If your child was getting slapped around and made fun of, would you want him to report the incident, tell on everyone and become a social outcast? How would you feel about it? Would you feel ashamed that you raised a Fanook?
Or would you rather he stand up for himself, take a beating if need be, but show heart and respect for himself? Even if it meant him being suspended from school?
Now, If a child is disabled, mentally or physically, that's a different story. There is nothing lower than some kid who targets a disabled kid and abuses him or her. And no...Obesity is NOT a disability.
