You won’t believe the advice a Nebraska elementary school gave students about bullying

Parents of elementary school students in Nebraska are up in arms after fifth grade students at Zeman Elementary School were sent home with a “flyer” outlining some bizarre best practices for dealing with bullies. Concerned parents have called the worksheet, which outlines nine “rules” on how to handle bullies, “ludicrous,” and the school district has since apologized for disseminating the “inaccurate information.” On radio this morning, Glenn ran through the nine rules and couldn’t help but question “how this could possibly happen” in Nebraska.

Check out the full list of rules and their descriptions below:

Rule #1: Refuse to get mad

“I’m waiting for Pat to comment on that [as] a guy who kind of understands,” Glenn said. “I could go the scripture route, but why not go the Yoda route?”

Pat employed his best Yoda impression to react to that particular rule.

“Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering,” Pat said.

Rule #2: Treat the person who is mean to you as if they are trying to help you

“That’s the worst advice I’ve ever heard,” Glenn said flatly. “That’s just stupid.”

Rule #3: Don’t be afraid

Glenn actually found himself agreeing with, to some degree, the description offered for Rule #3, which states: “Since the bully wants to keep winning, they will continue to do things that make you feel afraid.”

“I actually kind of agree with the last sentence,” Glenn said.

Rule #4: Do not verbally defend yourself

“Who wrote this,” Glenn asked.

“So you can’t [defend yourself] verbally or physically, I think, in this thing,” Pat noted.

Rule #5: Do not attack

Since we now know you should be considering the bully that is abusing a friend not an enemy, you absolutely cannot fight back. After all, as per the flyer, “we attack enemies, not friends.”

Rule #6: If someone physically hurts you, just show you are hurt; do not get angry

“Nothing shuts a bully down more,” Stu joked. “So you just curl up in a ball and cry. I think curling up in a ball is too much because that’s protecting yourself. I think maybe you should sit there and sprawl out.”

Rule #7: Do not tell on bullies

Glenn couldn’t help but notice that the advice accompanying Rule #7 actually negates Rule #6.

“Wait. This is great. Listen so this advice. It violates rule number 7. ‘Telling on a bully makes the bully want to retaliate,’” Glenn read. “[But] the one who retaliates is the one who actually started the fight – I learned that in rule Number 5… Who wrote this?”

Rule #8: Don’t be a sore loser

Rule #9: Learn to laugh at yourself and not get “hooked” by putdowns

“That’s the only decent advice given in the whole thing, if you can pull it off,” Pat noticed. “It might piss them off even more, and they might keep smashing you in the face. But…”

In response to parents’ outrage over the “advice,” Lincoln Public Schools issued an apology on its Facebook page, in which they “apologize for any problems or confusion this has caused for students and families.”

“That’s as dumb a worksheet as I’ve ever seen,” Pat concluded. “Do you want your kids going to this school?”

    You know what I was told about bullying? I had that confrontation with a bully when I was 6 and he was 12. I punched him right in the nose, got my butt kicked. Kicked him in the balls the next time I saw him and got my butt kicked again. Hit the SOB from behind a couple times when I had him at my disposal and got my butt kicked again. This went on a while but eventually the idiot got the clue and he made peace with me. It seems he was tired of worrying all the time about what and when the next volley was coming. We never were good friends and several years later I cleaned his clock for the fun of it and said that we are now even. If you let people push you around all the time, you will find you get pushed around all the time. Word spreads.

      My 8 year old pudge of a son was getting bullied about 10 years ago. Spoke to the other kid’s mom. Nothing changed. Spoke to her again. Nothing changed. Third time I went to her house I yelled at her as loud and angry as I could in front of the neighborhood and told her that if it happens again, I’d beat the crap out of her husband. End of bullying.

      Ten years later the parents still hate me. Don’t care. That’s a them problem. Nobody bullies my kids. Period.

        That’s awesome!
        The neighborhood I grew up in, some of the older boys that lived there first would bully my older brothers and my older sister (I was too little to remember, nor did they pick on me because I was always close to mom). My mom tried to talk to their mothers. They just told her, “Boys will be boys.”
        One day years my brothers were bigger, stronger, and tougher than the neighborhood boys. My brothers literally beat the snot out of the three of them. Their mothers came to my mom and complained. She replied, “Boys will be boys.”

        My SO thinks it’s a miracle he was never really bullied throughout his school days. He has always been pudgy, but also tall for his age (regardless of age) with a broad chest and shoulders. He has always been a very sweet guy, but he was just physically big enough to intimidate most. There were a couple of kids over the years that tried to bully him. One of the bullies, my guy accidentally stepped in his foot, which knocked him over. He hit the ground hard. They became friends after that. One or two others, my guy has been fortunate enough to be unshakable by others’ attempts to intimidate and, as aforementioned, he was a big enough kid/guy that no one was tempted to try a physical fight.

      Had a bit of a situation myself when I was younger. I had moved from the South with my parents to Ketchikan, Alaska. My “strange” accent amused my classmates endlessly – which I didn’t mind at all. However (always one of those, ‘eh?) there was one kid… about four years older than me. Of course, he had hit the growth spurt I had not yet hit, and was about twice my size. It got to be a daily thing. I’d hear “Say ‘y’all’ for us! Say ‘y’all for us!” from a distance on the walk home from school, but never could seem to run fast enough to avoid that day’s ass-whuppin’. (Yeah, I’m STILL Southern). Dad, a former pro boxer, had differing views of how to handle a bully, and told me that from that point on, for every time I “let” the other guy whup me, HE too was gonna whup me, figuring I’d finally get fed up enough to stand my ground, take any licks necessary until I had worn him out enough to beat the kid in a fair fight. I, on the other hand, with the size and age differential just did not see that happening. Soooo…. the next day after school, I hopped up on the five foot retaining wall next to the sidewalk and searched around the woods until I found just the thing. A sturdy tree branch about as thick as my wrist, and about two feet long. As soon as my tormentor passed by, I dropped behind him from the retaining wall and commenced to wail on him. Beat that boy until he was on the ground, and continued to beat him until I had snot running out of MY nose. Figured Dad was gonna fire up the old belt because I didn’t stand and square off “fair” with him and I was correct. I was also correct in the fact that was the LAST ass-whupping I ever took from anyone for the rest of the four years we lived there.

        My mom told me the same thing, “If I let this girl bully me, she was gonna whoop me too.” I was a quiet, passive 10 year old, even though I was much taller than the bully. I remember the day the bully girl came up to my desk and meanly said, she was gonna beat me up after school. I did the only thing I could – I stood up at my desk at full height and said I’d meet her outside as I looked down at her and looked directly in her eyes – showed no fear. She never bothered me again.

      I had a similar story, after avoiding the bully for what seemed like forever(maybe a year) I finally stood my ground, and popped him one. He could not believe I hit him back. His older brother came around looking for me and I thought I was going to get it good, but he just laughed and said” I wondered why it took you so long to stand up to him, my brother can be such a punk” I learned then that you challenge a bully, they will look for easier targets.

    This is so idiotic! I was badly bullied as a child in school. I continue to have health problems because of it to this day. I made a point of never learning to use a gun because I didn’t want to go to jail for murder.

      Read the book “I don’t want to talk about it.” It describes the problems adult men carry with them due to childhood bullying. Something to do with trauma during adolescence, just when hormones are surging and brain chemistry is getting permanently anchored. This might help you understand the problems you’re still experiencing. The understanding of this problem is what led me to defend my own so definitively.

    Okay I’m from Nebraska and I had to Google where Zeman Elementary was. It’s in Lincoln, and I believe LPS has apologized for part of this.

    • Anonymous

      Well, I am quite sure they are not happy that the word is out and they had to say something. In the TV interview this morning with KOLN, the Director of Student Services for LPS, Russ Uhring said the following: “The wrong pamphlet was sent out and, you know, some of the information in it was not part of our practices and beliefs about bullying situations would be . . . ” He did NOT say he was sorry or that the information was inappropriate; what he said was it was the “wrong pamphlet” which says to me that he was very well aware that the pamphlet was in the school’s possession. My question is why when it is so obviously in direct conflict with current school policy.

      I am concerned that this release may have been an intentional action on the part of LPS. I wonder if the pamphlet was released as a trial balloon to see if any of the parents would actually notice and raise H*LL about it!!! Perhaps if there was little or no reaction, the rest of the students throughout Lincoln would receive it as well. If anyone attends school board meetings, maybe they could tell us if there is any talk to actually change the policy in regard to bullying in the Lincoln Public School system. I hope you are right, but perhaps you give them way too much credit!

      My first question is whether this policy change is promoted and implemented as a result of the Common Core curriculum being integrated into our Nebraska schools.

    The only thing that will stop a bad kid with a fist is a good kid with a fist.

    My father always told me that I should always attempt to take care of a bully the right way (telling the teachers), but if that didn’t work….. fight back.

    This pamphlet is just giving more power to the bullies. Makes me sick to see that our country is teaching our kids to be weak and submissive. Where is the USA that I grew up with?

    • Loren Schofield

      I taught my kids the same. But I want one step further, the best way to stand up to bullies is to unite against them. That doesn’t help the kid who is being bullied, but if more parents told their kids, “if you see someone being abused, attacked or bullied and you don’t step in to help, then you are no better than the bully. Stand up, get in between them and show the kid who is being attacked that they are not alone. If they are being physically attacked, step in, to defend them with your fist. If you do this I will always have your back.”

