Well this is based on the other thread about bullying on here.
As a child I was told, by the teachers, to never fight back or respond violently when bullied, and to just report it to a member of staff. My dad vehemently opposed and ridiculed this policy and told me if someone punches you, you punch back, and that’s the only way you’ll ever gain respect. After experimenting with both methods I found my dad’s worked best, so I fought back.
Has anyone had any similar experiences? Do you think it’s wrong to fight back? Why would teachers ask you to do something which obviously does nothing to solve the bullying?
