Feel Good Story of the Day: Bullying Stops here!




Australian student Casey Heynes became the latest YouTube sensation—and unofficial anti-bullying PSA posterboy—when he was captured on video bodyslamming a bully that had hit him in the face.



The full story is HERE.

Do you think PEEWEE will bother anyone again? Especially someone twice his size?

My son had a kid in Jr. High that routinely teased him and tried to make his life miserable. Apparently, when my son had had enough, he shoved the kid--who was smaller than he was, incidentally--up against the wall and told him to leave him alone. I think the kid might have gotten his arm scraped up, but the only consequence that happened was that the kid left my son alone from then on.

Bullying is a complex issue, but our current approach to punish the kids who retaliate against it is probably not the best one. Bullies try to maintain status by picking on others; status that they can't hold onto when someone responds directly to their bullying.

Hey, Bos, you should add a clip from the movie "A Christmas Story," you know, the one where Ralphie beats up the bully?
