Wisconsin Dad Against Bullying

Dr. Robert O'Block reports that the actions of a Wisconsin dad who is fighting back against bullying is finally seeing action. Matthew Bent complained to his son's school in the Kaukauna Area School district about the bullying his son was being subjected to. When his complaints did not see results, he decided to take another course of action. He took a photo standing behind his son and his son was holding a sign which read: "I stand behind my son in the fight against bullying! Please "like" and "share" to send a message loud and clear that bullying needs to stop now. Tell school districts that protecting bullies by turning a blind eye is wrong." Since the picture was posted on March 26, it has received  more than 452,200 "likes" and has been shared more than 465,000 times. The father and son appeared on NBC's Today show and said they were amazed at the response. “The Facebook page has been unbelievable. I’ve heard from people around the world, some amazing stories,” Bent said, adding that the fight is far from over. Read the story in its entirety here.
