This is good. It brings a slight smile to my face and gladness to my heart. Revenge can be a noble cause. At least that is what the Vikings believed, before the missionaries ruined them.
Running away, as authorityquery suggested, is only going to make you a bully's favorite play toy. One should learn to protect ones self and family. Myself? Today I spent my morning practicing how to get away from an attacker by taking his hand, breaking his thumb as I drive my arm past it in order to strike with my fingers into his temple, cheek, ear or eye, then breaking the elbow as his head is forced into the ground, studying martial arts.
My god how violent!
I dealt (and so did my younger brother) bullying at school. We didn't need to resort to breaking peoples limbs
. You are a bully as well if you resort to those sorts of methods.
My brothers both had some fights with people at school. In those days no one worried about their son coming home with a black eye after a punch up; and things usually settled down.
I think the person that is being bullied should be the one that deals with the person. However, if there is more than one (a group of bullies; attacking one person) families obviously do need to get involved; but I don't think a full on street war is going to do anyone any good; usually it makes things worse (the cycle of retaliation never finishes).
In my day if there was a group bullying one person; parents discussed it with other parents.
It is so sad that we are encouraging young people to take matters into their own hands; and not confide in their parents for help.
