We're not doing enough.
We're right on track and taking appropriate measures.
We're blowing it way out of proportion.
We were both called into the office and I told the vice-principal that I told and they had their chance to stop it, they didn't so I did.
We were both told to go back to class and I never Heard anything else about it.
I also didn't have any problems with the kid again.
I don't mean we had a knock down drag out fight, he got hit a few times and we were caught.
The authorities have one shot to take care of the problem, if they don't you have every right to defend yourself, no matter the rules.
You have to ask them if they think it is OK to get beat upon over and over again. Is that what the rules are for?
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
don't misunderstand, I didn't say I approved of zero-tolerance policies. I don't. I don't think ANYONE should ever be required to be someone else's doormat just to stay out of trouble.
I'm just saying that is the lay of the land and you have to deal with the way it is today, not the way it was in my day.
Basically I told my son, well I told him a lot of things and I got involved in some cases, but three things I told him:
1. It is okay to defend yourself against physical assault. If someone lays unwelcome hands on you, or draws back a fist and steps up like they're gonna use it, do what you have to do and I will back you up 100%.
2. If someone is running their mouth, just tell them "talk is cheap" and try hard to ignore them thereafter. Trolls tend to go away if you don't feed them.
3. If you just can't STAND it anymore... tell me, and we'll figure out something together.
