Are bullying problems out of control?
I was bullied in school and remember wishing that teachers would step in and stop it. Teachers saw what was going on, and would stop the bullying temporarily by telling everyone to take their seats or by saying that's enough, but never addressed the situation. Bullying is not the fault of teachers, but they need to be more active in stopping it.

Bullies do not belong in schools, where there are other students that actually want an Education and make something out of themselves. Instead you have these bully students that only want to come to school to impower themselves and try and take control over someone that does not deserve their bad actions/behaviour.
The bullies that want to act like this, then we need to open up a school for the WayWard kids,that careless about people. Name the school, Bully B.S.!!! We do not need these bullies having the chance to interrupt the students that want to learn/educate and move on with their lives, instead of being bothered by these can't seem to get it, bullies!!! These bullies need to take a piece of paper, crumble it up, unfold it and see what bullying looks like. It leaves scars and like that piece of paper,it leaves many marks, that are not so easy if ever to erase. I am sick and tired of hearing, well boys will be boys, or girls will be girls. REALLY??? It is just not that simple, too much for way too long. As a parent, and others on this topic, lets get together and do our best to stop these bullies, and make them pay legelly, if we don't do it, then who???

Visit my site: www.dorielle-ames.com It is through the courage of every ontarian that we will have a safe place to live in. It all starts by self-esteem and self-respect. Join me in my life's quest to turn this fashion around. We are dealing with human beings people. How would we feel if we were Craig Wilson today?

If this criminal was a few years older he ould be doing hard time but because of the "group hug will fix everything" justice system in canada he now has the oppertunity to troll for new victoms with the sure knowledge that there will be no consequenses.
At the minimun the perpetrator should be enjoying the hospitality of the "youth center" and the almost constant company of the shrink so, although we can not eliminate the future victoms, perhaps we can minumize the numbers.
