lovegravy: So to be clear your solution is to change the entire world to accommodate this kid.

My suggestion is to teach the kids to deal with it Themselves.

Bullying is absolutely wrong, But it is impossible to stop. Millions of kids are bullied and they don't cut themselves. This kid obviously doesn't like himself and a bunch of Facebook likes won't change that.


Maybe I'm naive but I believe that even if we can't fully eradicate a problem it is still worthwhile to try where we can. Or at least minimize the damage. Or at the VERY LEAST not respond to a depressed 13-year-old kid by calling him an attention whore who deserves the hell being brought on him.

One of the lasting impressions I hope my generation leaves on the world is acknowledgement that treating people with respect isn't a sign of weakness, that making a kid who already feels shiatty about life feel even shiattier should be avoided--even if it gives you a "back-in-the-day self-reliance" boner. Because if I ever reach the point where I believe (and this isn't just you, I'm now addressing the general tone of threads like this) the best solution to depression is prodding the depressed person to end it all I hope I manage to do the next generation a service and off myself first.

/Richard Simmons got a lot more desperate people to lose weight, keep it off, and feel better about themselves through "coddling" than Jillian The Barking Shrew Michaels and all the exploitative "Boot Camp" programs in the world ever could.

What do you want you moon-faced assassin of joy?

Nice. Is that really the same guy?

Yes it is.


He was in Animal House long before he was in Babylon House.  ;)

Kahabut: ThunderChild: xanadian: FTFA: Noah Brocklebank, a seventh-grader from Columbia, Md., has been bullied by his classmates for years. He's been called 'fat,' 'ugly,' 'annoying,' and loser,' amongst other terrible names.

1. Kids are assholes, *especially* at that age, and I'm glad the kid is getting help.
2. If he's so bothered by not just the name-calling, and it's his physique that's drawing all this negative attention, there's a solution: GET IN SHAPE, GO OUTSIDE, BE ACTIVE. Mommy Dearest, this is YOUR cue as a parent to support him in this.
3. He's no fatter than 90% of the other kids I see these days, but he's gotta lose that Bieber do. Yipes!

You were never bullied as a kid were you? Lucky you. The problem with being bullies is EVERYTHING you do becomes a target for them. 'Hey fatty, why don't you exercise?' becomes 'haha, look at the fat kid trying to run', which becomes 'why do you care so much about looking good, you shallow asshole'.

I'm not saying he shouldn't exercise because of that by any means, but it should be done for him, not them, because it won't help the problem. The best solution I found was to make a bigger effort to socialise, find a couple of people who share your interests and genuinely don't care what you look like.

The only thing that can get someone to feel better about themselves is a good support network, whether that's friends, parents or random strangers from the internet sending you mail.

Funny, when I was that age, and the kids bullied me because I was "fat", I beat the shiat out of the leader of the group. Then I asked his friends if any of them wanted to prove their mettle. Turns out they didn't. Never got teased again.


There's this kid who comes to my gym every Wednesday.  He's as fat as all get out.  I mean, he's got little moons circling him.  Anyway, he disappears into the aerobic room for about 30 minutes and comes back out drenched in sweat.  Now, the stereotype I grew up with was that if you were fat, you were out of shape and probably a wimp.  Well, this guy then decides he'll promptly curl something like 135 lbs for twelve times.  Four sets. And that was just a warm up.

Never f*ck with a fat guy.  If they don't sit on you, they could STILL beat the everloving tar out of you.

And HH...your posts are still solid gold.

It felt great.


Oh, also, I ended up doing just that to a bully when I was in (surprise surprise!) 7th grade.  He then sometime later became a close friend.

Weird.

Without too many spoilers, I like how Frank handled it in House of Cards. He gave the guy some aspirin and told him to take them. He ran a hot bath, told the guy to get undressed and get in, and then he placed a fresh razor blade on the side of the tub. He told him of the importance of slicing lengthwise instead of across, and explained that the hot water and aspirin would make the task more efficient and get the job done (anti-coagulant, etc.)

