We need to help this dad and child... Call the school! This is our way of helping the dad protest and help stop the bullying since we don't live
there. This dad has paid a service to us and now it is our turn to help repay him...
Mod Edit: *snip* (removed the schools phone number. Calling for activism is against Terms and Conditions.)
I am going to call now and tell them how horrible this is of them... they are there to protect our children when we are not with them, not punish them
for protecting themselves when no one else would....

I was bullied by a guy in high school. I was a nice kid, had lots of friends in different places, the sort of kid everyone was down to hang out with.
I wasn't an introvert either. This guy was a big guy, a football player, he'd push me into the walls when I wasn't looking, or he'd trip me. I
never wanted to mess with him because he was such a big dude. Sooner or later, I turned around one day after being pushed into my locker while I was
getting a book out of it, and caught him square in the chin with a solid right hook (Grandpa was a boxer, Dad was a boxer, Brother was a boxer, I knew
a thing or two.) He never gave me a hard time after that. In fact, he'd hold a door open for me once in a while if my hands were full. We're friends
nowadays and as adults we shrug it off as High School hormones.
Kids who pick fights should be taken out of schools indefinitely and schooled elsewhere. They're parents should be investigated and our standards for
parenthood should be MUCH higher. If you're unfit and don't fit those standards, you should have your children removed, yours sex organs 'fixed',
and restraining order placed.
Kids who stand up to bullying, should be left to do what they do...handle their business. Fighting should be a last resort...and sometimes last
resorts have to happen more than once. Fighting, getting into 'rut' and other violent actions towards other children are all natural byproducts of
1,000 students of all classes, makes, models, races, sex, being stuck together in public schools for 10+ years. Those actions are also byproducts of
children being children...fights will happen because kids don't know how to handle certain emotions, feelings, or situations. Those same kids also
don't typically know where they can go to seek help and advice. If kids are in the counselors office more often than others, I think the schools
should look into that child's home life to make sure nothing suspicious is occurring (harassment both verbal and physical, abuse, sexual assault,
molestation, or simply being ignored.)
It's all in the checks and balances and in America, within the school system and parenting, there are few of either.
