Where were the teachers when the seniors were throwing objects at the freshmen, at the pep isn't this considered hazing. Seniors should set an example for the new classes. Also some students were drinking at the school dance last Friday night. IF the seniors can't behave better, mayBe they should cancel their prom.

suck it up. Kids need to learn their place and work their way up. We've all been through that in school.

It bothers me too. People who are from around here are used to it I guess, kind of a tradition. I don't like it though. However, regarding drinking at the dance....that is unacceptable. Things like this need taken to the appropriate people, school board, principals ect. Nothing good will happen from a discussion on here unless you like being told how stupid you are for feeling like you do....sad but true.

spoken like a true bully or the parent of one or both. This is usually how parents respond until there is a Columbine then they want to know why the school didn't provide more security or protection for their child they are burying at 16 years old. Society has been educated over the years about the harm bullies create in our society and especially in schools. Instead of defending your bully, educate them and mold them at home before its to late. There is still plenty of room in our grave yards for the bullies and "tough people" in our society.

its relatively harmless age-appropriate behavior (the pep rally incident), stop coddling.
your responses are spoken as a new-age parent, and unfortunately we are seeing the repercussions of that sort of parenting with "16 and pregnant", et al. Bottom patting and assuring each child that they are a beautiful golden snowflake is setting unrealistic expectations, false senses of entitlement, and no concept of future planning - because mommy and daddy will always be there to help/protect/save me from myself and life.
you want a strong, confident child? encourage them to stand up for themselves instead of riding in on a white horse for them.

this is a colloquial exchange on a small town message board, not a peer reviewed journal.

When you have nothing to contribute, resort to ad homs or grammar proofreading.

You win, congrats!

Yes because being hit in the head with pennys and batteries and being threatened to have deer piss thrown at them is harmless age appropriate behavior. Idiot. How is a parent being concerned make them a coddler? The issue I see is parents not caring enough. i see 8 year olds dropped off at the football game. If you drive around the kids are not even watching the game they are sitting at the fence line or behind buildings making out. Maybe parents should care more and stop with the let them be attitude, and THEN we wont have a "16 and pregnant" issue.

It takes less effort to just let them go, so they can do their own thing,or be so popular,an it takes alot of effort to step up an be a good parent an role model to your children.We have parents that wont to be a best friend,so they will be liked or cool,so what it the child ends up in jail,dead,on drugs,or pregnant.The Bible says to train up a child in the way it should go,,we are failing our children big time,we should do everything that we can to make sure they are taught respect,honesty the value of work an earning a living so that they grow up to be the best they can be an make us proud.I,for one will do my best to instill in mine everything that they will need to become honest hardworking respectful adults,an if you love your children then you will wont to do the same for yours, you had them, now take care of them.

I did not know about the drinking at the dance but I do know there were several NON SCHS STUDENTS at the dance, I thought the dance was limited to SCHS only, there was even a 7th grader that somehow made it past the chaperones, a homeschooled child, and several that go to another school. So if this can get past the chaperones I can see how the drinking would.

I was almost hazed in an organization that had a long tradition, 177 years at the time. I stabbed one with a scratch awl and fractured anther's skull. He was left in a chronic vegetative state. The jury and judge declared it all self defence. Being hit with pennies and batteries can cause bodily harm and in some scenarios death. I would suggest filing charges and if the police do not take it seriously take their ass out with extreme prejudice. They care nothing about you being blinded or injured.

New age parent, I don't think so, let your child be hit by thrown batteries. Bet you would feel different then. The school should discipline the students involved . As far, as the drinking, if that student had been involved in a accident and gotten killed , how would the school explain that. No, I don't drop my kids off at the ball games, I'm there with them. I do teach them that they are to take response ability for their actions. Let's see what the school does at the dance this Friday night, Let's see what happens with the seniors that threw the batters. I bet nothing ,
It is normal

let the kids have a little fun your children when they are seniors will do the same thing to the freshmen. Don't mean this to be gross but back in the 1980's when I played football and I was a freshmen had to drink some of one of the seniors piss it was a rite of passage. I lived our team won games and I think of everyone of those on my team as brothers.

Yea, no biggie. Just some good old boys drinking good older boys' piss, talking about growing balls. It's just fun and all the guys enjoy it. It's just what guys do in the real world, too. You know...like when your boss makes you drink piss and everyone gets a good laugh?

Teach your children to be tough by hitting them with objects and making them drink piss at home. Teach them that everyone has fun drinking piss, and it is normal behavior in life....Bear Grills does it all the time.

Cheers!