      • Boo2

        That’s right! When my middle son was in 5th grade he told me he kept having to miss recess. Why I asked. He told me some kid kept tripping him in class & other BS and when he’d turn around & either try to smack him or yell at him the teacher caught him so he got the punishment. I happened to be one of the ‘lunch ladies’ so she told me she was having a problem with him acting up in class. So knowing what my son told me I asked her what he was doing. She told me about his ‘picking on’ another boy. Well I proceeded to tell her, ” This is your first year of teaching. I can give you some great advice about kids. It takes two! You are catching my son AFTER the other boy has started it. I suggest you develop the simple trick of having ‘eyes in the back of your head’. Then you’ll ‘see’ what is really going on. AND my son will no longer be punished unless the other instigator is too!”
        No more problems. Of course this was 23 years ago & most teachers weren’t know-it-all’s like they are now.

        it is sad, but you are most likely not a lone on the gun thing, their are a lot of us that think the only way to fix the problem is to do it ourselfs, unfortunately some of them think a gun is an answer to how, if we could actualy make schools safer and punish bullies when they happen more would get reported and suspended and less gun violence would happen in schools

        • Oathkeeper32

          That is a last recourse though for many who are fed up with bullying I am sure. But if the bullied are taught to stand up for themselves and how others can band together against bullying then there would be less bullying in schools and kids would feel the need to bring guns to school to settle their debt with their aggressor.

    Letter to Cliven Bundy from Glenn Beck

    Rule #1: Refuse to get mad: treat them with love, Pray for them, try to get the other students to vote them out.

    Rule #2: Treat the person who is mean to you as if they are trying to help youe: It is Federal land, not your’s. The BLM is just enforcing the court orders. All they are trying to do is protect the endangered Tortoise.

    Rule #3: Don’t be afraid: God is on your side, who are you to ask for help from evil reactionaires.

    Rule #5: Do not attack: Whatever you do, do not use your second amendment rights, in a peaceful armed protest. You are going against the will of Nature and God.

    Rule #6: If someone physically hurts you, just show you are hurt; do not get angry: When you are assaulted by freedom loving federal agents with tasers, dogs and intimidation tactics. When you are attacked respond with love just like MLK, Ghandi and Jesus.

    Rule #8: Don’t be a sore loser: We all know that land is not yours. You have not paid your taxes. Your cows have no right to graze on public land. You have lost your case court, don’t be a sore looser. Get rid of your cows, and because that is your lively hood, you will need to go to the nearest welfare office and apply for food stamps and govt assistance.

    Thank you all for listening to my media empire. remember not standing up to bullies may take my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor but I am willing to do that for my supporters and America.

    I live here in Nebraska and I can tell you that in this state, we are going backwards in terms of common sense. We have a Governor who I think has NO idea whatis going on. A parents group , Nebraska Family Forum, composed of Democrats, Republicans and Independents was formed 4 years ago in a successful attempt to repeal a “truancy” law authored by Brad Ashford that defined truancy as ANY absence from school, including illness even if it was excused by a Dr., family events, including funerals, etc and basically threw 3000+ kids into the Juvenile justice system. Why?? Money from DOE, money for every child with their butt in a seat whether they were sleeping in that seat or actually learning was of no consequence, just so long as the seat was filled.. I am betting dollars to donuts that this “anti-bullying” pamphlet is some sort of initiative set down by the DOE and there is money given to schools who embrace it.

    Besides the fact that this is the most asinine thing I have ever heard coming from people in the position of “authority”, what worries me is that the “bully” may not be another kid of the same or similar age……the “bully” may be an adult or older kid who is verbally, physically or sexually abusing one of these children. These people who are supposed to protect them, just validated the abuser and what they have been telling the child….don’t tell on them….don’t get mad….don’t be afraid…it’s your fault….don’t be a sore loser.

      This is exactly what’s happening right here in the good ole’ mid-west! Right here in Ohio, I finally told them to either have a talk with the mothers of the girls or I would. If that didn’t work my grand daughter is going to take self defense classes and bust somebody in the chops!! Amazingly it stopped hmmmm! They tried to tell us the same thing, stay away from them, just ignore them blah, blah, blah, that’s when I got in her face…… yep it’s getting back to normal around here :) I just wonder who they are terrorizing now, poor kid :(

    I have always had one. # 1 = Punch bully in the nose and don’t stop until he cry’s and runs home to mommy!!! Worked 4 times on me with no more bullying in the future! Each time bullies were bigger heavier and taller. All had bloody noses to think about the next time they tried!

  • gabbi4christ

    That is the exact opposite of what I tell my child to do! Seriously? These people want to teach our children to be controlled by others so they will not fight back when the government strips them of all their rights. Completely unacceptable.



