She wouldn't look bad if she lost about 200 lbs. Now that she has money she will make that a priority

I don't know with all that money she can now eat some very nice food which may not be so good for you. In all honesty I applaud her for doing this and wish her the best of luck with the concert and the anti bullying message.

    Kids can be vicious to each other.

    And now that the touchy-feely libs will have you thrown in jail for spanking your child, kids are more vicious than ever.

    Kids need their asses beat by their parents at a certain age to make them understand the norms of acceptable behavior in society.

    But the libs teach the kids to call the cops if a parent spanks them.

    And therein lies the problem.

     

    I hope this nice lady's efforts have some effect on bullying but I doubt they will.

    Spare the rod and spoil the child.

    I Agree!

        Completely agree. I wopped my two many times with my wooden spoon. Once my son told me I couldn't do that and he was going to call the cops. I handed him the phone and said dial 911. But don't bother packing a bag or any of your toys because they will not only throw me in jail, but put him in a foster home with strangers with nothing but the clothes on his back. And after that he'd be lucky to see any of us or his friends ever again. He hung up the phone and went to his room. (lol) 

        On the other hand, had a cousin who's son called the cops on him and spent a night in jail. Cuz never disciplined his son again, and as a matter of fact, barely spoke to his son for years.

        Good for this young lady to put her lottery winnings to good use, and I wish her all the best. Maybe this will be good for her soul, a healing that will allow her to move on past what the bullies did to her. I totally believe bullying needs to be controlled, but control starts at home.

          I disagree with you. Bullying leads to people taking or trying to take their lives in quiet a few cases. Honestly I don't really want to say it, but I was one of those people. And as someone who was bullied horribably in school, it didn't give me character. It made my life a living hell and caused me extreme anguish that effects me to this day.

          Scarychick, I am so sorry that is something you had to go through and live with everyday, My son tells me stories of kids who get bullied, mostly girls by girls,this is a wake up call long overdue, Parents ...pay attention to your kids, PERIOD !

            SADLY, Many parents like having kids who are bada$$es, I went to one of the toughest Detroit High Schools going and many parents encouraged fighting, for the stupidest things, "who was dissed," "who was disrespected" "who was giving looks"

            My parents taught us to know when to stand up and when to walk away and If you can't walk away, make sure your punches count, they instilled self respected and self esteem, something many bullies lack. They told us bullies want others to feel as bad as they do, and chances are their parents probably treat them very badly.

          So hence the cycle of abuse repeats.

          I have a careful line, of parenting and hoovering, there is a time to speak up and tell my son there is something wrong and there is a time where he has to work out differences with his friends, balance. There are parents who pay no attention until disaster strikes and there are those who interfer in every aspect, those are the people who are most difficult to deal with either way .

          Scarychick, it must have been very painful for you to write those words and bear your soul, but know this , many will read them and know they have to pay more attention to their children, if you woke up just one person, you made this world a better place to live in.

            Thank you, Sully for the kind words. I mean it. Love I don't think a lot of people realize that bullying is just a horrible form of abuse and doesn't make kids stronger. It tends to screw them up mentally. I am glad that you are teaching your son right. I think he is going to grow up and be a good kid.

            And really, I think a lot of reason why children are so abusive and horrible to one another is because some parents and teachers stand by and don't stop the kids from hurting each other. I know because when I was bullied, there would be teachers standing right there and they wouldn't stop them.

            And hearing in the news all the kids taking their own lives, well, it's sad that things don't seem to change and that people want to say that everyone gets bullied and they should just get over it. Well, the mind doesn't work that way, depression and thoughts of worthlessness don't just go away. Especially in young, impressionable kids who have to go into a negative and hostile enviroment everyday.

              Rdgrnr, You couldn't have said it any better.

              A good beating is what builds character and teaches respect.

              Some of todays kids have no manners whatsoever and some parents are no better, they side with their kids wrong doings and bad behavior.

              Train up a child in the way that he/she should grow and they will never depart from it.

              An ex-coworker said I was curel, so I asked her how much does she love her 70+ year old mother and she looked at me dumb founded, I then asked her if her mother takes walks alone and she said yes and inquired what it has to do with anything so I had to explain it slowly to her.

              Here goes.... How would you like it if my children was undisciplined, unruly, trouble makers, gang bangers etc., who goes around jumping old ladies for their purses and your mother became a victim of theirs?

              Her response.... I wouldn't want that happening to my mother or anyone else for that matter.

              My answer... Good, so let me whoop their behind this way they won't turn out to be one of those awful kids.

              If you plant a seed and watch it grow into a plant and one day you notice the plant leaning over in the wrong direction it would behoove you to prop it up to help it grow straight otherwise if you wait until it grows too big it will be totally impossible to get it to grow in the proper direction. (Fact not Fiction).

              Way back in the days a good fist fight would have settled the score, but it is evedent that does not work in this day and age. guns and fire bombs have taken over, leaving parents burying their kids instead of putting a band aid on their wounds.

                Did you have the internet when you were a child?  When you were a kid, did you come home from school, go on your FB page or whatever and read alot of nasty comments from your schoolmates in addition to the physical bullying you experienced while at school?  And        if a kid commits suicide after enduring that kind of physical/cyberbullying, do you still think its okay because bullying builds character and toughens weaklings or do you just consider that nature's way of weeding out the weak from the strong?  Get real   .....   it's a new day and what's goes on now is much different than what you may have experienced as a child.

                I meant the old fashioned kind of bullying. The kind where kids assemble somewhere and lay it on the weakling. No kicks no punches, no social networks where mean words can last forever.

                    When I first read the title, I thought that she was going to use her winnings either to 1) brag to the bullies about her winnings or 2) locate the bullies, travel to them, and then beat them up. I am glad that she has much nobler intentions in mind.

                    Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                    In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!
