This will be a new opinion style poll where instead of voting for answers I give you, you'll just answer yourself in the comments and we'll discuss it. THE QUESTION: You get married and have a son. Your son is 8 years old. You, your wife, and your other children pull up to the schoolyard to pick your 8 year old son up and you see him in the field standing near a bigger kid. The bigger kid is bullying him, hitting your 8 year old son. You watch as your 8 year old son, obviouisly scared, cowers and doesn't fight back whatsoever and gets knocked to the ground. Fearing your son might be a coward for the rest of his life. What would you do (as the father) ?