  • Karen Christensen Williams

    I only faced two bullies when I was a kid. The first I was about 6 years old, walking home from school, and this girl started teasing me and slapping me. I took my Charlie Brown metal lunch box and bonked her right over the head and ran home. Never got bothered again. Next time was in high school. Girl was calling me the “b” name every time I saw her at school. She would get right up in my face and threaten me. Then after a week of that nonsense, she showed up at my house at 1:30 in the morning screaming for me to come out. I’d finally had enough. I ran outside in my nightgown and all, and proceeded to clean her clock and but good! She never bothered me again, and actually approached me and asked if we could be friends. It didn’t happen, because I didn’t want to be her friend. Lesson: whip the crap out of a bully and they will leave you alone. Forget all that stupid P.C. nonsense.

          • Connor Davenport

            Let me ask you this what will it solve if you fight in a world that is already broken? Breaking something to fix it never works. When you fix a car. Say replacing a alternator do you then do you beat it out with s sledgehammer or just take the bolts out and replace the thing? Believe it or not It is as simple as doing that. You just do not see it. No I do not think smashing a broken world is going to do a dang thing. The only way I would even think of taking a life is to protect others not for a cause but for human life only. That is my breaking point. If I see our government taking people and putting them in cattle cars to be murdered than yes I will fight but not for anything else.

          • Loren Schofield

            Well obviously you never had a stuck starter. You get someone under the truck and hit it with a hammer while you turn the key. The hammer loosens it up and allows it to turn.

            Smashing evil certainly helps the people who are being oppressed.

            By the time you see people being herded onto trains it will be to late. Exactly how many people need to be murdered before you do something? Is it 10, 100, 1000? What’s your number that would make thou not feel icky?

            And your argument is ridiculous. Farmers have to till the ground before something good can grow. Rebuilding a house, the old needs to be torn down to prepare for the new. Steel has to be heated by fire in order to harden and be useful. Yes need to be cut down to make beautiful furniture. Wood needs to be pulped to make paper to print the bible.

            I can go on If you like. Plus you still haven’t said what i am advocating more is the time for violent revolution.

            Well you were the first to catch on to that. Well the reason why I picked him is because he is part Native American like myself and fought for the Revolution like a few of my family did. That is why I fight so hard for peace because when one fights a Revolution in this day of age you never know which side will be co opted. Which faction will gain power in the end. It is not like the old days where people joined in because they agreed. One of the many problems I have with this idea.

    I’ve was bullied verbally & physically by my peers at school from the age of about 8-14. I never stood up for myself ONCE and I realize now standing up for yourself or getting help is the only way to stop a bully. one of my bullies is now one of my closest friends and it’s because I let her know after three years of being a rag doll getting shoved around by her that I was sick of it; she honestly had no idea and that shocked me. no child should EVER sit back and let someone point out their flaws, push them around, or endure any sort of harassment! submitting to a bully just gives them power. what has happened to this country’s school system?!

    I was the new kid in town, 7th grade, for the first week I got picked on a lot, kind of expected back then. But there was one dude 2 yrs older that just wouldn’t stop finally we got in a fight, he fought dirty and I lost, about a week later, walking home from school he biffed me on the ear, I turned and beat the crap out of him with a history book, broke his nose, blacked his eye, and when he hit the ground took the boots to him and messed up his knee. One of his friends wanted to help so I kicked him in the nuts. Now I got in a little trouble for all that. those guys went whining home, lied about the history we shared, and I called them on that, and told their parents the didn’t have a clue as usual. The moral of the story is nobody messed with me again. “You don’t have to stand tall, but, you have to stand up”

    I was bullied a lot as a kid. I was lucky enough to change schools every 4 years, and it got progressively better at each school. Being a girl, it wasn’t physical bullying but emotional and psychological. I thank God for my parents who told me that I was a good girl, that I could accomplish anything I set my mind to, that I was beautiful (I wasn’t, but I wasn’t ugly, either), and that childhood can be brutal. They relayed stories of their own upbringings, which were far more difficult than mine to say, “if I could get through this and reach adulthood without parental help, surely we can help you get though this!” It was awful, and it sucked. Thankfully I had a good support system and good teachers. Dealing with all the agita made me stronger and more resilient.

    We teach our son, now eight, to stand up for himself and not allow himself to be pushed around. After being kicked in the face at a bouncy house place, he scratched the offending boy in the face. We reprimanded him STERNLY to keep his hand out of people’s faces and AWAY from their eyes!! It’s different with boys – they’re so much more physical! We spoke with this other boy’s parents to try to help the two of them coexist (they’re in the same class). It seemed that keeping them separate at recess helped a great deal, as they now get along well in all their other activities.

    Sorry for rambling. People will give you whatever you accept. Only you can determine your limit, and it’s up to you to let that limit be known.

