Bullying Behavior : A Sign of the Times?

TEMECULA, Calif. - A seventh-grade girl got suspended from school for a week for bullying another student. Then Mom got involved, and things got worse for the bully.

During the suspension week, the 12-year-old's mother, made her daughter stand outside various schools with a poster reading: "I engaged in bullying behavior. I got suspended from school and this street corner. Don't be like me. Stop bullying."

"I don't want that kind of environment at the school my child attends, or the school any child attends," her mom stated.
