What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it's ok to encourage kids to fight in order to resolve issues?

  • Of course not. Some parents have been raised to intimidate and bully to get their way and they teach this to their children because they don't know better or don't want to "think" things through and find solutions. Lazy thinking leads to this kind of violence, in my opinion. I'll bet the level of violent interaction between parents and children in these households is horrendous.

  • Ummm, NO! It has never been okay and never will be okay.
    The only place I have seen girls fight is on TV. Or in a movie.
    It is not good for ANYONE to fight.Boys or girls. Fighting is low class. If you need to look tough and act tough, you have problem.

  • No, I don't think its okay.. I always tell my girls if you have a problem, tell someone. Don't be violent.

  • Hell no it isn't ok. They should be charged and fined if not tossed in jail.

  • I think it's stupid to publicize it and put it on the news. Now it's going to give some idiots some ideas.

  • Someone saw Fight Club one too many times.

    Just because Brad Pitt is in it doesn't make it a good idea. Just fun to watch.