    Ridiculous! My son was getting bullied by a Bosnian kid at his High School. My son wasn’t afraid of the kid, just didn’t want to get in trouble for fighting. I told him to defend himself and I’d handle the consequences. The only problem was, when the time came, my son agreed to meet after school to settle things instead of decking the punk in the hallway when he got shoved. This made my son equally in the wrong and he was charged with disturbing the peace. I stood up for him and the charge was dismissed, but could have left a mark on his record.

    A few nights later, the same kid darted out in the road in front of my truck on his skateboard. I aked my son if he wanted me to take him out (wink wink…We had a good laugh)

My son was a good kid and was scared that he would get in trouble for fighting. You know “zero tolerance” (translated as “Zero Common Sense”!). I told my son that if he ever STARTS a fight, his butt would be mine. But, if he had to END a fight, I would back him up all the way!

    I don’t think anyone saw my hilarious satirical letter from Glenn Beck to Cliven Bundy, I wrote shortly after this was posted. Either people didn’t see this or I just think I’m so much more funny than other people.

    Letter to the family of Justina Peletier from Glenn Beck

    Rule #1: Refuse to get mad: treat them with love, Pray for them, wait until the elections and try to vote in representatives who see your side. If you can’t get them in 2014, just wait 2 years and try again in 2016.

    Rule #2: Treat the person who is mean to you as if they are trying to help you: The Boston childrens Hospital, only has the best interests of your daughter. They are highly educated, and spent many many years in higher academia, so they are much more intelligent than you, and the state knows much more than you, what is best for your daughter and your family.

    Rule #3: Don’t be afraid: God is on your side.

    Rule #5: Do not attack: Do not retaliate against them. Remember the message of Ghandi, MLK and Jesus.

    Rule #6: If someone physically hurts you, just show you are hurt; do not get angry: I know it seems like your daughter is doing so much worse now, after being in the states care for over a year but whatever you do, don’t get angry, and tell Justina to not let them know she is hurting or getting worse.

    Rule #7: Do not tell on bullies: Do not ask for help from anyone. Their may be a 10-15 percent of them, who aren’t nice, or may disagree with me. Any attempt to recruit help from anyone except me, and I will attack you, for not being good Christians. Just remember to buy your guns from cheaper than dirt, and prepare for the apocalypse which is coming any day now by buying gold and prepackaged food and seeds.

    Rule #8: Don’t be a sore loser: There have been numerous attempts before multiple different judges. You lost, you have no rights to your daughter. You need to accept it, and when she’s 18 if she chooses to get to know you, then it will be her choice.

    Thank you all for listening to Mercury one. remember not standing up to bullies may take my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor but I am willing to do that for my supporters and America, as long as my Media Empire is not negatively affected.

      Letter to Cliven Bundy from Glenn Beck

      Rule #1: Refuse to get mad: treat them with love, Pray for them, try to get the other students to vote them out.

      Rule #2: Treat the person who is mean to you as if they are trying to help youe: It is Federal land, not your’s. The BLM is just enforcing the court orders. All they are trying to do is protect the endangered Tortoise.

      Rule #3: Don’t be afraid: God is on your side, who are you to ask for help from evil reactionaires.

      Rule #5: Do not attack: Whatever you do, do not use your second amendment rights, in a peaceful armed protest. You are going against the will of Nature and God.

      Rule #6: If someone physically hurts you, just show you are hurt; do not get angry: When you are assaulted by freedom loving federal agents with tasers, dogs and intimidation tactics. When you are attacked respond with love just like MLK, Ghandi and Jesus.

      Rule #8: Don’t be a sore loser: We all know that land is not yours. You have not paid your taxes. Your cows have no right to graze on public land. You have lost your case court, don’t be a sore looser. Get rid of your cows, and because that is your lively hood, you will need to go to the nearest welfare office and apply for food stamps and govt assistance.

      Thank you all for listening to my media empire. remember not standing up to bullies may take my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor but I am willing to do that for my supporters and America.

    There has always been bullying, and most likely always will. However, since this stupid zero tolerance has come into play, it has escalated. I told my kids that if they were picked on, to defend themselves. My son wasn’t ever able to follow through on that, but eventually grew big enough to stop the bullying. My daughter on the other hand, did fight back. The school called me because they had a report that she had punched someone. They actually laughed about it because it was so unlike her personality, but felt they had to bring it to my attention. Oddly enough, she wasn’t ever bullied again.
    Maybe fighting isn’t the answer t everything, but being able to defend yourself without fear of recrimination should be encouraged.

