I am a Single Mom of my soon to be 3yr old son and 29 weeks pregnant with another Baby Bo; and personally, I was in awe when several Moms on my page posted Stephanie Metz's article. Especially in today's society with multiple school shootings and 5 year old girls getting accidentally shot on their front porch by 12 year old boys; I refuse to allow my son going around with toy guns shooting people. That being said, I think Stephanie was correct in saying that 'Little Boys will be Little Boys' and they will find something to use as a pretend weapon. I don't even allow my son to watch aggressive cartoons with characters using weapons but he sees other little boys pretend using weapons, and he already understands the concept of fighting. As far as her take on parents dropping everything for their children's sake; while yes I think every parent needs a break from their kids here and there; unless you are able and willing to put the needs of your children before your own; you shouldn't have kids. As far as the bullying issue, I think what she wrote about bullied kids needing to toughen up was shocking! How would she feel if her sons were bullied? Perhaps she doesn't feel strongly about it because she was the bully? Maybe she should watch the bullying documentary on young children and teenagers around the world who have committed suicide due to bullying.'Susie doesn't just call Sally a bitch one day and Sally commits suicide.' Usually children that have been bullied to the point where they commit suicide have been severely rejected and humiliated OR mentally (and sometimes physically) tortured by their peers, over and over again, before resorting to taking their own life. I have a lot more to say about Stephanie's blog but I'll end my take on it with... My Boys are the center of the world and I agree that's how it should be when you have kids!!!

"Perhaps she doesn't feel strongly about it because she was the bully?" I was thinking that, too. Given that she stated "ask me how I know this" (and that she probably got bullied herself), perhaps she provoked when she got bullied by bullying first. If I was her peer and she had called me a "b****", I would have slammed her "up against a locker", too.
