Mom and Grandma attack 4th Grade bullies

This was the way things were done in the 1950s and before and bullies didn't stand a chance against wrathful parents and grandparents. I'm not saying it is right or wrong but it did prevent a lot of emotional and physical damage to children at the time:

TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — A woman who says her 9-year-old daughter was bullied said Sunday that she took matters into her own hands when she confronted one of her daughter’s tormenters on a school bus, but she denied slapping anyone despite being charged with assault.
Rebecca Sardoni said she and her mother boarded a school bus Friday morning bound for East Dover Elementary School and asked for a boy they claimed had been harassing her daughter on the bus.
Several students on the bus said Rebecca Sardoni then cursed at the boy and slapped him and a boy seated next to him while her mother yelled at the two boys, Toms River Police Chief Michael G. Mastronardy told The Asbury Park Press.
Rebecca Sardoni, 28, of Toms River, and her mother, 51-year-old Stephanie Sardoni, of Beachwood, were arrested Friday and released on summonses. Rebecca Sardoni is charged with simple assault, criminal trespass and making terroristic threats. Stephanie Sardoni is charged with criminal trespass.
Rebecca Sardoni told The Associated Press that she regretted boarding the bus, but she denied touching or hitting anyone.
‘‘I was upset. I wasn’t crazy woman upset,’’ she said. ‘‘I don’t put my hands on my own kids. I would have never put my hands on anyone’s kid.’’
Sardoni said her daughter is upset and nervous about going to school Monday. She said she’s considering sending her daughter to a new school but knows for sure that the girl won’t be taking the bus anymore.
‘‘It’s crazy that this got blown into me doing something wrong — me and my family — when this is my daughter that is the victim,’’ Sardoni told the AP.
Sardoni said she took matters into her own hands after school officials ignored complaints that her daughter, who is also in fourth-grade, had been verbally and physically bullied by four students. She said her mother merely stood at the front of the bus with the driver.
School officials couldn’t be reached Sunday by the AP.
The boys were treated by nurses from Toms River Regional Schools for cuts to their mouths. One of the boys was taken by his parents to a local hospital for treatment of a neck injury, Mastronardy said.
The stepfather of one of the boys — who have not been named because of their ages — told the newspaper his stepson had a cut on his lip after Rebecca Sardoni slammed his head against the bus window.
AP Radio reporter John Klobucar in Washington contributed to this report.

Cops: NJ mom, grandma attacked 4th-grade bullies

No one protects bullied children anymore, not the schools, not the police, not the parents, not anyone. Kids bullied often commit suicide or just one day take a gun to school and blow the bullies away. With a society this crazy almost anything can and will happen. Our system is broken. I would never send my child to a public school ever again. (Or my children's children either.) 

Note: In 1980 in Mt. Shasta I had   three children in public school there from kindergarten through 4th grade. When the 4th grade was sent to the junior high school because of overcrowding that year within the first week an 8th grader broke a 4th grader's jaw. My wife and I were so incensed we permanently withdrew all our children from public school and went to Oak Meadow School for an Independent Study course for our children. If you need to protect your kids from bullies Oak Meadow school is still online and not that expensive (relatively speaking) if one of you has the time to educate your children. We eventually moved to the coast of California, bought a business and put our kids in school for Junior High and High School. The kids are now a lawyer, a Fire Captain and a nurse.
