My 9 year old son and most other kids in the neighbourhood have been bothered by a neighbourhood bully for over a year now. Since the weather is getting nicer, we have been worried that there would be more confrontations coming soon. Last summer, this kid and a friend of his pulled a knife on my son. The bully was only 7 years old at that time. I went directly to his mother who was shocked that her son could do this and tried to deflect all blame on the other boy. Anyways, the kids punishment amounted to about 1/2 hour indoors. On Saturday, the problems started!!! The kid was whipping ice chunks at all of the kids and ended up hitting my four year old in the face. On Sunday, he returned and tried to stir things up again. I noticed him in the park and watched what transpired from my window. He was antagonizing my son and my son did his best to ignore him. He ended up walking away and the kid followed him while throwing everything that he could find at my son. My son finally turned around and the next thing you know, my son was sitting on his chest and punching the little terror. The bully lost a lot of playground clout when he started calling for 'mommy'. Anyways, the bully returned yesterday and apologized to my four year old and my 9 year old who took the situation into his hands and handled it.

Wow!!! That's just fantastic!!! Nothing worse than a child living in fear. Probably did the bully a favour. Congratulations to your son!!

I remember the time I stood up to a bully. I was a sophomore in high school. He was the alpha male in a group of bullies that'd been making my life miserable since I was a freshman. One day, he & his buddies pushed me too far and I introduced his jaw to my left hook. I got a Saturday detention out of it, but it was well worth it.

Definitely worth the detention, Mike. I'm sure that it gave you back your dignity and you didn't have to walk around in fear after that. I remember when I was young(er), that you either dealt with a bully this way or always watched over your shoulder. Counselling of bullys back then was done with a fist, took a couple of minutes, lasted forever and didn't cost the taxpayer a cent. Now counselling takes 30 sessions, blames everything on an abusive childhood, screws up the bully more and bleeds the taxpayer dry.

I remember blowing up on a couple bullies in school. Funny how it shut them up, and the teachers didn't move to stop me either. Even if I didn't manage to reach them, the idea of me comming after them seems to have been enough to impact more than just the target.

Now that takes nerve. Congradulate your son for me. I could never do it!

You'd be suprised at what you can do. When an animal (that's what we are, after all) is backed into a corner, it'll come out fighting.

Lol - Speak for yourself, Mike! I think that is great, Keltic. You ought to be proud of your son for standing up to the neighborhood bully. I am glad the bully apologized, too.

Nice work, Keltic Jr. wink.gif You should be proud, for sure. I know if anyone's kid hit my daughter in the face with anything, it would be all I could do to keep myself from throwing the kid through his picture window. I'm glad about the new Anti-bully leg. that came through a few years back. Parents can let their kids get away with anything, but when an RC is handing the parent a fine for their kids bullying, they start taking a stand, since for some money is more important than teaching their kids about honour and accountability.
