New Hampshire bans dodgeball! What kind of crap is that?? They fear that it reinforces and leads to bullying. You might as well ban every sport for heavens sake. I personally don't think the problem is any of these things they take away. It's parents who don't know how to be parents. You are supposed to install bravery,courage, self respect, respect for others no matter what they look like. You are supposed to teach that you should treat others as you want to be treated. Simple as that. Stick up for those who are being bullied. It has and always will bother me when I see someone who thinks they are superior treat someone else deemed "lesser" badly. There is no reason for it. I have always chose to speak up for those who are afraid or don't have a voice and I one day when i have children i will teach them this.
I have a love hate for those bullying commercials. I love how real they are because I think it's important to see but I hate the cruelty caused by children. Let them have a childhood. We need to stop making life a competition. But I believe in what those commercials say. DON'T BE JUST A BYSTANDER! In anything you see. I hear story after story of people being raped or beat up or houses where you hear chaos and no one bothers . It's not your problem right? How can you really feel ok when you might have been able to stop something horrinble from happening ?! Our lack of human responsibility sickens me. Just wake up be a voice for someone who can't have one. Encourage others and teach your children common sense and moral responsibility. We take these things through life.