    If you don’t fight back, make noise, or tell anyone, then teachers don’t have to deal with the problem. These type of rules flow from a teacher-union mentality. Do what’s best (or easiest) for the teacher, not what’s best for the child.

      too true, if the student tells a teacher the teacher is obligeted to do something, if she doesn’t or if what she does doesn’t fix the problem it could cause problems, and we wouldn’t want to cause problems. so lets just let our kids suffer quietly, because that way they learn that the world is a hard place to live and that the government can do what they want and you souldn’t try to fight back.

    Bullying 101.

    Rule #1. Place 2-3 punches to the center of bullies face.

    Rule #2. When bully grabs his hopefully broken nose with both hands a good swift kick to his special place will remind him who’s in control.

    Rule #3. While bully is curled up in a fetal position screaming in agony, stand over bully, whip out tally whacker, and empty your entire bladder on bully.

    Rule #4. Before leaving thank bully for allowing you the opportunity to demonstrate exactly what happens to people who “f#$k” with you, and reassure him that the next time wont be so pleasant.

Right after we hung up, his dad called back and asked what I was calling about, so I told him. That was the last of the problem. Incidentally, a few years later those two boys became step-cousins when his grandpa married my mother.

  • Bill Norris

    If they apologized so quickly, I question their motive in the first place. Who was responsible for writing and approving this? Why even write it if you’re not going to stand up and defend the reasons why you believe this non-sense. To not speak out and defend yourself, speaks volumes. We know you’re liberal…that goes without saying. I’ve told my boys if they got punched for no apparent reason, here’s what you do. Assess the situation quickly (to make sure you aren’t fighting more than one person) then punch him back harder. There’s no rules in street fighting, so make sure the bully knows he picked on the wrong person. Tell him you won’t go easy on him next time. My boys are trained and know how to defend themselves. This is life benefit they can carry with them through life. It’s a great confidence booster too.

    When the school calls to tell me what happened, I’ll make sure to show up with presents celebrating the fact that he defended himself. Our young men are being imasculated at a much faster pace than ever before. My boys WILL NOT be.

Kind of like Obama, Pelosi and Reid expect all of you mindless, weak, slavish lemmings ( democrat voters ) to be.

    You need to read the various comments here and then consider this: Whether it’s a home invasion burglary, or one nation’s soldiers invading another country, the only cure is to stand up for yourself. Neutralize the would-be thieves, rapists, killers in your home with the guns they don’t want you to have. Or as the United States has discovered and Ron Paul points out – when the US sends armed forces into other countries they WILL strike back. It sucks to be a victim.

    Don’t tell on bully’s, why cause it’s too much trouble for you to deal with them? I don’t know who put this work sheet together, but they should not be allowed to work around children ever!! They have no idea how they interact.

  • Misty

    My child was horrifically bullied for over a year and half, and was suspended when the bully turned physical and he defended himself. Our country is FAILING our kids when it comes to bullying. Over 20 children witnessed this daily for over a year, yet NOBODY reported it. THIS FLYER INFURIATES ME!!!!

  • Chainstaya~

    Then don’t use your basic human emotional tools that were designed to help us experience for ourselves life w/the senses given that we adapt in this earthly realm. And how to deal w/life one-step & day at a time…how do they think we evolved into intelligent beings thus far? If being a robot & not being able to decipher our own senses then lets go back to the cave shall we? I said/posted that learnt behaviors of religious/cults society’s will only develop into harmful emotions since they can’t have any emotional growth from experiences of freedom & choices, which develops into confusing, folding into anger(>;<’ then hate festers into wars & devastation of all people/places/things…Anger is one letter short of danger! I was referring to the radical religions, when I post that about a thousand times…not from a free nation & of free choices, like our BILL OF RIGHTS & THIS IS EXACTLY WHY WE MUST PROTECT IT! Religions of any sort is not who anyone is, it’s a labeled used to describe events, places & things, not people. The human animal is just that…but as all animals living on this planet its ran by the spirit that guides, right/wrong & common fken sense! Healthy growth is not making mistakes; they are learning tools…if one repeats they’re injurious harmful actions, they there will have their results…continually w/a 3 folds over smack down on themselves period! Bullies will back down when confronted, they get a false sense of security when offended party walks away instead of nipping it in da bud & defend yourself or they will feel power over you…if bigger then you & you feel ur in harms way, then act crazy and/or simply tell em u don’t have time for this childish animalistic BS… let the owner of the selfie learn their way…AND that’s YOU-and get advice from pro’s who know! Know that you are not your name/s they call you…and know to grow w/all of life’s NOTHING LAST FOREVER! These interferences from others involving themselves of views w/out wisdom, knowledge or experience, is the question y’all should be asking them, not taking their advice, that’s another danger stranger analogy to be BEWARE OF!

    Don’t worry. I’m a Nebraskan and know there has been a great outcry against such stupid advice. Administrators have issued an apology for putting out bad advice.

    Finally one day, I stood up for myself. I was tired of being someone’s target.