Then he gave the guy a choice to make, and walked out of the room.

Now, let us grab a cooler of beer and sit out on our lawns while yelling at the kids to stay off of them.

2. Lose the baby fat.

Seriously, one in three gay kids attempt suicide, many successfully. I'd say the odds he'll turn out to be one of these kids are about 9 to 1.

Ugly? Check out the classic English nose, the tiny girlish mouth* and the eyes. What will that hair look like on a 19-year-old?

*If I'm right about him being gay, this is his main handicap. Not that anybody else will care.

PapaChester: I know this is an assumption the size of the Milky Way, but that single picture of the mother screams "I AM THE MOST IMPORTANT CREATURE IN THE WORLD." I bet the kid is suffering due to the mother's ignorance of parenting.

/giant, massive assumptions and generalizations.
//Wha father whar?


assumption? um. yeah you bet... lemme give you one possible explantion.., parents are divorced. split custody. at mom's the kid doesn't cut because pays attention and the kid is kept occupied with activities, homework, soccer, or maybe just quiet time watching a movie.

THEN kid goes to fthers house where there two step-siblings and less supervision ensues. so cutting occurs because a) it's an attention getter and b) no one is watching close enough to prevent it.

lather,rinse, repeat every. farking. week.

thus scenario is plausible and I'm sure is happening somewhere as we speak. in fact, that hypothetical child might have cut themselves today as a matter of fact...

remember: when you assume you make an ass of yourself ...l

OK then, tell me how what the mother did will DECREASE the incidence of bullying on her child.

Again, she didn't solve anything.  She made herself feel like she was doing something with the least amount of effort possible and temporarily covered up the problem which will resurface bigger and badder for her actions.

People think just because this kid was being bullied for something fixable means there's a simple solution and he's wrong for feeling awful about it. I'm saying no, so long as you're not a bad person there's no reason at all to accept being made to feel like a bad person.

That's why I stress the "health vs. social acceptance" aspect of exercise advice. Telling him to fix being fat so he'll stopped being bullied is akin to telling him that his bulling was valid in the first place.

The hard part is getting to that point of living well while remaining happy. Plus unless you win the lottery, become famous, or something else, and they notice, then it's not much of a revenge; it's more of a self satisfaction that you "won".

So he'll still be fat and unhappy about it, what exactly got solved?

Nothing.

If he's happy about being fat then that's a solution.
If he's unhappy about being fat and he loses weight, then that's a solution.
Asking the world to kindly not point out that he's fat so he can remain sheltered in a soft cocoon of denial is not a solution.

  The last thing the kid needs is your pro-gay proselytizing. He is confused enough as it is without the drama queens coming in forcing him to believe an unnatural sexual choice is anything but.

This we can talk about. I'm not really a big fan of what she did. The kid needs real support from real people, not a bunch of platitudes shipped from all over the world. Though it is a nice gesture that will hopefully give him some reassurance that he's not so bad.

Frankly, the issue of adolescent depression is difficult. When the depression is exacerbated by bulling, doubly so. Ideally, you just ride it out until you get older, leave the high school, and find yourself in a world where people are a little more mature. That's obviously easier said than done. Talking to someone would help (if not his mother then a professional his mother can find). Real friends in school--people his age he can relate to and share interests with--even better. But there's no simple solution. It doesn't mean you stop looking for one, it doesn't mean you yell at the kid to figure it out himself.

And yes, it would be nice if he started dieting and exercising, so long as he understands the real benefits of doing so. They are, in order:

1. You lengthen your lifespan.
2. You feel more energized.
3. If you do it in a group setting you'll make friends in the group.
4. You eventually start feeling better about yourself afterward.
...
infinity - 1. It'll make the bullies happy.

