do you have any idea how hard it is to do a kid for bullying rob? Kids dont nark, the bully as a child has more rights than a teacher and nothing much can or will happen if the parents wont get on board. As a teacher ive seen it happen over and over, the system is stuffed and no one wants to know.

Bræðr munu berjask ok at bönum verðask,
munu systrungar sifjum spilla;
hart er í heimi, hórdómr mikill,
skeggöld, skalmöld, skildir ro klofnir,
vindöld, vargöld, áðr veröld steypisk;
mun engi maðr öðrum þyrma.

Brothers shall fight | and fell each other,
And sisters' sons | shall...

Our eldest was bullied very badly and the teachers only told him to not tell tales.

The breakthrough came when a stone was thrown at him while I was walking with him across the school fields to his classroom. The stone hit me and suddenly even the principal's attention was available. The student who threw the stone was dealt with but his parents were unable to meet with the principal to discuss the issues.

Bullying is not new and is part of the human thing for control. I was bullied at school. I was short, small in stature, had long hair worn in horrible pig-tails, spoke like a Scot and I got picked on. This was back in the days when there were still ink wells inset in the desks and smart arses sitting behind me would dip the end of the plait into the ink well so that I would end up with ink running down my back, or tie the plaits through the back of the chair so that when I stood up the chair came with me and nearly broke my bloody neck. The teachers did nothing - but I did and it didn't take long. One little boy emulated the way I spoke and all his mates thought it was very funny and I lost it. Punched him fair and square in the middle of his face, made is nose bleed and I was terrified. I'd never hit anybody in my life. However, he was even more terrified - and mortified because although I didn't recognise it at the time, I'd made him look a fool in front of all his mates. I have no idea how he explained away his bloody nose and black eye but it was the last time I was ever bullied.

20 year later the same thing happened to my daughter. She was being picked on and hassled at school, some of it being physical. I asked her what she did - she ran away and cried. I told her next time, sock them, at the same time prepared to having to visit the school to sort it out. She did. She was never bullied again either. In this case the school did contact me in the same vein as Kevin mentioned in his post and I told them to get knotted.

I am not advocating physical violence but children are little animals and a belt from their peers is something they understand. They are also usually weak characters who only do it when they have a "gang" of other kids to back them up. Get them on their own and they are lily livered. Give them back what they are so good at handing out and they back down pretty fast. Unfortunately this does carry on into adulthood and I should imagine that all of us know the adult version of the child bully. Gangs are a good example as are many drunks.

Cheers,
Ronnie

I too was bullied at school, but was told to 'turn the other cheek' and not 'stoop to their level' - oh, and that the bullies 'were probably very sad kids with problems that I should feel bad for'. Parents and teachers were useless dealing with it, they just seemed to think it was something that all kids go through.

What the....???????? [:(!][:(!][:(!][:(!][:(!]

I wish an adult had told me it was okay to fight back, even if it was only verbally not physically :(.

The original video of the incident here . Campbells's coverage is the lead story here .

As the father says later in the story Casey is now walking tall, and has undergone a change in demeanour. I would suggest he has shed his previous 'victim persona' and can also look forward to physical changes as he discovers his new self. The little sh*t that ringlead the bullying will think twice before trying similar actions again, once he stops limping [B)] :) and he desrves all he got.

Part of the reason I can't stand watching about 99% of these so-called reality TV shows is that they are set up to humiliate people and encourage others on the show to pick on the weakest/fattest/most different in the group in what usually amounts to a 'Lord of the Flies' type set up :(:(:( - oh, and of course film it so that it can be transmitted to as wide an audience as possible...

Hmmm, wonder where these kids get their ideas then...?? [}:)]

A few years back a Samoan friend told me a story about an incident involving his grandson at high school. Seems the grandson had been taking a bit too much from a gang of boys for a bit too long. One day he decided he'd had enough and punched the ringleader once and broke his nose. Who do you reckon got in trouble?

The story as told by the bully makes interesting watching. A bit of alcohol involved in both the father's past and the boy's gestation period it would appear, and FES would help explain the bully's behaviour.

Word is that Richard (the bully) was suspended from school for 21 days, and Casey for 4 days.

Vanaheim,
actually YES i do know, my son was bullied at school and I was glad when i asked him one day what was wrong, he told me he was being bullied, so i dropped everything and went right up to the school.I was totally pissed about this and i made my feelings crystal clear, the 2ic fixed it there and then. i was lucky it got fixed, but i told my son if it carries on, what i wanted him to do was to hit the bully so hard, that he would see stars and that i would back him all the way. bullies are cowards and am am glad that that kid stuck up for himself. this was a total set up by this bully and it bit him bigtime
