    Woot!!

    * disclaimer: I do not normally advocate violence

    Liam got a detention today!!! He stood up to a bully. He attempted to slug the other scum and arose victorious!!!

    I am making him a special dinner now. I am so proud of him!! All the other kids were so surprised at his actions, hopefully no one will bother him anymore!!

    For all the pacifists out there. We have tried the talking route. He has tried to reason with this scum and only ended up being tormented. The school does nothing to help him, so today, he decided to help himself.

    While it is good that he stood up to a bully, you best be careful that after seeing the power of violence he doesn't become a bully himself.

    He won't..he just couldn't take it anymore and the school did nothing to prevent it.

    Heh. You gotta learn how to stand up for yourself sometime. It's good to see Liam learning that lesson nice and early in life. I think you're doing the right thing. It's not like it was senseless violence or anything. I never did like the school policy that if you fight back against a bully you get in trouble. You can't just stand by and take a beating and hope the school steps in.

    Well, i'm glad he got rid of his bully.

    I would rather have had you contact the police or the parent's of the bully first...but it seems oyu did attempt to solve it the right way first...Sometimes you just have to let people know they can't walk all over you.

    He's turning to the dark side. Make sure he doesn't start choking people with his mind.

    Careful rewarding the violence though. Justified or not, violence should be shunned.

    well.. usually yes.. but.. when used as a last resort and after all other paths have been tried.. i don't see an fault in rewarding Liam.. so long as he knows that it's not what should be done all the time.. only in extreme cases.. some times you have to lower yourself to their level..

    *punches Boosh and gets a cookie* I see nothing wrong with it.

    Liam is a smart kid he knows why he is getting the dinner. Besides I have been in his spot before he should get some respect now. To loosely qoute Office Space "You gotta find the biggest guy and beat the **** outta 'em or become somebody's *****." Seems he took the first route. :drink: to Liam!

    Good for him. It's nice to see that he fought responsibly with a good ol' punch. When I get mad I tend to lash out with a face kill right away. Killing people in the face is not the reccomended approach unless there is absolutely no way out.

    *Kills entire forum in the face*

    As long as Laim understands the lesson that you tried to get across, then I think you/he did the right thing

    I don't see it as advocating violence, Zodiac, as much as advocating self-defense. Good for Liam.
