Blog Response Chapter 4
If I was at Calli’s party or a party of that nature I would have been scared. I would have wanted to call my parents to in fact I would call my parents. I would have gone home and try not to tell any adults what went on at the party.
If Jodee would have just gone down stairs and told her mom that she was not feeling good. If she would not have told her mom what was going on upstairs and what everyone was doing then they would not have found out. Also if she would not of told her mom her mom would not make her tell Calli’s mom and nobody would have got in trouble, but I do agree it was a good thing for her to tell her mom what they were doing upstairs.
I do not think Jodee should have been blamed for the punishments the other kids received. She did not mean to tell on them and she did not want to tell on them she just wanted out of the problem. She should not be blamed just because the other kids were doing something that they should not have been doing they were only in sixth grade. I think that the other kids should get over there selves and realize that, that was in the past and that it is not all Jodee’s fault.
I think that I would have got into a lot of trouble with my parents. Especially because I would have only been in sixth grade. I probably would get all of my privileges taken away and I would be grounded for what seems like forever, but even though that happened to me I do not think I would have acted like that to Jodee. Even though I would be in SO much trouble I would realize that Jodee did not feel comfortable.
No, I do not feel the treatment Jodee is receiving is fair. She is getting beat up, talked about, her stuff getting ruined, and just plain out being bullied all because of one thing that happened. Calli and all of the other kids involved in this need to realize that yes they did get in trouble but they did but also that what they did and are doing is wrong. Jodee did one thing wrong and now her whole life is being ruined.