Ending bullying in schools is a noble goal, and we should all be working together to do just that. It's not going to happen overnight, though. As a parent with kids in this awful, evil age, I can tell you that sometimes it's about keeping the bullseye off your kid's ass.

That said, actual weight is not this kid's problem. He is not a lard butt by modern standards, and is probably pretty average for his grade. That said, involving him in something athletic* will boost his self esteem, give him some positive social interaction, improve his health and his mental state, get him out of the house, and possibly get him strong enough to throw the elbow. Fighting is not the answer bad bad bad blah blah blah but again as a parent I'm saying that sometimes throwing the elbow is a necessary evil. The bullseye thing and all.

* making him go out for school soccer (or whatever the popular sport is there) is probably a bad idea. A better idea would be an individual sport like swimming, martial arts, or something really cool like fencing.

Wobble: As a parent going through a very similar situation with my 12 year old daughter, I fail to see the humor in most of the posts on here.  This is a cry for help, not attention.  You children that choose to downplay the seriousness of this problem need to get out of your mom's basement, find a girl (good luck), get married and have a kid.  If this is still funny in 13 or 14 years, then make your jokes.  That will just prove you're still a self centered asshole.


farking this right here. I know I won't be missed but this thread is the nail in the coffin. As many reasonable and insightful posters as there on here, they are vastly outnumbered by the douchebags.

And everyone calling this kid an attention whore is just jealous that no one's paying attention to their lame ass life. Keep on hating, fark. I'm out.

mbillips: LDM90: 13 was the worst age. Get well soon kid.

THIS. I was fairly popular at 13, played football and was in the band, and was still miserable. One big raw nerve; worst year of my life for no reason other than being 13.


I HATED middle school. In hindsight, I would rather have endured a DECADE of high school
than those two years of middle school.

I had a fair number of friends, but was ill-equpped to navigate the social waters of kids trying
to figure out who they are and cannibalizing anybody who was deemed different. I also wore
my heart on my sleeve - couldn't hide a crush to save my life. I was tall, gangly, and had no
boobs to speak of. I looked like a short-haired bucktoothed elf. Guess how many guys *liked*
knowing I had a crush on them?

My youngest son just started middle school last August. He's a lot like me as far as the heart
on sleeve thing. He likes this one girl a lot. They've been friends since 4th grade and she
kind of took him under her wing in 5th grade when some of the other kids picked on him for
being "different" (he's an Aspie / HFA). He gets some teasing about liking her, but I actually
think that the Asperger's is a gift - he doesn't "get" the social nuances so a lot of the comments
just roll right off.

Asperger's Syndrome (not "Aspies" *vomit*) is most certainly NOT a gift. It's an excuse to not have to even try fitting in or developing social skills. I hope for your kid's sake that he doesn't run around confessing publicly that he's "an Aspie". If so, he deserves whatever he gets..
 
2013-03-11 09:38:37 PM  

stonicus: Master Sphincter: Seems to me that cutting your arms and threatening suicide has more to do with kids trying to punish Mom and Dad than a real problem.

For some it is a way of exerting control on their lives.  "They think they can hurt me?  Ha!  Nobody can hurt me more than I can hurt myself, I win!"  or "If I am gonna be hurt, I am gonna do it on my terms in my way."

Not the healthiest of choices, and not true in all cases.  But for some, that is their mentality.


For others, it's a pressure release valve. When your life is so miserable that you feel like all of that
emotional pain just wells up and up inside until there's nowhere else for it to go. It's either give it a
way out or explode. To someone with that mindset, there's something cathartic about drawing a
blade across your skin - that first hiss of pain that temporarily short circuits the emotional pain - and
watching for those first beads of blood and imagining all of the pain oozing out along with the blood.

Yeah, I had times as a teenager when I was a bit of a cutter.

Wow...you assume a lot. My son is actually very social. And it *is* a gift because he is able to
see the world in a unique way. I wish I had the half of his ability to memorize the stuff. He's the
kid the science teachers come to when they want to teach their classes anything about sharks.

