have to many rules applying band-aids thinking it will fix the problem. New rules cause more problems.
May I suggest going for a round of paintball together? Get messy, fire at each other, it may sting a bit but it'll all be good-natured.
And enroll your boy in a defense class.
My boy stood up for a smaller boy against a bully, I took him home, got him an ice cream cake
They might be more open if you suggest the possibility of not pursuing charges of assault against their child. If not, get them.
You should see if he's interested in learning martial arts or some sort of training sport, it builds confidence and helps him learn other
Ways of defending himself too! It's also a great outlet for stress, even if he doesn't need to defend himself again to the bully it's great
To have skills like that, especially if they give him exercise!
Baskin Robbins sounds good
Get him some ice cream. Kids love ice cream.
Good on him. THIS is how you take care of bullying.
Take your kid out for a steak
That’s the only way to learn
That is awesome! I'm happy for your kid!
My son was harassed by a smaller kid...nothing done. Taught him never to hit. Little shit pinned him behind a door. He swung out to...
Defend himself and broke the little shit’s finger...who had a water park trip planned. My son got ice cream.
Some kids are just assholes. We don’t need to reach out to everyone that victimized our kids.
The fact that you're saying bloke says to me that this isn't in the US and thus would explain the lack of idiotic zero tolerance policies.
School being too big and got “enough to do” shows the priority of the school and is a horrible excuse not to handle it!
but seriously, reward your boy. he should know that standing up for himself is good.
They apologized? I'm glad to hear they took your side. I remember getting suspended for standing up for myself when in was in school.
u get that kid a beer now!!!
That's amazing, OP. I'm proud of you and your kid
I like this.
He used bloody in a sentence, sorry i really liked this
This, I befriended a bully in high school. Turns out his parents bullied him. He stopped being a dick once he met my friends.
Does it really need to go to that to get the schools attention? Im glad it ended well but no parent and child should have to put up w/ that
Defence against the dark arts?
The school does as well. Too often they side with the bully. Good on them for not disciplining your son
Cousin did the same thing here in the states, spent three weeks in an alternative school for standing up for himself. Hate that shit
Problem is it doesn't do anything to work. There's no extra incentive not to bully, only incentive to not stand up for yourself
This is definitely not in America lol
Go buy that "Man" a beer !! Nice job Dad....
Get that boy some ice cream!
Fantastic OP, glad ur boy is growing strong. On that note: I’ve always heard violence is never the answer/real men use their words, (1/2)
I don't think you can take kids to a tittie bar! Unless the mom's on stage!
you should sign him up for a martial art, he will learn both self defence and self discipline.
Etcetera...Are all those saying relative? Is there a right way to go about situations like this? (2/2)
was this in the US ? I was in a similar situation except I got suspended aswell...
This didn’t happen in America did it
I’m confused. What you’re saying is given physical evidence the school did the right thing? Normal a video isn’t enough to prove bullying.
My gf in school was being harassed by a guy she refused to leave me for, I body slammed him on the cement after he hit me when I wasn't
Looking. My dad came home, told me to break they're nose next time then bought pizza for dinner l lol
Here in the states, yeah. S'bunch of fucking bullshit.
I'd teach the kid to not give zero fucks about people that treat him like shit. Dont worry, folks. I dont have kids.
Get your boy a treat for doing it right and only fighting back. Not starting
Congrats! My daughter just solved her bully issue last week as well and I've never seen her happier. It has weighed on her so long...
Good parenting, great kid. Good for the school to recognize and admit.
You live in the USess of As, right?
This is horrible and such an american way of thinking. Fight fire with fire... stand up for yourself..
Wait, whose parents? The TL:DR saying son kinda made me think he was your kid.
Well, I bet, my kid could kick your kid's ass
I imagine that here in the States but I don't think @op is here. That or his kid probably got made fun of for calling people "bloke" j/k op.
He got lucky. My middle school would have suspended both kids because "it takes two to tango".
Amazing they apologized, my daughter took two bullies on at once, got suspended. Parent called to apologize. Good parenting lad!
* This is appropriate and such an american way of thinking. Fight fire with fire... stand up for yourself.. >>
Get that little mavka a cookie
I'm glad that as a parent you waited till it got to that situation and wrote off them not doing anything as "oh they are busy".
A boy who can defend himself is happier and confident. A good dad will make sure he doesn't become a bully himself. We aren't talking about>
Jordan Peterson did a video on that. How the schools seem to think they can talk everything out; like the bully won't just wait after school
FUCK THAT! No mercy! Show no weakness! Long story if anyone cares to hear it.
deadly force. It is good medicine for a bully to nurse a bloody nose or show off a black eye for a week or so.
@op wait what? Your son didn't get in trouble at all? What reality is this?
Good stuff dude!
Hate to be that guy but sue the school and you won't have to worry about the rising cost if college education.
when I was bullied they did nothing until i fought back then only punished me.
Let me guess, you're not in the US?
That's awesome! Wouldn't go like that here in the States, they'd make them both get in trouble. It's dumb as hell
I like trolls, you can do better
yeah, but that only works if the student and parents both care about work. If the kid doesn't give a shit, it's just a day off school
Good on him.
If they don’t do it like that there are lawsuits unfortunately. Schools are starved enough without that issue.
Nice. If this happens again, let him bring a knife to school. If that doesn't work, a chainsaw will.
Dunno why you're getting downvoted. snopes.com/fact-check/emma-gonzalez-shooter-bullying/
True. I fucking hate how lawsuit happy people are now.
If my school suspended me for defending myself, I'd probably waltz right in the door with the smuggest look on my face.
He already has a kid to raise and teach. People don't have that much free time to raise someone else kid that has parents to teach them.
I've always put hitting as the second resort, with screaming loudly as the first. Kind words are for hippies and idealists.
‘Violence is never the answer’ is bullshit. Almost never is more accurate
Not hanging out with the violent/angry kid is completely different than bullying them.
