Send those little... 'children' to our farm for the summer, they'll go home singin' a new tune about what happens behind the woodshed.

I am so so so glad my parents instilled the values of respecting one's elders in us while growing up. I've done the same with my daughters.

I'm waiting for the parents of the children to blame either the bus monitor or school for "precious Billy's" bad behavior...

Parents these days really suck at parenting.

That lady deserves a free pass to kick the living **** out of those ignorant kids! Kids nowadays have no fear. Government has taken parental rights away. This lady's son took his life ten years ago. One of those piece of **** kids commented on how her kids should kill themselves for knowing/being related to her. These kids are our future........ugh

This is actually local news for me, unfortunately. Yeah, it sucks, and the kids-well, they need their back porches painted red. BUT, one mom, interviewed.....well...."poor little ........ he was just influenced by his friends....."? Sorry lady-now is your chance to teach him before he does something worse "influenced by his friends".....

As bad as the kids are, and as much as their behavior needs to be addresses, I am sorry, but who is supposed to be the adult here? What exactly is the "monitor" hired to do? Why are they questioning why the driver didn't stop the bus? My question is this: WHY in gods name didn't this lady, whose JOB IT IS TO CONTROL THE KIDS ON THE BUS, get up out of her seat and tell the driver to pull over and call the principal? Why is it everyone elses' fault? Sorry, but when you take a job as a bus monitor with Middle school kids, you should know somewhat that it is not going to be all rosey.

What ever happened to respecting your elders? if i was still in highschool and i was on that bus i can tell you those little douchers would be yes ma'aming her and licking her feet. that is no bueno. i was almost ready to cry for her myself. nobody deserves that.

I hate teenagers......they are the best birth control I know of. Kids are sort of like kittens and puppies.....cute, but then they grow up, and as humans, our children send WAY too much time in the "inhuman" stage called teens.

SO glad mine are past that.

agree that as a monitor that she and or the bus driver should have stopped this behavior but if you think about it what punishment will these kids get by having the principal called... oh little billy was peer pressured so detention for him or maybe a suspension for the others blah blahblah.. those arent displinary actions anymore because the kid goes home and gets a few days free vacation of school because mommy and daddy are not home and when they do get home the biggest punishment they might recieve is the loss of there cellphone for an hour before the kids takes it back...

if there was actually parenting the kids wouldn't be bullying an older women and if they think its ok to bully her imagine what kids they torture actually during school without any repercussion... just sad that already one parent is owning up to there childs behavior i cant wait to hear the other kids excuses... just sick

Basically it is the school district who will dish out the punishment anyways. It is my understanding that they have a "zero tolerance" policy for bullying. But the kids will still have the summer vacation...unless the parents make them miserable, which I too, doubt.
