Well, here’s one way to take care of a bullying situation at your kid’s elementary school – file a restraining order against the alleged bully of your kid, which is exactly what Stephen Feuder has done in Sacramento. Feuder claims the school wasn’t taking enough action when his nine-year-old son complained about being bullied, pushed around, and punched in the face at Rolling Hills Elementary School, so he went down to the Sheriff’s Department and filed a restraining order against alleged nine-year-old perpetrator. Is this what we’ve come to, parents?
Growing up, I had my fair share of bullied. I was extremely tall for my age with a face full of metal braces and I think I was still playing with dolls at age twelve or thirteen. I wasn’t exactly a cool kid. My parents never had to come down to the school and complain about me being bullied, but I was taught that to deal with a bully you either ignore them until they get bored and go away, tell a teacher, or if they hit me that I should punch them right in the throat. It scares me that bullying has gotten so bad that instead of any of these tactics working we actually have to file restraining order, but I guess a parents gotta do what a parents gotta do. The issue here is that the restraining order may not even be valid because according to CBS Local, the restraining order may end up being null and void. It has to be served within five days, but the school district won’t release the boy’s name or address to Feuder.
I don’t know if this is the best way to deal with a bully, but what I do hope is other parents who read about this case and suspect their own kid may be bullying someone get a little bit paranoid over this and address bullying with their own kid. We need parents to start being a little bit more aware of how their own precious little snowflakes are treating other kids, and maybe this case will make them scared their own kid will get such dramatic action taken against them.