Either way, I am glad your child stood up. My parents were damn fatalist pacifists. Parents even defended the bully. Was fucked up
I want to believe
I wish more people would realise this
Well dang, looks like you and your son solved the bullying problem!
That sounds familiar. "He wasn't following the conflict resolution strategies we outline per school policy."
Huh. My high school would have expelled them both.
I got lucky, somehow I avoided getting punished in two different schools for beating the snot out of my bullies. Wish I could say how.
This might have already been said, don’t come up with an excuse. Big school or not, any excuse is not right or fair. Congratulations though!
It's become a culture. It used to be "You wanna fight?" now it's "I'll fucking sue you!" and worse yet, courts are all too happy to have->
It is a deep and complex psychology, that of the bully.
frivolous lawsuits loading up their already heavy case loads.
I hear that guy is awful himself, though.
Parenting done right. Don’t raise a beta.
"Oh no, we're legally responsible for fights! WE NEED TO STEP IN TO SAVE OUR ASSES! Oh... and the kids too I guess."
Probably because that shit doesn't fucking work.
Tell him I said good job! Don't be the first one to strike, but defend yourself should the need arise. Congrats little dude!
Yeah...this is the reason why don't believe this happened.
CCTV in schools is a MUST these days. It really helps with those kinds of issues.
Sure, I got suspended for a week after punching the kid, but he quit messing with me.
Here kids are told ignore, make friends with the bully, laugh, and not escalate. It's crap. I love that it's on camera! Confidence booster!
Touch of Class!
What the hell? In my school, the victims were suspended and the bullies were given a warning. I like your ending better
Good for the school to admit that they were wrong.
It's so fuckin' stupid. Schools will hardly listen to you until you do something to grab their attention, and then they still don't stop it
Nowadays? They were doing this when I was in school 15 years ago.
Violence is never a good answer, but in my experience when all other options have been exhausted sometimes it's the only answer.
Schools never do anything. I swear if it wasn’t illegal I would kit the kid on his chin.
Or in the case of my school was to simply punish the victim for fighting back and ignore the bully.
I got suspended for 3 days for fighting a bully. principle said violence is never the answer. theres better ways. yaynah fuck off
Good work. Make sure he always knows to never start a fight.
My kid got suspended 10 days for trying to go after his bully, I told them how the kid not only bullied my son & his friends but also
Exactly. Surprise surprise, most kids don't respond strongly to reason. Know what they do tend to respond to? Pain. Good on you.
damaged his guitar costing me $85 to repair it & a teacher who witnessed it didn't do a thing. After talking to other kids & teachers they
Good on both of yous! Going through the same thing. My son even takes Jiu jitsu. He's nervous that he'll get in trouble for using it to
changed it to 5 days & let 2 of them be the weekend.
Defend himself. We say go ahead. Just don't break anything .
despite the use of terms like "bloke", "arse", and "CCTV", I could tell this didn't happen in AmeriKKKa cuz all parties involved... (1/2)
He's a strange ranger. Depends where you hear it from but I think the guy is just a little too high on his own supply.
I got "lucky", my teachers were equally lazy, I mean hesitant to punish me when I fought back.
I stood up for myself multiple times to multiple bullies, and I was the one who got suspended... Man, times sure have changed...
Had to google it it's his real face lol
would've been suspended and authorities called regardless of material facts and/or context. (2/2)
Mixed bag, his actual research is good, what he say on the internet not so much, unfortunately 90% of his fans only listen/read the latter
I choked one bully and almost dislocated the other's shoulder (two separate incidents) if I had gotten in trouble would have been worth it.
In grade school my son's primary bully was the son of a teacher & had been bullied the year before we moved there. Found out thru a scout
And he got a valuable life lesson: Don't talk shit if you have braces, makes getting popped in the teeth far less pleasant.
leader who asked how my son was coping. He even talked to the kid's mom & he still bullied him.
He gives a lot of self-help advice, which does help his demographic, but he also espouses fairly regressive political views.
Glad the school realized their mistake in the end.
ice cream would be nice too...
From experience pacifism rarely ever works against a kid with a shitty home life that has pegged you as an easy target.
In the 6th grade I had enough and bashed my bullies head into his locker. Thought mom would be mad. She bought me Mario 3.
Congrats, but please don't reward your son with tasty food, even though he did well. Rewarding with food may lead to stress eating.
I like to think the Montenegro PM's bodyguard were on the sidelines saying "push him back or he'll do it again" when trump pushed him
My school had a 'zero tolerance' policy and tried to punish me for doing something like this. My mother showed up with a lawyer and reporter
Sounds like you're in the UK. In the US, your kid would have been tackled, cuffed, and suspended or expelled. Zero tolerance bully policy.
And they wonder why kids snap.
Looking back I would have had a much easier time if I had handed out a couple dirt naps to the bullies but I hated confrontation as a kid.
Glad the school didn't do thecommon thing and suspend them both.
From what I hear it's not even that. Suspensions for both regardless of whether the bullied kid fights back, at least in the Chicago area.
I take it you're not from the states, then. But it's always nice to hear things go the right way. Good on your boy
Steak dinner and ice cream is how we roll.
It wouldn't pan out. School rules
Does your kid hear Yanny or Laurel?
Maybe throat is a bad idea if it's just a bully? Hit them too hard you could really damage them. You just want them to be hurt enough that
Even with worthless teachers who won't stand up for what is right.
Yes!!! Took me three years to knock my bully out and works every time!!! Good parenting and patience.
They leave you alone, not require an ambulance.
Better yet, buy him a paintball gun. He deserves it for laying down the law, and he will instantly become the cool kid, also hobby/sport 1/2
This clearly isnt taking place in America. Your son wouldve been expelled
Lil dude deserve a game store trip :P
it's shit, but the important thing is he fought back. if the school won't punish the bully, you've just got to do it yourself
I second this opinion, reward him with a fun activity that he wants to do.
