    One of my grandson's (age 10) has been bullied at school for some time. He asked me what he should to about it and I told him to punch the little punk right in the nose. In fact, I offered him $20 if he would.

    Today...he collected that twenty bucks and the punk won't come near him. He also got twenty from his dad, my son.

    I'm SOOO proud of my grandson!:clap2:


    ps. Ok, it's supposed to read "bullies" in the title, but I don't know how to edit it.

    I don't disagree with you, but the lack of adult supervision on playgrounds is appalling. Unfortunately, "yard duty" is a dirty word among unionized teachers.

    I think "bully" has evolved. When it's one kid picking on another, standing up to them, especially when they are younger, is the best solution, IMO.

    However, when it's a group of teens... And especially when they start using social media it can be a different story.

    I remeber when I was in high school, a group of girls didn't like another girl and started a Facebook page about her. They would write horrendous things, and just about the entire school knew and saw this page. The girl was threatening to kill herself over it.

    Now if you would quit picking on the contributors to society, I will give you $20 bucks!

    :clap2: Although I had always told my babies not to pound one someone or even bully them for the sake of it, I told them don't ever backdown if some little
    ass bitch decided he/she wanted to bully or start a fight with them.
    Good for him.

    That's another issue that grabs at my heart...there have been way too many teen suicides over bullying in school and on the net...so much so, it seems that we are hearing of a teen suicide damn near weekly.
    Just this past week a teen girl hung herself because her younger sister had hung herself over bullying...two baby daughters, gone. All because of some vindictive evil little bitches.
    It's become a trend, an epedemic.

    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota senators on Thursday approved requiring schools to take new steps to prevent bullying, despite arguments that the effort was a time-wasting example of the "nanny state." North Dakota is one of only a handful of states that doesn't have an anti-bullying law for public schools, said Sen. Richard Marcellais, D-Belcourt. Sens. Oley Larsen, R-Minot, and Margaret Sitte, R-Bismarck, spoke against the measure. Larsen said children need to be taught how to handle bullying, rather than ordering schools to focus on bullying prevention. The legislation "rewards kids for thinking and acting like victims. It will promote a victim mentality and handicap kids for life, not just after the school bell rings," Larsen said…."People do need to learn to stand up for themselves."

    Is it true that you'll be a guest speaker in Bismarck?

    This could cost you some bucks....
