Let us suppose your precious little girl, Kytan, has come home from elementary school and tells you that her classmate, mean Cassandra, pulled her hair and called her names. You take which of the following steps:
- Explain to Kytan that she has to learn to get along with her classmates, and if she can’t be friends with Cassandra she should just ignore her.
- Give little Kytan judo lessons so she is better able to defend herself.
- Call Kytan’s teacher and try to persuade her to help mend the relationship between Kytan and Cassandra.
- Give Kytan your favorite Luger and instructions on avoiding the metal detectors at school.
- Call Cassandra’s mother and tell her that her daughter better stop bugging your daughter, or else.
- Take the matter to court and ask the judge to intervene.
It’s really hard to find good judo instructors these days, so the only sensible answer is F. And that’s just what Mrs. Schultz, mother of Kytan, did.
Mrs. Schultz said her ten-year-old daughter had been subjected to name calling, hair pulling and taunts from her classmate, Cassandra, so she took the matter to a Michigan court.
Macomb Circuit Court Judge Michael Schwartz issued a stern warning to the children: “If one of you looks cross-eyed to the other you’re going to come back here.” The heads of the two fifth graders barely rose above the judge’s bench.
The attorney for ten-year-old Cassandra thought the ruling was “definitely a solution.” Others weren’t so happy. Macomb County prosecutor Carl Marlinga asked, “Where did we get this idea that every dispute between children has to wind up before a circuit court judge? I think it’s a ridiculous waste of time.”
This is a short Outrage because we’ve got to go assemble our legal team — little Johnny Outrage just came home and told us that Charlie blasted him with a spitball.

I waited seventeen years ti get even with the little punks that beat me up on the way to and from school. When i went from ninety pounds at sixteen to one hundred and suxty pounds ad seventeen I got even and then they snots were the ones to hurt.
the NYLJ recently reported a case involving high school students who went on a school trip to Disney Land. before the trip the students were required to sign a pledge of no alcohol or drug use on the trip. While there, these 2 kids were smoking pot in their hotel room. A teacher smelled it, went in and searched the room, found the contraband, and sent the kids home on the next plane. Their parents (one had to have been a lawyer) sued the school claiming violation of their rights against unreasonable searchs and siezures. Good lesson for those kids by their parents, huh. At least the court had the good sense to toss the case.
Uhhhh, yeah. “Little people”?!?! They are kids!!! They are supposed to be learning lessons that will shape their adult behavior and they need to learn these lessons from responsible adults!!! I’m not even going to try to explain how I feel about this only like minded folks will understand, but I think this is a good example of how off kilter this country is. Parenting??? What’s that??? Is that where I have a kid and then treat them like a side effect for 18 years at which time I kick them out of the house???

I was a neighbor to Mrs. Schultz and her family for about two years. She is the type of person who would blow something way out of proportion and “protect” her kids, and assumed her kids did no wrong. It’s an outrage that she would involve the court system instead of trying to resolve the matter on a personal level.
