    Bullying = assault. Go to the cops.

    Seriosuly guys, its a thread about kids, let kids work theyre issues between them, if a kid can't take it well then meddle, but i don't know, if he doesn't learn to stand up i highly doubt that will build some self confidence. Things like pet killing or law suits or phrases like "Do it sooner before this kid ruins your name for life." Aren't you overreacting a little bit?? Monica Lewinsky ruined Clinton's name, i reeeeeeaally doubt the kid will ruin your name for life, Although...Deadpool in the number 10 of the 2009 edition says it would....mmmmhhh Deadpool it's allways right

    Bullying has serious long term effects and can even lead to suicide. It's fine to help the kid out.

    I agree that pet killing is sick and twisted and should never be done.

    If I were you I'd go into his school myself and show him what its like to be bullied,

    but it might be better if your brother stuck up for himself, Prehaps you could show him a few tricks, prehaps spar with him to build his confordence.

    this is really somthing your brother need to overcome (with your guidence)

    we all had to deal with stuff in school, this is different tho, people go way further on the internet and the laws are different so you can go way further without breaking any laws, thats why here in the USA they passed a bunch of laws against it, if there is nothing you can do to stop him thats frustrating, i would go to the police and ask them if there is nothing you can do to stop it and if there is nothing you can do to stop them ask them for tips about how far you can go without breaking the law, they probably would have some really good advice having experience in this.

    When I was in sixth grade I got bullied a lot. One day I finally grew some balls and got so pissed off I smashed this kid in the face, and gave him a bloody nose. The bulling stopped. But I became the bully after that which I regret.

    i apologize for say the killing of the pet but as the problem is bigger, the solution must be bigger (i sound nazi that way i think).

    No, you sound immature and your advice would do nothing but cause more problems. Hence why we can't have these kind of threads at techPowerUp. :(

    I agree with Greenmousa. When I was a kid "tattling" or "running to the teacher," or "telling your parents" garnered very little respect from your peers, and usually led to further escalations on the part of the bully: "So, you went and told on me, hu?"

    Not to say that I never asked for help, or let my parents or teachers know. On the contrary, in my day and age, unless the other kid was weilding a knife or lead pipe or it was six kids to one, most advice was centered on how to deal with the situation on your own.

    Violence isn't always the answer. Since your brother is not bulling other kids, it is highly probable that he is much smarter than the mentioned scoundrel. I called out a few bullies in front of their peers, girls, etc., letting them know that the only reason they are acting like such a dick is to try and climb up upon someone else's percived smallness. The other kids should also be told that if he wasn't pestering your brother, it would probably be one of them. It doesn't take long for a group of kids to see the reasoning behind this type of exposition, and most will fall behind your bro. It takes as much balls to lay it on the line like this, in front of others, as it does to throw a punch. Besides, cute girls (and the smart ones, too) find these types of actions very attractive.

    The worst that can happen with the aforementoined scenario is that the bully gets so mad/feels so threatened that he takes a poke at your brother. Win or lose, the kids around will see your brother as the bigger person.

    this thread is really not in the spirit of TPU. having the post as purely a way to get ideas on how to bully some other kid, is definately not allowed here.

    Take it to the police, facebook, and the school. report it over and over and over, until they get so sick of you they take action.
