I judge you undeserving of any happiness whatsoever.

Only in that I would fight back or what have you and feel bad about it afterwards. It is not their fault however it was because being so young, like many have already posted, I didnt understand when each approach was appropriate. I would mostly get it when i totaly pwned someone, like my senior year in highschool I had a wrestling tournament and ended up against another schools heavy weight and totally owned his ass hard with a head and arm hip toss, like over my body, and knocked the air out of him. I felt horrible.
I also think the events of my childhood lead to my extreme anger management problem, and over aggresiveness when it comes to confrontation.
I can say that if your kid is having self esteem issues, you should definantly look into their schools wrestling program. When I was in my second year of ninth grade, I decided that wrestling was what I wanted. It kept me from dropping out, I lost a lot of fat, went from 360 to 215 in about 6 months or so, and taught me more about dedication than my years of tae kwon do before that. The TKD after though was awesome, I found a place in my sophomore year of highschool that liked to do a lot of sparring and actual drills and trained some ground fighting.
I feel that this banned commercial is totally relevant and pertinent to this thread:
