When are parents going to encourage their kids to stand up to bullies instead of waiting for the school to fix the problem?

I applaud the mothers effort, but the most effective thing is for your kiddos to stand up for themselves.  Bullies look for weak targets, stand up for yourself and they'll move on and you'll gain confidence to deal with future bullies you're sure to encounter in the workplace.  My oldest was bullied in high school as a freshman, he finally fought back and they were both were suspended; totally worth it though as the bullying stopped.

Her mother ought to be kicked in the mouth for posting that on the interwebs. On the other hand the kid needs to learn how to fight back, and stand up for herself. And whats with the little brother with his hands all in his mouth??

Doesn't work if the bully has more friends and/or is a better fighter than the target, unless the target opts for a Columbine-style solution.

Not confirming to their standards?
Wearing different clothes (even uniforms might be different because they got the name brand polo and you didn't)?

Aar1012: Kids are evil monsters


This. There's a certain percentage of the population that, even as an otherwise high-functioning adult, doesn't understand that some people have different values or thought processes and might do horrible things to other people and actually enjoy it.

This mother is the person who gets ripped off then stomps around shocked that someone could do something like that, just as she's going to be shocked if this only makes her daughter's abuse worse because this is what they wanted.

That's not how this works, mom. (Also happy Mother's Day. You're a miserable failure as one.)

This works like: You bully the bully right back. You make a video and spread it all over the net with THEIR faces, and stories like "years ago when we were in a playgroup together this was the little girl who shiat herself with fear when my daughter surprised her with her birthday cake"

Or "this boy is big and tough now and won't leave my daughter alone, but just last year he waddled out of the bathroom needing the teacher to wipe his ass for him. Isn't 7 years old a little late for him to be not wiping his own ass?"

No it  isn't. The most effective thing is to stop the bullies from bullying by making it clear that it's unacceptable, not simply to get them to move on and find someone weaker.

I agree with you: On the other hand the kid needs to learn how to fight back, and stand up for herself.

not the -best- analogy. Rape occurs for various reason, but it is still rape. Man/woman with out of control hormones, the thrill, the lust, even the way the person is dressed... Bullies are bullies just because you look different.

Okay

1. The bully needs to be punished severely

2. The kids in the video need to stop being giant pussies.

In the real world, no one will come to your rescue. She needs to stick up for herself.

The girl in the video will be one of those kids/adults that fold up in a fetal position when she eventually has to face people as a teenager or adult.

The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting which occurred on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, an unincorporated area of Jefferson County in the State of Colorado. In addition to shootings, the complex and highly planned attack involved a fire bomb to divert firefighters, propane tanks converted to bombs placed in the cafeteria, 99 explosive devices, and bombs rigged in cars. Two senior students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered a total of 12 students and one teacher. They injured 24 additional students, with three other people being injured while attempting to escape the school. The pair then committed suicide.
Although their motives remain unclear, the personal journals of the perpetrators document that they wished their actions to rival the Oklahoma City bombing. The attack has been referred to by USA Today as a "suicidal attack [which was] planned as a grand - if badly implemented - terrorist bombing."  The Columbine High School massacre is the deadliest mass murder committed on an American high school campus. Highly influential, it is noted as one of the first and most serious of a series of high profile spree shootings which have since occurred.
The massacre sparked debate over gun control laws, the availability of firearms within the United States and gun violence involving youths. Much discussion also centered on the nature of high school cliques, subcultures and bullying, in addition to the influence of violent movies and video games in American society. The shooting resulted in an increased emphasis on school security, and a moral panic aimed at goth culture, social outcasts, gun culture, the use of pharmaceutical anti-depressants by teenagers, teenage Internet use and violent video games.

Little girls can be real b*tches and it starts as early a 4 sometimes. I remember picking my daughter up from preschool and hearing one of them tell a less popular girl that she wasn't coming to her birthday party.
Boys seem to be content to practice ninja kicks and avoid much of this stuff.

2014-05-11 01:10:31 PM  
See, some children don't have it in them to be violent little shiats, even when the people they're being violent towards deserve it, so telling her that she just needs to beat up her bully one time and it will all magically end forever is just some ITG fantasy.

It's been pretty well-established by this point that the Columbine kids weren't really bullied that much. Eric was actually somewhat popular.

Schools and parents will never be particularly effective at stopping bullying. They lack both the willpower and the ability. However, telling kids to stand up for themselves and fight back isn't necessarily a good idea. It might work on the old-fashioned schoolyard tough guy (though it also leads to the prospect of the bullied basically joining the bully in terrorizing others). There are also bullies who'll just escalate the situation if the victim fight back.

I was bullied quite a lot from first grade, up until about the tenth.  Most of the bullies repeated ninth grade, then dropped out at 16 (which Michigan law allows, or allowed at the time).

Lots of times it's just kids being kids.  I've had people apologize to me later on, and I was like "okay, don't worry about it."

You just have to stand up to them.  Learn to brush off snide remarks.

I was bullied throughout middleschool.  Those asking kids to "toughen up" and stand up to their accusers are forgetting that bullies have lots of leverage.  The moment I stood up for myself, someone ran off to a teacher and sobbed that I was beating up someone for no reason.  I was suspended for two weeks after several other kids told the same bullshiat story, and then had to take an anger management course where I sat in a room and had to act out a play with puppets.  My parents then took me out of school after I attempted suicide.

So no, toughening up is just going to get you suspended and laughed at harder for having to play with puppets one hour per day.
 
2014-05-11 02:07:22 PM  
Oh, yes, let's just stand up to the bullies and fight back! Because bullies are never better at fighting than their victims! And on the off chance you actually WIN the fight, bullies never want revenge for that humiliation! They'd never blindside you out of nowhere, nor get their bully friends all together to knock you down and kick the sh*t out of you!

And NO ONE has ever been harshly punished for fighting back.

My family moved from Philly to a suburb the year my sister started highschool. We had moved to several different neighborhoods and the drill is pretty much the same. Don't let yourself get bullied ny establishing that you are willing to get physical if threatened, easy enough. For whatever reason, my sister did not follow the rule when she started highschool. I can only guess that there were different social factors at play from when her and I were in the same school. Anyhow, my sister caught the attention of a giant of girl who proceeded to relentlessly pick on her during her freshman year. My sister is 4'9 now, so she was probably 4'6 to this girl who was 5'8ish(my size at the time). It was strange because my sister was an athlete (albeit a small one) who never would normally take shiat,but in this situation she was a wreck. Typical bully behavior though, find a new or different kid that doesn't have a strong friendship base and intimidate and humiliate them at leisure. My mom learned when we were pretty young that we were able to handle our own affairs in these situations, but she made some attempts to call the parents and the school. Well around Christmas time of that year, my mom had had enough of the situation. She went to bully's mom's work (Acme supermarket deli) and walked behind the counter and promised that if her daughter so much as looked cross-eyed at my sister again, she would be waiting in the parking lot after her shift and would beat her ass. About a week later, bully girl and her dad showed up at our front door to apologize. Mature? Probably not, effective 100%. Don't mess with a pissed mama bear, they are not sane creatures. We'll never know whether the threat was an idle one, but it sure accomplished it's goal.

/My sister and bully girl became sort of friends by their senior year and I finger banged that big bully a few times in my bedroom, but never liked her.
