Bullying has become a hot issue recently basically because the selfish society we live in has bread nasty kids.Sorry but a concentration on over competitiveness has made us a bunch of bullying backstabbing heathens to a degree. We all know about Amanda Todd who killed herself after months of torment at the hands of bullies and then the were the 8 girls charged with bullying in Ontario. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/2012/10/19/london-bullying-arrests-girls-cyber.html. People are baffled by this but sorry folks I’m not. If you teach your children that it is Okay to fight then they will and not always for the right reasons.
That said I was appalled to read one person that commented on the article basically saying that the problem is that parents aren’t allowed to punish their kids and that is why kids are so mean. Hmm let’s see if you hit your kids then they are less likely to hit others. Sorry but the logic in that escapes me. There is a Bible verse we really need to teach our children and some of our parents.
38 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
Teach this to your kids and then they won’t likely be bullies. Teach this to your children and when they are bullied they won’t feel it is their fault for not being strong enough.It takes more strength to endure than to fight.