Time to crack open a few with the boy
I see. Very well. Thank you for the input.
Get that boy some ice cream STAT!
Doesn't work this way here in America. Your kid would have been suspended the same for fighting.... which of course is total horseshit.
Why are you talking about fight club?
FWIW, never just tell school administration they need to take action. Put it in writing. Each and every time.
hell yea, good for him!
School bully attacked me without his gang, lost badly. He never bothered me again. That was back in the 50's.
Good. Criminal violence begets justifiable violence and your kid did the right thing with justifiable action.
Am i the only one that doesn't care that much about that? I do think it's stupid but in most cases the school is going to get both parents
The younger brother and his friends had bullied Nikolas Cruz but go ahead and be delusional
And then STRIP CLUB!!
if they have such policy, they should have acted on it in the first place when the bullying started.
Arguing that the other kid is the bully. If my kid got a suspension for standing up for himself I'd just let them treat it like a well
At most talk about it for future reference but anymore than that is inappropriate.
People don’t really understand that bullies are often privileged kids, not the poor friendless abused-at-home kid.
Every fucking time for like 8 years when I was bullied and I hit back only I was seen. Never the other kid. I was so done with teachers...
And then everyone clapped
So what normally happens when you bring it to the schools attention ?
Your comment makes no sense. Are you saying that standing up for yourself is an American way of thinking and is somehow bad?
This isn't in America, is it...both kids would've been punished by the school where I'm from
If the school is so big it can't deal with your kid being bullied, it is TOO FUCKING BIG and needs to be scaled down.
This is probably the best post I’ve ever seen on imgur. Good on you and good on your boy! Standing up for yourself others is always a +1
I knocked my bullys front teeth out and screamed stop.fucking with me so loud the whole school heard. Got suspended. Dad got me ice cream.
Fuck ya kick bullys in the teeth. Glad ur kiddo is ok
When I fought back, I knocked the guy out, noone ever said a word to me about it, but noone ever bullied me again, but it still haunts 1/2
Teach him to use his powers for good and consider that a job well done
Me I hurt another person. 2/2
If you have documententation contacting the school before it gets out of control and they do nothing then punish your, thats when you 1/2
Good. I know bullies are often acting on shitty lives themselves. But smash a bully and it stops. You sometimes make a friend too.
WOW. That was nothing like the way my kids' experiences went. We wound up homeschooling. Best decisions we ever made.
File a lawsuit against the school. 2/2
Hey, give the kid a pat on the back from a random internet mouse. Kay?
Tactical encounters are NOT when you want to tell the kid about strategies.
And just like that, one less shooter. Coming from a small town, I've found fights prevent gunfights.
Vacation AND putting the asshole in his place. Nice.
Nothing quite as jarring as realizing you're not as tough as your reputation. If you need a gang, you're not actually tough. Well done!
Cruz had problems at home: fathers death, mothers death, brother and his friends bullying him but for your narrative, we can ignore that.
This is a nice change
maybe find out for yourself.
No. You end the fight as quickly as is feasible. So what if you crush their windpipe they earned it.
It's funny how the school always takes action only after the one being bullied lashes out. So very frustrating and annoying.
*bloke *arse *CCTV I think Europe
Hooray for private school. I'm huge, got picked on by little twerps back in the day and one day they took it too far, got permanent damage
I like ice cream. I'll punch a kid for ice cream.
for their troubles and they got expelled, I got $200 in videogames and dog toys from my mom.
Touch of Ass!
Violence is not the answer, violence is the question. The answer is yes!
The school didn't even believe me when i told them i was being bullied by this kid until i threw a 20 pound computer at him.
GA here. Kid I knew in middle school got jumped by 3 guys. Did nothing but curl up and try to protect his face. All 4 suspended for fighting
Give that boy a hand job! Wait... high job? Fuck! High five!
Holy shit. You mean the school actually admitted it was their fault the problem escalated? This is like finding a goddamn leprechaun.
Happened to my son,he got kicked in the face by a kid (a kid who had been hitting him for a while) and so he hit back ,both were suspended
It works on the assumption that bullying is a rational action.
Yep, that's all I got in school, I fought back but never exceeded the force I required, as per how I was raised, always suspended
Right, now, His birthday when ever it comes up, YOU GET HIM THE MOST EXPENSIVE THING HE WANTS!
When I got bullied as a teenager - the school put the bully and I in a room together to talk it out - with out supervision
This is going to go a long way for him! Well done, kid and parent, of course.
TLDR: Didn't read anything in the news about your boy, but it said gun sales went up to last month.
Correct however a suspension also counts as an absence and if you get too many of those you can't pass regardless of grade. It's unlikely to
if this had been in the states you wouldn't of gotten an apology. Instead your kid would of been suspended too.
be an issue unless they already used most of their allowed absence days.
but isnt the bully also not following the conflict resolution strategies they outlined per school policy?
So did you just go off of the eyewitnesses? Or did you just believe what your kid told you? It might be implied...
Of curiosity, how would your child feel about something like this?
Zero tolerance. Zero risk for the administration. Zero justice.
Except for the part about punishing the bully. If anything, they get preferential treatment, and it's not their fault, etc.
My first good new if the day
Something similar happend to me,oddly enough when there wasn't a croud of slack jawed idiots quipping tv lines the person was reasonable.1/2
It's a fake ass story, but everyone wants it to be true so fuck reality.
What’s bullshit is when the victim fights back and only the victim gets in trouble
See, he probably just didnt realiaze that his actions had a negative impact on my self esteem, so if I just explain it hurts my feelings...
I've only ever heard of it being applied to physical fighting.
hell yeah, he's a man now
I came here to find this. The little shit kid's parents tried to say he was the victim during several interviews. No wonder he's a shit kid.
I thought this was a repost but the ending changed, so i guess it ain't! Other story had them both suspended while the dad took their kid..
Well it depends in whether @OP vets in the US or not.
