I applaud any effort to help children learn how to be kind and accountable for themselves when they are cruel. I don't think legal action is often warrented though- we as adults, parents, teachers and school administrators need to help empower the "bystanders" to bullying and help them find a voice to make it socially undesireable to be cruel.

Anyone out there old enough to remember the good old days when the "big brother" took care of the bully problem? There were no where near the number of bullys then because they knew they would get knocked on their a/s/s. But now, no one can touch them so the numbers have grown like terrorist nations under a Democrat president.

WOW, what a great idea. "Make it socially unacceptable to be cruel" I wonder why Rahm didn't think of that. I will create a Czar of Social Acceptability and he will make the following things socially unacceptable eliminating them forever.

Being cruel
Using drugs
Being rich
Burning oil
Listening to Limbaugh
Making a profit
Praying

Thanks EDJ!
