like most of my threads i want to hear your opinion before posting mine. this allows me to hear an opinion instead of the bashing of mine.
if two kids got a problem, they can wait till schools out, and take it somewhere else and fight it out.diomedes2012 said:like most of my threads i want to hear your opinion before posting mine. this allows me to hear an opinion instead of the bashing of mine.
people shouldnt use violence in the first place, your right. but if some bully is using it to get their way at school, the most effective way to stop them is to beat the crap out of them.BodiSatva said:Fighting should not be "allowed" anywhere except in sport...Boxing...Karate...etc.
Any acknowledgement that fighting is a viable alternative in settling disagreements instead of communicating through by discussion or non-violent means will and is misinterpreted as acceptance…
There is no fine line.
If kids want to fight in a controlled environment their parents should sign them up for karate or something. I'm not about to endorse street fighting in schools. A child could get hurt. Furthermore neither I or my husband have been in a physical altercation in our adult lives. Adults generally don't duke it out. Schools should set this example by not allowing children to street fight. Teaching kids they can punch someone sets them up for jail time later in life. I don't see the benefit. Most adults function in our society without fighting. Do we want to raise a generation of children that does otherwise?diomedes2012 said:let me paint a scenario.
say a school allows two people to fight in a certain area of the school designated for fighting. then say that one of the two is the kid that is oh lets say getting picked on. they both agree too a fight to just end it because the "weaker" kid is actually able to fend for himself but doesnt really like fighting because he will get in trouble. this allows for the chance to defend himself.
but anyways what if two people were able to fight in a semi-controlled way. so that no one else would get hurt or no one else would jump into the fight. then say that both people agree. its actually a very complicated matter.
as for those people who say "talking it out is the only way it should be done" i have to disagree. there are cases where talking only makes things worse. especially when a student goes to the teacher or principal and reports getting picked on. say the kid is kicked out of school for a few days. well sooner or later he is going to be back with a vengance. fighting is a part of life whether it is verbal or physical. in fighting it isnt about how strong you are its how you use what you have. please contradict me so i can clarify my ideas in a more concentrated form. its not a very simple matter to discuss.
