I am so tired of schoolyard bullies. But what I'm really tired of is the hula-hoops schools have to jump through in order to deal with this type of intolerable behavior.
I am sick of the kids who instill fear in all the other children in and off the playground. You know the ones, they sneak up from behind and punch and push other unsuspecting kids for no apparent reason. Or they disrupt the learning process in the classroom.
This type of victimization is deplorable.
When did it become impossible for schools to discipline these kids? Why do the schools have to be so afraid of frivolous lawsuits filed by parents who feel their kid is just misunderstood? It's ridiculous already.
No-tolerance bully policies should be implemented without question.
There always seems to be one of these kids in every class. This year it's someone we've known about and of course he's up to his regular tricks; pushing, punching, choking and defiance to name a few.
I've often observed the parents of this child while he commits behavior my children wouldn't dream of participating in (and my kids are far from perfect).
These parents do nothing! I DON'T GET IT! When did so many parents stop parenting? And why?
And I am not talking about kids who have learning disabilities, I'm talking about regular kids who feel it's okay to physically torment others and disrespect their teacher.
I am so tired of hearing about integrating these kids. It doesn't work because nine times out of ten the parents of these children don't see their kid as a problem.
It disgusts me.
