ashleygo - if what you say is true. Filing criminal assault charges would be what you should do, not hope for an anti-bullying law. I don't understand how parents let their children be assaulted regularly and do nothing but look to the school for help.

To try to help combat bullying, children should be taught kindness and tolerance as young as possible. The song “Be a Buddy, not a Bully,”-- for children up to 9 years old-- can be heard on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Or7WPUtUnRo

This is a meaningless gesture that will accomplish nothing. The only way to deal with a bully is give him exactly what he's asking for. Make sure he gets all the dosage of his own medicine that he can stand. If you make sure that he can't chew or use his hands for several days, even if you lose the fight, he'll never bother you again. Bullies only prey on those who will not stand up for themselves. Stop being a sissy and you won't be bullied anymore. It really is just that simple.

Finally!! I've been begging for something like this to happen . My 13 yr old son was a student at Union 6th and 7th grade center while there he had a student that lives in our neighborhood and rode the bus with him bully him on a daaily basis what's worse is this other child started bullying my son in the 4th grade for 3 straight years he was tormented for his tourettes and how smart he is - This child punched my son in the face breaking his glasses , hit him in the head with a stick , came to my home with a bebe gun trying to shoot my son in the head , and last straw twice in one week he hit my son on school bus finally my son hit the kid back AND then the school wanted to suspend my child !! My son is homeschooled now which is horrible he's happier but he was in all gifted classes and has such a bright future and is terriefied to attend school . I did everything as a parent I have 3 years worth of emails going back and forth between Union and I , I've made police reports AND got a restraining order against the other childs mother since she to was making threats to my son enough is enough - I watched a once happy ,outgoing child become a former shell of himself refusing to go outside to play , getting upset often and his tourettes 9stressed induced ) was thru the roof parents beed held responsible - when we went to court for the PO the other childs father told the judge "your honor it's just words " my son spoke up at 12 and said "excuse me your honor but it's not just words , Hiltlers words caused chaos and devestation Martin Luther Kings inspired a nation - words can make you or break you " that's from my 12 yr old son plese parents talk to your children get them under control no one wants to talk about it or help until it's to late
