I just want to say, as someone who was bullied, I was taught by my mother that everyone deserves respect and to turn the other cheek.
While that's great and all, I wish someone would have taught me how to defend myself verbally an physically as well because kids are little ***** .

i understand what OP is trying to say but I think we should continue teaching children that bullying is not ok, if people start to understand why its not ok there's a larger chance it wont happen.
teaching prevention is a more useful tool than fighting back

Unfortunately a big enough portion of society (or at the very least the vocal minority) has gotten it into their heads that all you need to do to stop assholes is to say a few kind words and hug it out. Unfortunately, kind words don't always work, but a fist to the face drives the point home. At the very least, standing up for oneself makes you less of a target, because the vast majority of bullies are just looking for easy targets to make themselves feel superior.

The bigger issue however is the way teachers have been dealing with bullying situations as of late. Often teachers are reluctant to do anything to correct the problem because they fear parental and school board complaints/litigation if they administer discipline (the 'sue everything that I don't like' culture basically). When the bullied kid finally snaps and knocks someone's lights out, both parties are suspended/expelled to 'make it fair' or 'because they instigated violence'. This isn't because they necessarily agree that both parties were at fault, it's just that it is much easier to indiscriminately hand out punishment than to actually make an informed decision and work through the problem.

Society has started touting the 'don't fight back' idea, and the school system supports it because it allows them to avoid actually having to take responsibility for disciplining students.

we've started to create a society in which everyone wins. all the kids get gold stars just for participating and the winner's may be shinier than others. this only allows kids to gain this sense of self-entitlement to which they grow up to become pieces of **** who think everything should be handed to them.

This topic gets me so mad. When I was in school I was far too small for my age, right up till 12th grade people were giving me **** for my size. the schools suggestions back then were to walk away. This was pretty ****** hard when you wree cornered in an unmonitored part of the school.

These days (11 years out of school and now 6 foot tall) I teach martial arts and self defence. we teach some of the toughest kids you could imagine. Really gentle natured fit, athletic, powerful ******* that make me proud of what I do. and because they do martial arts other kids try to pick on them or bully them at school. These days the schools have this ******** approach where you can be suspended if you retaliate to a bully, but starting a fight does not carry as severe a punishment. I have one student who has changed schools three times because kids hit him and he hits back. We have another who was held off the ground by two older kids while a third beat him senseless, when I asked why he didnt fight back he said because the school would suspend him for it. What kind of society are we where the victims of bullying have lost all right to defend themselves.

And by far the worst case of bullying I have heard of were two of the 6 year olds I teach who were being pushed around and picked on by highschoolers.... more people need to discipline their kids and schools need to stop punishing the victims.

the school systems are to blame for bullying behavior in the first place, per example, say a guy, we'll call him **************** is picking on another kid, well call him, jeff. now, **************** has been bulling jeff for like, 10 years, and he's only been told to not do it again, so jeff finally stands up to **************** , hits him right in the face, **************** doesnt fight back, jeff gets expelled because apparently **************** had family issues that couldnt be put aside so he pushed his anger onto jeff, **************** is off scott free, and jeff is expelled.

I have been a tomboy pretty much all my life. I got along so much better with the guys than i did with the girls, and i think they hated me for that for some reason. Maybe it's because i was able to reach a point they never could just because i was able to make friends with guys better. Many girls have tried to start fights with me and some even tried to pull my hair. Only one girl in my life just tipped the scale for me. I was in 6/7th grade gym class, and there was a girl and her little **** group of friends that were making fun of me for hanging out with a boy. Calling me gay, freak, weirdo etc. I ignored her because you know words are just words. But then she said, "you know, if he was your boyfriend, you would have the ugliest boyfriend." To which i responded, "yeah, but at least i can get one." That zinger must have struck a nerve with her because then she started coming after me pulling my hair and scratching my face. The fury of all my held in anger just flew out and the first thing i did with grab her by the throat and just kept squeezing harder until she was gasping. I let her go, and she coughed a few times, but she would have been fine otherwise. Never again did she bother me. And to this day, i still get along better with guys than i do girls

sorry for the tl;dr

I remember hearing about a study that showed that anti-bullying campaigns actually increased mostly because they just gave bullies more ideas on how they could bully.

Teaching kids to stand up for themselves not only is an effective way to deal with bullies, it teaches a life lesson: You need to stand up for yourself and you can't expect everyone else to drop everything and sing Kumbaya every time you get upset.

I agree with this, if you just make laws saying dont be mean to others, people are still gonna be mean, its human nature. If you teach the kids to tell the ******* off and stand up for themselves people will stop pickin on them
User avatar #79 - fuckthehabs (06/07/2014) [+] (7 replies)
You can only go so far with that though. While I've only been teaching for a short time, I can guarantee you that there are many kids who literally cannot stand up for themselves. Either they're way too small and risk getting beat to death or mentally not strong enough and will go home and end their lives because of it. Just because it doesn't apply to you doesn't mean it helps no one. And don't call it the "pussification of a nation" or what have you, we're at the very beginning of a long shift from violence to peace. Are these laws that the government is passing truly efficient? No, of course not, and to add onto that some of them are god awful (ie students getting suspended for fighting back against their bullies), but like I said, this is the beginning and we can't expect to be happy with the earliest reforms.
