Now we’re talking.
To me, this is where we will start to see real change. I have mentioned before, that of the two major incidents that our family has had to deal with at our high school, one with each kid, *both* resulted in an arrest of the perpetrator, a trial, a guilty sentence and a penalty imposed.
And in both cases, the perpetrator changed their attitude. Changed the way they behaved.
Consequences matter. Consequences make a kid change, and they make a bully’s family understand the severity of the situation. Nothing like a lawsuit to bring it home for ya.
In what could be a precedent-setting case, the parents of a 14-year-old girl have filed a civil suit over alleged classroom bullying. They are seeking $215,000 in damages from another teenager.