And this is why school shootings happen. But good for you OP because you tried and you told your kid to kick some ass
It’s what happened to me
..to Disneyland or something. He told the school they wouldn't punish him for standing up to the bully.
2/2 We agreed we did not like each other but that we could still be civil. The idiots expected us to fight we did not to spite them.
Fuck your principal!
then fight them all
That’s usually standard for uk law In general.
Most schools in the US wont do anything about bullying. Good for your son!
same with the SIAHL refs!!!
Yeah that’s called the 80s
Great to hear. Bullies don’t stop until you hit back.
That's the truth
Ohe my gawd, you are promoting violence. /s
Teach your kid this: Always make the first hit count and aim for the nose. You bust up that nose and no one else will fuck with you.
Did you go to school in a dammed utopia?
“Violence is never the answer” is the cowards response.
Pull your kids out and put on electronic high school, they can work and go to school at the same time and be free from the wasted time in cl
That would be real social studies instead of the social engineering garbage they are putting out to accept crazy people as the norm!!
holy shit the school apologized to you and suspended the bully instead? god damn thats a miracle, congrats!
Yeah, I got in school suspension for getting sucker punched in the gut back in junior high. Next time it happened, I fought back.
"Fair enough, they are a big school with lots to do." what?! Wellbeing of a students is a top priority. If school won't see that, that //
now THIS is what I like to see. Don't let yourself be pushed around. Well done father and son.
I work in a school where we have a system where if a kid is bullied we call in a group of kids made up of the bully, a friend of the bully 1
Pull your kids out, homeschool or electronic high school... your kids will super succeed... like mine ????... you have what it takes!
My daughter was also worried about getting in trouble by the school. I told her I would take her out for ice cream.
must be kicked into the asses they wear on their shoulders. Just get a safety boots before you go to to see principal, that asses are hard.
I remember when I couldn't stand getting my friend bullied, so I entered rage mode, the bully was so scared she left school the week after
A couple of the victims friends and a couple of kids with no connections and they have to come up with solutions for how the bullied kid 2
Bullying starts and ends with the kids.
funny in my school he still would have gotten suspended for fighting, like i did
As a teacher, I don’t stand for bullying I’m sorry your kid had to put up with it. As a kid who was bullied go him!
Yup...makes America look like losers...Dems want dependent weak compliant ignorant kids for the next generation...free yourself and your fam
Sometimes violence IS the answer. Anyone says different is living in a nieve fantasy land.
My school just put both kids in detention. "It takes two to fight" was their motto, even if one of the kids didn't fight.
Is doing. 9/10 times peer pressure and a change of perspective end up making the bully the greatest ally. They are forced to analyse why 3
Home school or do electronic high school if you are chicken...
They bully them.
"Violence is never the answer." "Really? What is the question? " That is what I will say if anyone ever says that to me.
Hell yeah bro
It was a lazy attempt at resolution that is being rethought
violence is the only answer bullies respond to
Violence is never the answer though. Getting calculated revenge like planting drugs in their locker and calling the cops on...
...on them can be the better answer.
Id like to buy him a beer
Can’t say or deny anything when there’s video evidence.
Im a school teacher. 99% of administrators are shit. They expect the teachers to do it all but then take all credit.
No. The bully would sue. My nephew faced a lawsuit for defending himself against a bully. Not just that but he was fined by the school
Using your glasses as a skateboard? No problem! It's just a kid! No bully. Punching the big guy so hard in the groin he had to 1/2
Same with my son. He was suspended twice and multiple detentions because some shit wouldn't keep their hands off my autistic kid.
Do u live in America? We dont do that here
vomit? DETENTION!!!!!! 2/2
I was the smallest kid in my school, i had 1 bully because after about a week i held him against a wall by his neck infront of maybe 50 kids
Took'em to Jonny Lawerence's reopened Cobra Kai dojo, huh?
once a mean classmate pulled my ponytail and i fell and cried. i told my dad, he came raging into my class, screaming at everyone and 1
That kind of BS is more of a US issue. Judging from “arse”, I’m gonna guess this isn’t US.
File this under FICTION. Today's schools don't care which kid started the fight; both get punished.
Where is the footage?
I got suspended for swearing while being choked by my bully. Couldn't even fight back, just in trouble for swearing about it.
And 4 teachers after i gave him 3 warnings to leave me alone. Never had a problem after that. He even invited me to his bar mitzvah.
Take your kid to work day
Holy shit that’s impressive
Suspended and had to do community service. It too was all caught on camera. The bully he stayed away and never called him retarded again
Thats how you get poorly socialized kids who dont know how to deal with people in real life scenarios.
she got so scared of him i never had to deal with her mean jokes again. i am very happy i'm not an American.
I got suspended for swearing while being choked by my bully. I wasn't even fighting back, just swearing.
I was bullied....then i changed school, later i found my old bully again, i beat him up so bad he could barely stand up afterwards,felt nice
That was what my parents told me when I went to school. Help yourself when there's no one will do.
Yep that's what happened to me, wait until I fight back, beat the shit out of the kid because I knew karate and get suspended.
THATS MY PURSE, I DON'T KNOW YOU.
Gotta get all them $$$
My experience is: punish the victim, ignore the bully.
(P.s I didn't get bullied again after pummeling him, and he respected me enough I could glance at him and stop him bullying others.) :)
Similar with our Foster daughter. Even though the video showed she was the victim she was the one that got suspended for retaliating.
I find it hard to believe that "he was worried he would get in trouble". Surely he was lying and was just scared.
Because that will get you in very deep shit. This is real life we're talking about.
Next time you get to punch the bully. :)
Wait,,, are you saying that the school was reasonable? I'm calling bs
Fuck that kid
As stupid as it may sound: being suspended once or twice won't harm your kids future, but bullying can destroy him and fuck him for life.
Zero tolerance hurts development of Justice Glands.
