Going after bullies and teaching kids that bullying is wrong is not coddling.
I think, though, also teaching kids to stand up for themselves and others in a positive way would be a good thing to add to all the "bully is wrong" teaching.
Telling kids to go to an adult when it happens isn't helping the situation when it's going on. They need the tools on how to deal with a real bully when it's happening.
Like it or not, preteens and teenagers have a lot of angst. You can say "get over it" but they are full of hormones and feelings that they are just not mature enough to know how to fully handle it all.
There's being bullied, and there's being a cry baby. "Wah, Johnny hurt my feelings, wah." That's life, learn to get over it. I might even make the argument that getting bullied is GOOD for kids.

So... weekend plans? Superbowl plans?
I'm taking a vacation day on Monday. Not that I'm planning to get wasted for the Super Bowl (although if there was ever a time & event to start smoking pot, this would be it), but my vacation rolled over in August and I haven't taken a single day yet. Gotta start using them.
Tonight: maybe go out for dinner, maybe order in. I've been craving Indian...

Sat: Ice skating lessons in the AM, and if we get the snow they're predicting, sledding in the afternoon. We're all about those winter sports.:D

Sun: We will watch the Puppy Bowl. I could care less about football. Blasphemy, I know.

Have fun on your vacation day! Sleeping in is the best.

My mother wants to drag me to church for their "superbowl"-some kind of soup tasting deelio, and meet the new minister, but we're supposed to get like 12 inches of snow on Sat, so I might not be going anywhere

Haircut should take 1/2 tops. Take a 1/2 hour out of the day and get your haircut.

You can still help the person move.

I frickin' love good teachers. Most parents don't thank them, appreciate them or pay them enough.

Ugh, don't fall for the church Super Bowl. The booze is way watered down.

Hello

I'm not sure exactly why, but I would like to hang in here on occasion. I'll admit I knew absolutely nothing of the place until I saw a link and it concerned an individual I kind of like out here so I came where I was lead.

I'll admit, I've not even attempted to read much of what is in here. I saw the icons above my post and didn't feel at all welcomed (not sure if I got reply), and I know how folks think of newcomers entering a place like this where you are all pretty familiar and comfortable with one another. I'll admit this is a sock -- haha and there's quite an interesting story behind it, but I don't know you ... you don't know me.... Ahhh,mmm so, what do you say?

'

Are ya'll excited for the Superbowl Countdown? I am, but I'll admit,... I've not one clue yet where I'll spend it. I do know it will require an overnight bag.
O.o

Hope you all have a great weekend and stay safe out there. This is a dangerous holiday and we should already know that after 46 years.

;-)

Ciao

We love newcomers. But sometimes they get scared and run for some reason. Welcome! I'm edog and I'm naked.

Thank You ... and you are almost too funny, in a naked beast sort of way.

Well,... I know why we run. When we are new, we don't know the rules yet, others wonder, believe and start accusing us of being a sock of an old time poster and then they get paranoid in certain cases and accuse us of being ... alllllll that. DANG !

I came in as gray Trish and listened for a month or better to those wondering why I wasn't registered,.. yet I managed to fit in as well as I did.

I'm a traveler and if we don't learn how to fit in, it get's to be quite a sad and lonely existence on this journey. Ahhh, I'm speaking RW as opposed to this game out here. Haha

Everybody is welcome. Some people can't help themselves putting pictures on posts. It goes back to their childhood or something.
