Oh yes And I know that they would have. Just last week our 100 lb. 15yo, stopped his twice as big as is friend from seriously hurting a younger boy. This happened in school before school started . The younger boy had punched the bigger ones sister in the month. The bigger boy went to find him. He did, he found him in a classroom, where he preceded to beat the crap out of the kid. Our son heard about it. ran to the classroom. Told the bigger one hey that's enough. When he didn't listen, our son grabbed the bigger kid under his arms, and threw across the room. The bigger started to get up DS stood between the two and said enough. Later DS was sent to the Asst. Principals office where he was told good job, thank you. I have other stories of the older ones doing this type of thing. Oh and as far the Teachers not being in the clasroom. At this time day they are to be in the hallways watching.

I JUST received a phone call from another PTO mom.. A 2nd grader was being picked on by 5th graders on the playground this am before the bell to go in. My daughter (who didn't know the child) went over, got her hand and said why don't you come play with us. The PTO mom said she almost cried at how well my daughter handled the situation. Without fear.. She quietly stood up to the bullies and helped the child being picked on out of the situation.. Now,whether or not my daughter will now be the one bullied for sticking and helping someone, is another question? I am anxious to talk to my daughter when she comes home from school to see how she felt and tell her she did a wonderful thing... Luckily our school has a strong PTO presence. We don't let that stuff fly. We talk to other parents. We encourage the kids to come to us, if not their teacher.