Violence breeds violence. Exactly the way I like it. Vengeance is mine.
Yup, when i finally stood up my to bully i got suspended. Dad took me out to lunch and let me play xbox for the rest of the week.
My daughter went to state the last 2 years in wrestling and does jiu-jitsu and taekwando she is 10 right now.. She is prepared :)
+ tons of fun for dads as well
... What does that even mean, and how does it relate to the topic at hand?
Well?? Did she get ice cream!!
The new rule is, they hit you, you hit them. One shot and put your hands up. Make it count.
Yeah that way he'll get arrested!! Good strat
This is awesome, and this is possibly the day that could change your boys outlook on life. Very defining. Kudos.
That's the most retarded thing I've ever heard.
yeah this happened to me- both me and the bully got suspended
well, I'm retarded, so you're right on track!
Good for your son. I remember beeing bullied and taking revenge on them, guess who was punished not the fucking bullies.
As a teacher, doing that would be more or less "doing it by the book." A truly good administrator would be lenient with it IMO.
Are you a dog?
That is some energetic and enthusiastic stripper! Good for her
Most suitable time to buy him his first violent game
Because you're not allowed to kill people except in very specific circumstances?
His dad died when he was 5. He was diagnosed with autism and depression, and was getting treatment. HE bullied other kids as early as 7th
Hi confused. I'm cangarejos
what was that kid thinking? How was he not in awe of this guy's size: absolute unit
grade, butchered frogs and other animals, had a history of violent behavior, but you're trying to convince me that HE was the victim?
Ur kid is probably to cool for t school, jealous kids r everywhere, looking for the 1 that Stan up to taking him down ,pure jealous
That's how you can tell this isn't from America. They would suspend both kids in the US
Give me a source! last i heard, his brother and friends bullied him. Gotta provide a source
Been suspended once got shoved into a wall after being yelled at turned around and wailed him i was the only one suspended still salty
Apology?! APOLOGY!? We told you about a problem and you took no action which couldve resulted in serious injury. Send this to my lawyer.
However, if you fail to beat them, then it becomes apparent to the bully that he can do anything he wants, in the case of scrawny kids ofc
not 'fair enough' it is part of the fucking job to make sure the kids are save.
This is why my son takes boxing. He's confident and can handle himself.
as a victim of childhood bullying don't let being punished stop you from standing up for yourself, js
"You're lucky he didn't bring a gun to class. If you suspend him, I'll tell the local paper you ignored the warning signs of gun violence."
Whenever I have kids first thing I'm doing is teaching them a martial art and telling them, dont start anything, just finish it
taught the bully not to fuck with him
Way to go! My pops always told me on the first day of school to punch anyone in the nose that tried to start shit with me.
Untrue story. School would hace suspended both boys. Any American school would.
His reward lasts a lifetime. No kid that witnessed this will start anything with him and, in the future, the kid defends himself.
Yeah well here in North Carolina we have something called self defense laws. It's crazy that you live somewhere like that tbh.my condolences
yes, in the US they punish everyone cause we're stupid here, but I would bet that this happened somewhere else, like maybe UK.
Lucky! My younger brother is getting targeted by bullies because of his tribe, he stood up for himself and now has a broken nose and a
Infought back school did nothing. But the bullys parents toød my parents tjat he had a history with bullying and apologised for their child1
That kid was no other than Albert Einstein
2. Sorrybfpr my terrible english
2 sorry for my terrible english.
Swollen eye, oh, and the principal apologized for the whole incident, to the bullies, my younger brother got detention, worst part is
Schools are routinely lazy and would rather depend on their zero tolerance bullshit do things for them.
There was a teacher present, he didn’t try to intervene until my younger brother stood up for himself, fuck that school
Yeah that "zero tolerance policy" that does that its fucking stupid
I say, if you get hit, you're already getting suspended might as well finish the fight.
It was a very good video, hes a smart dude
Hes a smart dude who does good lectures. Definitely check him out for yourself
this is the way of my kids schools here in Washington. Wont do anything about the bullying until there is physical altercation.
Actually both, bullying is a possible symptom of a variety of different problems
Your policy as educators should be to fucking ensure this shit doesn't happen.
If the bullied kid fights back or even tries to defend himself he will be subject to the same punishment as the bully.
As a person who went to school, that's bullshit. Everyone's a bully. Every child can be a bully. EVERY child is a sociopathic asshole with
Yep happened to me on several occasions. As well as when I would stick up for my younger brother who was bullied far more often. They say/2
I LOVE that guy! Made my friend with 3 kids watch his bit on Real Time with Bill Maher.
it's tough but you have to stand up to bullies.
They teach the kids to be severely passive and hope that it stops. They say tell a teacher, or counselor, only that doesn't stop shit
little grasp on proper empathy and the implications of their actions, and pitiful emotional control. Some are worse than others, but they're
still human beings who HAVE NOT FULLY DEVELOPED YET STOP EXPECTING THEM TO WORK LIKE RATIONAL ADULTS
It can definitely go either way. The bullies at my school (there were very few) were the poor abused-at-home variety.
Things like “well it isn’t really your battle to fight” etc. As if I’m really going to sit and watch some punk kid fuck with my brother.
GF is a teacher. The school stance is if you don't respond the bully can be charged with assault. If you do you are 'equally' responsible.
tell my boys the only way to stop a bully is punch him as hard as you can in the nose and that I would never punish them for it.
The exact wrong thing to do!
I was bullied all the way through school (aka 11yrs of hell). Got called bitch while walking with the nice teacher. She got sad.
AFAIK there aren't any plans to forbid the practice. I've heard it defended as it's hard to tell whos responsible so they fault both. Which
3days ago - cnn.com/2018/05/13/us/parkland-nikolas-cruz-brother-bullying/index.html - admits he bullied his own brother.
What a happy ending
I was lucky enough to pull the autistic card when i had problems.
would be completely unacceptable in any legal scenario. That man robbed me! judge:"10 years in jail for you and your accuser!" Would anyone
consider such a ruling sane policy?
