Dad jailed for Bullying Bully

Father Arrested After Confronting Daughter’s Bully

ST. LOUIS, MO- Police arrested a man after he confronts a small child on a school bus.

Malvin Crain turned himself into Collinsville Police. He’s facing charges of battery and aggravated assault. They are both class a misdemeanors. Police released Crain after he posted bond.

Police say 33-year-old Malvin Crain of Granite City reportedly grabbed the six-year-old boy by his jacket. He then pulled out his belt and threatened to attack the child if he didn’t stop bullying his daughter.

But according to the Collinsville School superintendent, Bob Green said he got word of the alleged bullying days ago. “The mother of the little girl came to the school last week and reported that there was a problem on the bus.”  Green said the principal followed procedure, contacted the parent of the six-year-old, contacted the other parent and they thought it was a done deal. “This morning the father came to school, told him everything was fine we have it taken care of, and apparently the parent went to the bus stop.”

When asked why the adult was allowed on the bus in the first place, he repeated what the bus company First Student told him. “They said sometimes parents get on the bus, to ask questions or deliver information. They didn’t think the parent was going to get out of control and do anything,” said Green, “It’s more like putting the kids in danger, what if you mistaken the kid… who did the bullying, you whooping someone’s kid who didn`t do anything, that`s messed up.”

A Caring Family

Learning – Families are where we learn values, skills, and behavior. Strong families manage and control their learning experiences. They establish a pattern of home life. They select appropriate television programs. They guide their children into the world outside the home. They do not let social forces rule their family life. They involve themselves in neighborhood, school, government, church, and business in ways that support their family values. Strong families teach by example and learn through experience as they explain and execute their values.

Loyalty – Strong families have a sense of loyalty and devotion toward family members. The family sticks together. They stand by each other during times of trouble. They stand up for each other when attacked by someone outside the family. Loyalty builds through sickness and health, want and good fortune, failure and success, and all the things the family faces. The family is a place of shelter for individual family members. In times of personal success or defeat, the family becomes a cheering section or a mourning bench. They also learn a sense of give and take in the family, which helps prepare them for the necessary negotiations in other relationships.

Love – is at the heart of the family. All humans have the need to love and to be loved; the family is normally the place where love is expressed. Love is the close personal blending of physical and mental togetherness. It includes privacy, intimacy, sharing, belonging, and caring. The atmosphere of real love is one of honesty, understanding, patience, and forgiveness. Such love does not happen automatically; it requires constant daily effort by each family member. Loving families share activities and express a great deal of gratitude for one another. Love takes time, affection, and a positive attitude.

Laughter – is good family medicine. Humor is an escape valve for family tension. Through laughter we learn to see ourselves honestly and objectively. Building a strong family is serious business, but if taken too seriously, family life can become very tense. Laughter balances our efforts and gives us a realistic view of things. To be helpful, family laughter must be positive in nature. Laughing together builds up a family. Laughing at each other divides a family. Families that learn to use laughter in a positive way can release tensions, gain a clearer view, and bond relationships.

Leadership – is essential. Family members, usually the adults, must assume responsibility for leading the family. If no one accepts this vital role, the family will weaken. Each family needs its own special set of rules and guidelines. These rules are based on the family members’ greatest understanding of one another, not forces. The guidelines pass along from the adults to the children by example, with firmness and fairness. Strong families can work together to establish their way of life, allowing children to have a voice in decision making and enforcing rules. However, in the initial stages and in times of crisis, adult family members must get the family to work together.

Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter

True Love

With this heart-warming post that I am very proud to repost, I will start our Good Parenting weekly Post.

After doing my customary speed-read of several of this Author’s Posts, I can honestly say it reads like a paper back Romance series. Although hard to just accept at face value, I had to read more; and now I believe this couple has what few couples have, true love and a bonding that will last a lifetime (I’m so happy for them).

I publicize nothing about my personal life, although just this one time I have to say this couple has a relationship like my own.  Children born in a family with a relationship like this are Blessed, but are becoming a very rare breed.

Children are The Future of This World, and deserve their chance to leave their mark, as they take their one-way trip through this life.
