Do you think children who are bullied should seek outside intervention or stand up for themselves?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 23, 2008
“Stand up for themselves within reason. Otherwise they won’t learn how to live in this world. It’s too tough a place for them to always go cry on someone else’s shoulder.”
“I think it depends on their height and weight ratio compared to the kid who is bullying them.”
“I think they should make someone else aware of the problem first. But if it keeps going on, they should deal with it themselves.”
“I would say stand up for themselves, because, in general, bullies will usually back down if you confront them directly.”