I got jumped by a big black kid, didn't have anything to do with it, he jumped up yelling n***** and that made it racial. I came back to
clean for three weeks of my summer, he got off scott free. sooo yeah I agree with the schools usually fucking that up hard.
Wait, they punish the bully? When I stood up to mine in 9th grade only I got in trouble, and I didn't even hit the guy...
I was bullied alot in primary school for being a fatass. My dad taught me some wrestling grapples and later I had only 'friends' in school.
It's not Dems, it's fucking litigious parents. God damn.
I thought this was standard policy. Did this anytime i got bullied didnt win many fights but they dont bully you anymore
And that's what you have to do, STAND your ground and show bullies the floor. Well done
America's laughably ridiculous culture of litigation and legal harassment has ruined and is ruining American society.
Wish I had CCTV to prove I was never the aggressor. I *always* got in trouble with the school for retaliating. My folks knew the truth, tho.
"My boy flew into a rage..." Not surprising, but the rage part might be a symptom. The bullying may have affected him more than you think.
That's idiotic, and a quick chat with any lawyer would show that that's complete bullshit. Assault is assault. Self-defense is self-defense.
Wait the school actually backed you up? What is this wizardry?
Just saying, because my brother bullied me for years, and nobody did anything. My response was rage. And I still feel it 40 years later.
In the US your son would get in trouble. Stupid zero tolerance.
You should let your brother be beaten. Aggression is never good. You are better if you don't fight back!
Are schools allowed to lie about the law?
I recently told my son who was crying because he felt so helpless against the bully to just sweep the legs and back away. When the school
My mom got banned from my Jr high for refusing to keep me in "in school suspension" after I defended myself. It was a week long vacation.
Calls me to tell me what happened I will ask if they are ready to talk. Just knowing he has an option other than getting beaten makes him
Feel so much better
Back in my day we both would of gotten suspended but I'm in the US n by the bloke I'm guessing ur in the UK.
No one is allowed to knowingly deceive people into committing illegal acts. But a school's free to be uninformed / misinformed, or 1/?
perhaps try to minimise needed action on their part. 2/2
But if the guy reports the bully he's told to shut up, because that's bad PR. Bad PR = less kids = less money.
They actually punished the bully and only the bully? Bull...
I'm so happy for this! When I was in HS, I actually got suspended for breaking up a fight.. But it's Floriduh, so I'm used o that.
Got suspended for fighting a bully. Kid IIRC was a frequent juvie for fights and drugs in and out of school grounds. He slapped my ass 1/?
No but I had the best dog in the universe, his name was Bo and he was a 106lb German Shepherd. I miss him every day and hope one day I can
Don’t reward him for fighting with gifts. Reward him with words and an explanation as to why it worked in this instance 1/2
we had the superintendent tell us if we had to a bully, we'll get suspended but to think of it as a few days off
2/2 but isn’t the answer always. It will be a way better reward for him in the future.
have another GSD half as good as he was. I don't know how to succinctly describe how good he was. I'm on my 3rd gen of GSD's and still...
Buzz Killington disguised as Bruce Wayne
Big up to your boy. I never did stand up to my bullies. I just worked fucking hard later in life and proved my worth.
Yep, I have fantastic lawyers and know the prosecutors and judges ;-D. There are some perks to flyover states.
unnecessarily hard and said "good game" like it makes it excusable, especially when we're just getting out of a computer class. I shoved 2/?
Eh, tracheotomy. Not trying to kill them, you just give them something that is going to hurt forever so they never assault anyone again
Can confirm this is what my school did to me, I defended my self and they punished both of us. Thing is i refused to go so the suspension
I remember this case! If i recall correctly the bully said he didn’t regret anything or some stupid shit. Good on the big kid.
without remembering very vividly what it's like to get a can of whoopass opened on them by a 6'8" musclehead from Arkansas...
they wouldnt even tell me what they did to the guy that hit me, later found out through my friends he just got an after school detention
yeah. in my school if they knew that someone was a bully in the fight theyd dog him but not the other kid. still suspended both tho
luckly they never even contacted me about not showing up to my after school detention so i never had to serve it
him hard and he tumbled across the room, saying leave me alone. He got up, we exchanged words, and he charged me. Got him into a headlock3/?
I've broken bullies before. Make them cry, and be friendly about it. All they need is some real raw emotion.
Got shot by a bully; was suspended for fighting him next day. I was more afraid of my dad beating me when he found out. You're a good dad.
and about a few seconds later teacher broke it up and that was it. Everyone left the classroom because period just ended. Teacher 4/?
A school differentiating between hitting and hitting BACK? An apology? What the heck is wrong with that school?
Yeah it sickens me to hear them say "it takes two to fight so both have to be punished". You know, kinda like it takes two to have a rape...
apologized because he knew the guy was in the wrong. He had my back, but school policy caused us both to be suspended that weekend. 5/?
This happens. But sometimes the kid is just a dick.
if its a small enough school than they still suspend both but the teachers try to let the victim know its ok to stand up for yourself
But you knew you had to do it or it wouldn't stop, and you feel bad about it. You sound like a reasonable bloke to me.
I'm surprised they didn't suspend your kid. Nevertheless, good job parenting!
Good for him. Right now 93 people disagree with defending yourself. What’s the other solution to this problem then? Please tell us?!?
It showed up on my juvenile record as disorderly conduct, but dropped for me. I got a request to testify against the kid, but I didn't. 6/6
fair enough? seriously? a school has a responsibility to ensure a safe environment for all students. No excuses!
That actually is standard practice. You're never considered human by anyone but yourself in school man.
Amazing response from school, very atypical. Good for your lad.
As a person that was bullied 8 vs 1 for about 16 years glad your boy stood up for himself. I till this day have trust issues and i left sch-
"It takes two to fight!" -- among the dumbest things ever said.
You can fix that too tbh, probably a lot harder but not impossible. Also, that wouldn't neccessarly mean the parents are faultless.
He might not be directly bullied by the parents but it might still be poor parenting leading to the kid becoming a bully.
ool atleast 6 years ago. Bullying is under rated and the consequences are only visible after school. Example: anxiety leads to 0 flirting
The kid bullying me actually got a lighter penalty when I finally tried to defend myself (one-day suspension, versus my three).
By calling your kid "bloke" and the fact that your kid wasn't punished, I assume you're not in USA?
Missing the '/s'
Umm what? no.
Better the bully gets his nose broken than your boy ends up on a shrink's couch ten years from now.
I’ve also witnessed the victim walking away from someone trying to start a fight with him and they both be suspended.
Give him a steak. That’s a reward.
Bloke? ... Arse? ... Blimey.
Side note: he was always obnoxious and just plain rude. But all the small stuff built up until I was sick of it.
At my school his reward would have been getting suspended.
No, the bully wasnt following the conflict initiation strategies outlined per school policy, but that's not in the handbook so \shrug/
At the school I was in you could get in trouble just for getting hit, not for fighting back. If you get hit, you were "invovled"
Bully often would get light/no punishment because they are in trouble too often and too many suspension automatically means expulsion
And they strived never to expel
You’re a special kinda stupid aren’t ya?
The high school I went to always punished those who got hit because they "allowed themselves to be involved"
He contributes to stigmas already attached to psychological disorders, refered to borderline episodes as temper tantrums etc.
Pretty sexist too
Yea. It's a good sentiment, but it's not always going to work. I've never punched anyone in my life, but I would if I had to.
If only it were this simple in reality.
I don't believe you, there is no bigger lie than "Bullying will not be tolerated"
My highschool (NY) had a zero tolerance policy. Meaning if someone punched you, and you did nothing back, you both got suspended
Reaults as expected: kids figured out if they hit someone it got the victim suspended. Smashing success...
I LOVE how they didn't do a damn thing until the kid getting bullied took action.
Glad to hear it. In 9th grade I got pushed and punched by the school asshole, then I snapped and kicked his ass in front of his and my class
Nah in Australia both kids would be instantly suspended regardless. Which is why this could be a "and everyone stood up and clapped" story.
Fucking inept school.
Ended with me sitting on his back with my knee in his neck, and him asking for help in front of all. He was pissy later, but never did >
again towards me. It was a great day.
And then the real world hits like a ton of bricks after graduation
Wait, the school didn't threaten to expel your kid and file charges? This isn't in america is it.
It's a bunch*
Good for you for helping out others!
Wish I was told to stand up for myself back then, instead of "ignoring" the bullies. It caused more damage (to me). You did a good thing.
Wear bullied in school, was punished for being a victim, kicked out of the school right before the end for being the victim. Well done OP
That's called sarcasm I believe
Pretty sure it's sarcasm
That's the thing, the law agrees with you but a school can punish on its own codes and rules separate from law as it sees fit.
My school’s policy was that if you’re being hit and put your hands up AT ALL now you’re attacking them too and are suspended as well.
American kids just kill themselves. Good to see someone knows how to not raise a pussy. Good job.
arent you glad they didnt make a fuss about it sooner? now your son knows how to stand his ground until the end of days. a leson learnt!
Violence isn't the answer, unless they lay their hands on you first, that's my only exception.
Good. I hope you also taught him that an ass kicking is never first resort. Good for him.
You don't believe one event happened because another event happened? Weird.
Same thing happened with my daughter. The other day she finally punched the little bastard that was messing with her. A proud day for a dad.
so it's not physical fighting if only one party throws punches?
Sure. If you want to generalize it that way then go ahead.
I've never seen a case where both kids weren't suspended. I took my brother on holiday when he was suspended for "fighting".
Granted..... her telling the assistant principal to go fuck himself probably had something to do with the ban as well.
When I was bullied in grade 6 I brought a fishing knife to threaten him with, word got out and he told the teacher, and I had to stay behind
Literally everything that has to do with our school system is bs.
End of day and this old geazer of a teacher, assumed because of the colour of my skin, I was sikh and the knife was part of my religion
John Stamos? Google list one as born in 1963. Sorry don't get the reference.
So instead of me getting into trouble, his lack of understanding the difference between south Asian cultures I was just asked not to bringit
Very nearly, yes.
The bully never bothered me again, he thought I was crazy to bring a knife to school to stab him with so he kept his distance. Fuck u ricky
My old school both sides got suspended no matter what. Such bullshit
My dad always told me the same thing. Never go looking for fights but never be pushed around. I got suspended and a tip to worlds of fun.
Slay, mama. You deserve better treatment for your boy!
FUCK that. That kinda stuff really pisses me off. Hang in there, man.
Where I went to school it was wait for victim to fight back then punish victim and make victim apologize to bully
Got a call today. My 12 daughter was bullied. Boy smacked her. She kicked him in the ding dong. Kneed his face and jumped on top of him 1/2
THREE CHEERS FOR SWEET REVENGE
And finished him. This is the second time. Gave her a high 5. Threatened legal action against the school and kid. Self defence.
7 years of martial arts comes in handy. I am so proud of my lil one. They wanted to suspend her. I'm more inclined to make her a cake
Just let your kid reach out with a fist. That usually does them in.
I'm always happy to hear these kinds of stories
It seems to be the case in the US. Pretty shitty politics if you ask me.
I had 3 days in door suspension when a kid tackled me from behind on the tarmac and severely bruised/cut me up. I did nothing but be hit.
i dont like that meme. it is cringy
Sadly would only result in less money for the school
Yep. Apathetic parents tend to produce kids who will do whatever it takes to get attention, even if its negative attention.
I wish CCTV was around when I was in school. I was the one that got in shit for standing up to the bullies.
Sounds like something Uncle Jessie would say to the kids on Full House.
The bullied finally strike back. Bully goes free, bullied gets punished.
My son hit the bully in grade 5 and from then on the bully stopped picking on anyone. Son told him he'd punch him again if he continued.
And an invitation for a lawsuit. This can't be the US.
Tf kind of school let's kids stand up for themselves anymore? My high school had a "zero tolerance" policy. Meaning self defense or not 1/2
He’s moved school now
Both kids got suspended
UK here, this was my experience too. Nobody cared until I fought back. School system doesn't care about kids, not one bit.
Unfortunately mine was completely unreasonable- but tried to date me as an adult, people are so strange
Our schools teach horrible social policies.
My kid is a head taller than anyone in his class...which is one reason the little shit got away with it for so long.
What about bullying the head teacher until they sort it out? Serious question.
Yep, we had a “no tolerance” policy for fighting. Dumbest shit ever, I was suspended for defending myself. Reporting bullying didn’t 1/2
Work either. The response was always along the lines of don’t be a tattle tale or “well, we didn’t see it” 2/2
That's why you go after the specific staff, or claim to sue the school if the specific staff isn't removed.
I still remember to this day getting in trouble in 3rd grade for reporting a fight in progress. They said I was involved because 1/2
I watched the fight. Well how the hell else would I have known to report it if I hadn’t seen it? I remember my mom being pissed. 2/2
i once got detention for getting punch i did nothing a kid just punched me and i got detention very strange school.
to stop bullying all kids should have guns at school change my mind.
There will always be a time and a place for violence
Most of the bullies used ugly words and always it ended when I got away from schools. But, I punched one kid in the face and he stopped. So.
The statement was about the victim being passive to strengthen their position legally, for fear of the law somehow seeing you as "equally1/?
responsible". That's plainly false, especially given how many witnesses there are with regards to school bullies and a known history of 2/?
incidents. Now, if a school decides to punish you separately for standing up for yourself, even if you *successfully win a court case*, 3/?
that'd reflect very badly on the school. Aside from that, though, you might want to rethink choice of school for your child(ren) if a 4/?
"Crikey, that's a big one!"
school decides to punish your child for self-defense after a school refuses to in some way intervene and set down real consequences for 5/?
your child(ren)'s bully / bullies. 6/6
Yeah i got even outside of school, thats what im teaching my kids too
Not quite, you can always make their social life a living nightmare by manipulating everyone to turning them so they taste their own poison
that usually exacerbates the problem...they lose friends so they get angrier
In my personally experienced empirical evidence it hasn’t. (I was the victim) They very quickly realized they fucked with the wrong person
Excellent. That’s how you stop bullies. Not ignoring them.
It hasn't happened for a long time now. It ended when i threw the 4th Percy Jackson book at his head. (That was a thick book)
Told my son to always fight to protect himself or family/ loved ones. He said doesn’t want to hurt people.
Wish my situation could have been that way. I got suspended for standing up to my bully. Parents took me out to a movie, though.
good now tell him that he shouldn't ever start a fight but damn sure should finish them
Trip to Disney world!!
If a lawsuit is necessary, then it makes the case even sadder.
Please use interpunction. Strange school indeed.
Your kid deserves a beer.
That's bullshit. Schools need to start doing like self defense classes or some shit. Take up wrestling.
Yep zero tolerance can’t defend yourself.Suspended my son for pushing down a bully who hit him first Told principal son should whupped bully
You fucker... I loled. In work. Strange looks. Worth it
That boy ain't right
Maybe we do it differently here in Australia. Not to sure why I'd make this up. Take care mate.
Dude the school I went to I literally saw just the kid who got hit get in trouble and not the guy who hit him
This is a good point.
All these replies and people wonder why kids these days have/carry out their revenge fantasies.
Yes I called it fake news
@op sounds like they're strayan, our schools are pretty reasonable
Don't fucking do this. I stood up to my bully after no one would help me despite multiple reports, and got choke slammed into a wall.
A bully in that same group a couple years later hospitalized a kid after literally smashing his balls flat with his boot.
Yes. Sadly I made the mistake of thinking people are not completely stupid.
O B V I O U S S A R C A S M
At my school in FL, they had it in writing that you are kinda another form of a legal guardian so anything that happens off campus also 1/2
affects you on campus if reported ie fighting off campus, bullying off campus, drug use off campus etc etc. This was a public school btw 2/2
It took a really long time for me to take a stand. I put up with so much shit. But when I did, instead of hitting back, I went to the 1/?
Principal's office and told him. He called the bully to join me and him in his office to have a talk. The bully was stupid enough to try 2/?
mock me right in front of the Principal. He wasn't havin' none o' that shit. The bully got put in detention, and I was told that from 3/?
then onwards, all I'd have to do is say a word and the bully would get a week of detention on the spot. 4/4
1: One bully who was particularly harsh to me in 7th grade accidentally gored himself on a dead branch when he jumped out of a tree. >
2: He pierced some internal organs and eventually died of gangrene after several weeks. As happy as I was to get him out of my life, I have>
3: always felt bad about how horrible his death was. He deserved some shit, but he didn't deserve that. [end]
Did anyone else read this in a British accent?
Good for him! You did the right thing.
It is physical fighting even if only one party is throwing the punches however there is often verbal abuse before it gets to that point
that nothing is done about.
Australia? Yea your schools are not a complete nightmare there, just the wildlife is. So true story bro.
Yes mate true story. Today my little fella was the happiest I've seen him in a long time heading off to School.
That's amazing they apologized!
I think I always knew that.
Slap the teacher then tell the, to STOP FIGHTING, then slap them again and yell, IT TAKES 2 TO FIGHT, STOP FIGHTING, the stupidity might
Dawn on them..but in case it doesn’t, at least you slapped the shit out of the teacher/principal and tell them you’ll be back for the next
Meeting, and the one after that, and the one after that, unless they do something about the bullying...
I do wanna see that CCTV footage