    This stuff is insidious. Why do all those angry parents never do anything? The least they could do would be to I’d the peeps and hold them up for public ridicule and/or force the school board to terminate the peeps.

    When I lived in Hawaii, I was told that if a shark swam up to me, I should punch him in the snout on the first pass. They don’t like to fight for their food, like bullies.
    Once when I was small, some big kids would tease me everyday when I walked home from school. One day I told my older sister. She took me back to where they were and decided who the leader was and got in her face, There may have been a skirmish. After that the sidewalks cleared before me.
    One more story, I have a severely disabled granddaughter. One day her oldest brother was at school (middle school), and he saw a kid picking on a handicapped kid. He walked up to him and kicked his a$$. He was suspended. That night we took him out to dinner to celebrate his heroism.

    Pure nonsense, though probably the kind of advice you’d get from some sissy-boy like Obama, who was probably beset by bullies his entire life — until he got someone manly enough to fight his battles ….Michelle.

    When you are bullied, you fight back hard and dirty, doing as much damage as you can. Few bullies are going to look for a repeat performance if they know they’re going to have to pay a price for it.

    Worked in every new neighborhood I moved into over the years. You just have to get past the pansy victim mentality and figure out how to get in a couple of good licks, even if you have to start carrying a big rock or half a brick in your pocket to even the odds.

    I guarantee this was written by a committee appointed to come up with a CYA policy for the school system to put in a handbook so they can show they have addressed the problem. The committee also probably hasn’t been full-time in a real classroom for years, if ever.

    Typical stupid school administrators and teachers….

    They advertise “gun free zones”, advertising anyone wanting to harm someone with a gun can find plenty of easy targets inside. Then they can’t understand why there’s so many incidents of shootings at schools.

    Then they come up with “zero tolerance policies”, which basically means they’ll victimize anyone who’s been victimized, they’ll suspend anyone who’s been attacked by a bully, if anyone is victimized by someone else both parties are charged and it’s put on both their records…

    Absolute absurdity… again and again demonstrating the illogic of the Left…

    Now, they put out these stupid guidelines. Treat someone who’s attaching you as if he’s your friend…??? Okay, lets take all the teachers and administrators outside and punch them in the face a few times and see how much they enjoy such friendliness themselves.

    As usual, Leftists love to make rules for others, love to tell others how to behave, but when the shoe’s on the other foot then they’re the ones screaming that “it’s just not fair…!” They want the rules to apply to everyone else, but the same rules never apply to them, do they….?

  • Fior Gael

    Wow! Them “Nebraskians” sure like their S&M to continue in the schools. Read a lot of the comments and agree with them. The bigger picture demands turning the other cheek…the bigger picture is about adults. Children need to learn to respect the rights of others and how can they learn to respect the rights of others if the others lay down in front of them to be beaten and kicked literally and figuratively? I had those experiences of fear of bullies and bullying in school because I never wanted to get hurt. I learned that I regretted not standing up for myself so many times and allowing people to do what I hated them doing to me and others. I was afraid…these 9 suggestions sound like common core curriculum solutions to me. Do not allow children to disrespect each other, there are consequences for that. Ask Israel about consequences to aggression. It does not hurt as much to be hit as to be humiliated and not fight back.

  • Anonymous

    You only need two “rules” with bullies. If they’re attacking you verbally, ignore or laugh at them. If they’re attacking you physically, give no warning, haul off and hit them as hard as you can right in the mouth. You will not be bullied again, they go for prey that won’t defend itself. Pacifisim does not work.

  • John

    Just two more years until the student loan, housing, government debt, and stock market bubbles pop and we have hyperinflation… I used to be afraid of it, but more and more and the older I get in this POS society we now have, it may sound sick, but I can’t wait to see the looks on these peoples faces when everything is taken away from them and the impossible happens. The moment these idiots realize their actions have consequences, everything gets balanced out, and now they are literally starving. Just to everyone with a brain in their head, buy ammo, silver (better return to gold due to the scarcity ratio balance out it recieves during currency collapses), canned food/water, and antibiotics. There is no hope at this point for the country and it kills me to say that.

    At the time my son was 7 years old and we would have a neighbor, who was my son’s classmate, over who out weighed my son by at least 20 pound and when he came over our house he manhandled my son because he was into the wwf. So this went on for weeks and since I studied Jiu Jitsu for many years in Hawaii, I signed my son up for jiu jitsu classes. After three months of lesson my son’s friend was over, and I suggested that we have a wresting match in the living room and I would be the referee. After about three minutes our guest was crying, not because my son hurt him but he was frustrated and humiliated. My son submitted him three times with a choke, an arm bar, and a kimura. Obviously after this point my son’s friend had a whole different respect for my son and the bullying stopped. They are now best friends. My suggestion to any parent he has a child that is being bullied, teach them that the can be proactive in protecting themselves and once the word gets out, the bullying will stop. My son’s jiu jitsu teacher is a black belt which takes about 12 to 14 years to get. So I not only have the respect of his expertise, but he also has classes for the students how to handle bullies and what I like is the first steps are non confrontational. Now my son is known as the protector around his schools helping other children from being bullied.

