This is sick, every school has programs, announcements..anything you can think of about bullies and how a bully can hurt the soul of another child...and we still have this..you have to wonder...what the kids parents are like, you can't tell me the attitude of the parent is not seen in the child.

Most programs do not work on a bully, they are not sensitive misguided souls. Enforcement of rules, threat of incarceration in a juvenile facility with tough love and rules may work. Bullies are often the product of issues in the home, but schools cannot be held responsible for that , therefore law enforcement should be. I for one think LMMS and Mrs. Vincent and her staff are great people who care and they do not tolerate bullies.

There will always be bullies I am sad to say. Just assess some of the commentary left by theoretical adults on the range of topics here on the "Patch". Belittling each other, foul language, rudeness, nastiness and blatant disrespect is evident. When there is a disagreement, the insults come fast & furious. Many of them hurtful. Any wonder that kids will be bullies? I don’t wonder at all. Peace.
