    As a parent we hope our kids would never do something like that but the reality is that kids can be cruel! I hadn’t seen the video and expected it to be girls doing the bullying. We need to use this as a teaching moment for kids of all ages!

    • Great point Julia. Parents definitely have some skin in the game. What kinds of things should the school do in terms of discipline of these students? This is where admin find themselves in the middle trying to satisfy the victim, teaching the violator, and enforcing the desired culture

      Nice short video. Nice short video. Good start! Sick of waiting for the end of pelope’s vids to find out what they’re offering. +1Was this answer helpful?

  2. After watching the full video I was heartsick. Our culter has allowed chiildren to manifest into what is seen here, through lack of discipline and the followthough of consequences. At most, I would have expected the bus driver to pull over and address the situtation, or the monitor to signal the driver to pull over and address it from there. Instead we are made to feel that we crush the rights of people who have yet to experience life when we discipline on the lack of respect. Our parents generation was tougher than our generation and we have done away with almost all values that made us who we are. Yes the spankings hurt! But just like modern medicine, when in the right hands and administered correctly, the results were “Respect” and “Think before acting.” Unfortunately, the train is going to fast for to long to try to switch tracks on todays youth and how to change the thinking process. It starts at home.
