Bullying is unacceptable and untolerable. Since we were young, we were taught that the behavior is wrong. To intimidate someone and take advantage of them is despicable.
But still, bullying exists and mostly in schools. Those kids who have yet to be taught – or yet to accept – that they shouldn’t be making the lives of other kids a misery.
Mom Allison Davis knows this. As per her blog for Love What Matters, her son Drew was being bullied for years without his school taking the necessary measures to make it stop.
As she explained:
Drew’s bully apparently threatened him on multiple occasions, resulting in Drew being afraid to walk the halls for fear of an attack.
“He quit talking to the adults about it because they never disciplined the bully and it just made the situation worse,” Allison told Love What Matters.
“I sent the school a lengthy email at the beginning of the year begging them to do something because Drew refused to talk to adults at school about it because he knew it would do him no good.“
With the school doing little to help, and Drew of the opinion that he couldn’t trust adults to sort the problem out for him, he knew there was only one thing to do: stand up to his bully.
Allison explained: “When this kid threatened Drew (while on the bus) and then moved on to making fun of his dad and then threatening Jackson, his 11-year-old brother, Drew decided he would quit relying on the school and the adults who are supposed to protect him.
He decided HE would do something.
Three punches and his bully screamed like a baby, his minion friends shut up, and this morning the bully wouldn’t even look at him.
As a parent, I know I’m supposed to be upset with him for resorting to violence or getting suspended, but I’m not.
Not even a little bit.”
Bullying should never be tolerated in society, and though violence is never the answer some bullies simply have to learn the error of their ways.
