When the kid came and asked the father, “Dad, I’m cleared now. A kid has been bullying me and hitting me for months. Can I kick his a**?”, he agreed to it because he honestly did not think he would go through with it, but he did, and he was suspended from school for three days!
Bullies are everywhere and they pick on the weak. That's basically how it works because they know that the weaker ones won't stand up to them. These bullies enjoy the fear and get a kick out of it, but how much is too much? A father took to Reddit to share a confession about how he gave his son permission to stand up to his bully and beat his a** if need be. User OdinsBHole wrote: My son was born with a condition called Pectus Excavatum. In layman’s terms, his chest is sunken in. His condition was so bad that he only had two and a half inches between his sternum and his spine and his heart and lungs were bruised because of it.

Bullies usually tend to pick on peers with disabilities or illnesses because they know that they won't be able to fight back. In December, he had surgery to correct it and they put two nickel bars in his chest to give it space and train his bones to grow correctly. About three weeks after his surgery, a kid punched him and dislodged the top bar and he had to have another surgery to put the bar back in place. The kid has been through a lot. It's got to be painful, and what was the other kid thinking? Does he not have an ounce of regret?
Well, the doctor cleared him for most activity last week, just no skateboarding or bike riding but he could now lift his backpack and go hang out with friends and play pick up non-contact sports. Unbeknownst to me, a kid in his class had been bullying him all semester. And because my son was afraid of getting hit again, he just took it. Well, the evening he was cleared he came to me and said, “Dad, I’m cleared now. A kid has been bullying me and hitting me for months. Can I kick his ass?” Honestly? I would let him if he were my son!
Well, my son isn’t really a fighter. He’s fought with his brothers but never anyone else, and he’s always gotten his ass kicked. So I just figured he was just talking. But this is the first I had heard about the bullying and I was concerned. I could tell he was distressed about the situation so I told him to knock the fu**er out. He just nodded and went to his room. The father definitely wasn't prepared for what was going to come next.
Now, his older brother is s tough SOB. He had a traumatic brain injury two years ago and he missed a year of school so he’s in the same grade and coincidentally takes the same class. I talked to him about it and told him to handle it but don’t get in trouble. He told me that the kid walks in every day and punches my son in the head. I asked him why he allowed that to happen and he said he wanted his brother to get tough and once he was tired of getting hit, he would do something about it. It does quite make sense if you think about it.
While I kinda agree with his thinking, I instructed him to handle it without getting in trouble. The next morning I took them both to school then drove back home to get my younger daughter who goes to a different school that starts later. On the way to take her to school, my wife calls me. “Have you taken xxxxx to school yet? Well, after you do, go pick up your son. He got in a fight.” I just assumed it was my oldest son.
Well, well, well, he wasn't prepared for this, not yet. Imagine my surprise when I walked into the school office to see my younger son with a grin from ear to ear! He was beaming! He pointed to another kid sitting in a chair holding an ice pack on his face. “I warned him.” I was so proud. He had walked into class, sat down, and the kid popped him in the head like always. My older son got up to intervene and before he could, my son decked the kid with one punch. He said the kid was bawling on the floor and that it was the best day of his life. He got suspended for three days.
But how is it fair that the kid got suspended for three days for standing up to the bully when the bully walked around freely all this while? The bully punched my son in the head every day. Once he found out my son couldn’t do anything about it, he just kept on. My son wasn’t the only one he bullied, either. Also, the bully’s brother came to my son later and told him that he had warned him once my son COULD fight, that he was going to get his ass kicked.
