Right now, most children are never taught how to control their aggression and utilize it as a tool and, thus, they end up being controlled by that aggression. They act like thugs. They have no honor.
People will try to say that there is no honor in fighting, but they are wrong. There can be honor in fighting. There is an honorable to fight, and there is a dishonorable way to fight. It is important that we teach them the honorable ways of doing it.
See how nuts that sounds?
In a school setting? We should create more groups where students can bond over common interests and goals.. This brings kids together that may have never talked to each other before and it creates a peaceful, non-violent atmoshpeher-helping the kids learn from each other while developing friendships.
I am at a loss as to why you feel that boys need to fight to be able to bond and will not even get into the sexism part of all of this..
I am shocked at some of you! You cannot really think this is the answer for kids solving their problems? I just cannot get my mind around what some of you are saying in this thread and just disgusted!
You really feel if they do these caged matches at school that the losers are not gonna be picked on? Give me a break!
The majority of this thread is nothing but a bunch of chest pounding males that feel boys should be boys and fight it out. Makes me sick
