A friend of mine has a 14 yr old son and apparently he confided some very personal information to a female classmate that he thought was a friend. She turned around and told a hand full of other students this information and my friends son has been ridiculed and harassed at school about it. So today he confronted her in the lunch room and they got into an argument and according to him she was laughing at him and calling him something that the kids have all now come to call him though he won't tell us what it is but he says he is extremely embarrassed by this. He told her to shut up and stop telling everyone what he had confided in her and to stop calling him this embarrassing name and when she wouldn't stop, he slapped her in the face. She wasn't hurt, it was just a lite slap but my friends son was suspended from school for a week and the girl got nothing for her part in this.
My friend explained to his son that what he did was wrong and that you never ever hit a girl but he chose not to punish him for it since he has already been punished at school and was humiliated by the girl.
I can see his point in not wanting to punish his son, I wonder what the girls parents think of their daughters behavior though? I am sure she has probably told them she did nothing to provoke it. If you were her mom would you be angry with her for her part or more angry at the boy for slapping her?

While I understand his reasons for being upset, no one truly deserves to be slapped. I know we've all vented how we'd like to slap the morons that we cross paths with, but we are supposed to be more evolved than that. As to the girl, she is just a rotten little bully & deserves to be punished for purposely causing pain to a fellow student. Pain is pain, whether it's physical or emotional. They are both at fault & both deserve punishment.