    Okay, I’m not sticking up for this list, since it’s pretty lame-o, but I will offer my thoughts on item #2.

    A classmate who was being mean once told my 2nd grader that his breath stunk (which it probably did, but that’s not the point). So my son pushed the kid and got in trouble. I told my son that next time he should just say, “What, I have bad breath? Thank you so much, do you have any gum or a breath mint?” and to just go overboard with the melodrama.
    The idea was to completely throw the kid off his game (and I thought it would be funny). After all, what would the kid say if he was trying to be mean and then the victim acts like he’s so grateful and even asks for help? I think the kid would have been dumbfounded and had nothing to say in response.

    Apparently, my son never had a chance to try this out, so I don’t know how well it will work.

    I have 2 instances I’d like to share, and they both worked. First; when I was in Jr High I did what my father told me he did to a bully. The bully challenged me to a fight after school and having peer pressure I had to show up. When I did show up he tried taunting me verbally and I kept silent. Then I let him have the first punch. He hit me square on the jaw. I stood my ground and said, “Again.” so he hit me again, almost the same spot, then I said, “Is that all you’ve got?” then he hit me again on the other side. Though it hurt like the dickens, I still showed no sign of pain and said, “If that’s all you’ve got then you’d better stop now, I’ve had worse.” This baffled him and he backed down and never bothered me again. The second instance was in High School, this guy was tougher and meaner than I could ever be and really gave me an ass-whoopin’. The thing is though, every time he’d beat me to the ground, I got right back up and stood my ground. After about the 5th or 6th time of getting up and continuing, he realized he’d never win no matter how bad he beat me, because I wouldn’t give up. He thew up his hands, palms outward and said something like “I’m done, I don’t want to kill this kid.” or something to that effect, trying to save face in front of the crowd. I can’t remember the exact words clearly because it was 20 years ago :p. Anyway, he never messed with me again, nor anyone else after that. The only way to win against a bully is to either give them the ass-whoopin’ they were gonna give you, or stand your ground and make it not worth it for them to mess with you. Anything else is best quoted by Wesley Snipes in Demolition Man when his character said, “I am sorry to say the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself.”

    I started being bullied in third grade. My mom told me to walk past them with my nose in the air, and act as though I did not hear them: just ignore them. It got worse.
    When I was in the fifth grade, after 2 years of being bullied. One morning I emptied my Wild Bill Hickok lunch pail of food, and filled it with rocks. Next time they surrounded me to bully me THAT day, I spun around in a circle, ready to whack anyone that got close to me. After that they left this cowgirl alone.

    My mother told me all these things when I was horribly bullied as a child/teen. I did all of those things above and suffered their abuse for a decade. My brother was also bullied. At one point, a guy shoved his face into a water fountain. My brother turned around and punched him in the nose. The guy never picked on him again.

    My story had a happy ending when I learned to think for myself, became a third degree black belt and joined the military where I have had a successful career. My pacifist mother would have had a better chance of having a child who was not a soldier if I had been allowed to fight back as a kid.

    As a kid I used to walk down the alley to school, and along that path was a house that had a HUGE 150lb Rottti mix, that lived behind a 4 foot fence. The dog hated every kid that walked down this alley, except me. I had spent several years getting to know this HUGE beast of a dog. When I go into my first fight with the bully in my school it was in this same alley across from the dogs house. After I was tackeled in the start, for the first time ever, that dog jumped the 4 foot fence to protect his friend. The 2 of us CHEWED him up after that, and I earned my respect. The BEST thing that happened was when I got to know the old man who owned the dog, after returning him. He was a GREAT WWII war vet, that educated me a whole lot on the sad ways governments corrupt us.

    • KJinAZ

      In th Obama administration my guess is 50% or more of the budgets are now a FRAUD.

      Just look at the Rancher story. Why are we paying the Feds a fee that only ends up costing consumers to protect a Tortise that doesn’t need protection? The EnviroWACKO’s on the government what to make all ranching end for food stock. They are foing it through fees and backdoor taxes, like grazing fees, which only cost consumer’s more money.

      Until the STUPID people in our world wake up to the fact that ALL the Taxes/Fees the government keeps imposing end up being paid by consumers, the meek will continue to hand the world over to those who wish to destroy the strength of our rule of law.

      They are willing to allow the criminal illeagls to become citizens, that will cost us all money and jobs, just for the hope of more new voter. That IS called Treason in MY book
