My kid just got suspended from school for a day. The class bully was whacking him in the head last week, and Conner kicked him in the nuts and belted him in the face. They both got a "talking to". Today the bully threw a paper clip that hit Conner in the eye, so he punched him in the gut. My kid's suspended because he "overreacted". Sheesh. I had to come home and lecture him. Secretly, I'm not that mad that he defended himself against a much bigger kid.
