    default Parents teaching their kids to fight

    How do you feel about parents who teach (or try to teach) their kids how to fight in response to their kids being picked on by another kid? The general argument being that their teaching them to stand up for themselves. Is this something you would do or encourage?

    Hell yeah! I'd just tell them they can't throw the first punch.

    I would and I did. I taught her to not start it but to finish it if she had to. And my brother taught her how to box. Seriously. And I found out in later years that she was good at it.

    Exactly, now maybe they won't need it with the miniature assholes they deal with in school, but they're gonna have to learn it sooner or later.