Got a question about weather? Ask Paul - he knows it. He has a network of friends - some of
them with Aspergers, some not, and he hangs out with them on a regular basis. He's a lector
at our church's children's mass. He loves school and in spite of the fact that almost iwthout
fail we were told at his IEP meeting not to be surprised if he got held back, he never has been.
He's been an A / B student and is in mostly mainstream classes.

So don't give me any crap about using Aspergers as an excuse to not fit in or developing
social skills. He IS different - but not LESS. He knows it and he owns it.

First, if you're going to kill yourself, who gives a crap if you go into debt?

'go into debt'? You mean 'are in debt'. and no, I don't care about it. Based on the number of phone calls I get each day, there are plenty of people that do, however, and that is exactly what I need... constant reminders of my complete failure.

Second, you don't know me, so I'm going to pretend I didn't read that.

I assume you are talking about the snarky 'just because you are surviving doesn't mean I can do it' comment. I have to accede that point. That was petty.

You are not the first person in the world that's had to go through this.  You are not special because of depression or suicide.  The flipside to that is the most important -- you are not alone.

And we agree again. I am not special nor will I ever be. SO, since I will not be contributing anything to society, why keep on draining it? Why keep on taking up space that would be better suited for someone who will make that contribution? As for not being alone? I guess that depends on how you look at it.

Nevertheless, you need professional help and not Internet snark.  Get some, and if it doesn't work try a different doctor or counselor.

Professional help? You mean those self-absorbed paper wavers who have no problem pushing handfuls of drugs into my system but can't take five f*****g minutes out of their month to even attempt some kind of thearpy? Or are you referring to the 'doctor' at county who spent three minutes with me one time, and spent those three minutes telling me I needed to get a job so I could go to his private practice and pay him for what he was supposed to be doing at that moment in time? That 'professional help'? Or maybe you are referring to the 'professionals' who denied my workers comp claim over this now permanent back injury because it was a very gradual thing and the law says I only have year, then I am SOL. Those professionals? And if it doesn't work try someone else? Who? And pay them what? I am broke. And, despite the definition having changed over the past 20 years, I am using that word in the traditional sense. Broke. As in no money. As in borrowing the neighbors internet to post this. As in zero dollars. As in eating a $2 bag of cheap store brand Cheetos for dinner. As in looking at a vehicle I cannot afford to drive and will soon be losing it too. B-R-O-K-E. No one in the medical profession is going to even spare me a look with my empty ass wallet.

Help is out there, but their hands are full with other people just like you.  So get in there, make the freaking phone call, and get your crap sorted out.

Help is a 'for profit' industry. I have no profit to give them. Therefore, no help. Yes, their hands are full with others, so just what expectation should I have? Phone call? I have been dragged out of my own shack already for making a phone call. No Thanks.

As I have said, I am a wuss. I can't do it. But, I don't want to live with this failure of a life anymore. I am not some angst ridden teen. I am at the half century mark. There is no greener pasture, no fork in the road, just a cliff. Maybe... just maybe... one day that desire to take control will be able to override that wuss inside and I can make room for someone with potential. Or, once I am really homeless, the elements can do it.

/HA... more wishful thinking... I will just live to be 103 while homeless and wandering the streets like a zombie... like I said, 'God' is not thru playing with me yet.
// BTW, I have tried three times to end it.. not in a 'drama queen' way, but for real... told no one... and failed. Hows that for being a pathetic wuss??

AbortionsForAll: If he was in fact suicidal, he wouldn't have warned the internet of his intentions.


Right, because no one has ever killed themselves after announcing it on the internet.

lovegravy: The problem is he's fat and doesn't like it. Hiding that isn't fixing it.


Being fat, or being unhappy about it isn't the problem. He could probably be just fine with it if he wasn't mocked for it. The bullying IS the problem. That, bad parenting of the other kids, and teachers not controlling their students.
