    Well done to the mum as far as I am concerned. She asked him to stop and he didn't, she told the teacher and nothing was done. Sad it needed a punch to stop it but if it were my daughter, I wouldn't be upset with her. Would probably have a chat about how to deal with things without violence though.

    Yep this. Good on the mum for standing up for her daughter!

    I'm in two minds about it...
    Good on her for standing up for her daughter. It's something that's far too often brushed off with a "boys will be boys" attitude. Hopefully the kid, his parents and the school will take that kind of behaviour more seriously in future.
    Totally unacceptable though, in my view, to justify the violence on her daughter's part. If you have another option (moving away, leaving the classroom etc.) then it is NOT self defense. Of course the girl shouldn't have to leave, but his unacceptable behaviour does not justify violence.

    This. There were other options her daughter could have taken and it could have been followed up appropriately from there.

    Doesn't she say the girl
    Complained to the teacher? In my opinion a teenaged girl probably would be more worried about walking out of a class than punching a boy in the face.

    She felt threatened, she fought back the only way she felt she could. In this situation he was the aggressor it is totally justifiably self defence in my opinion.

    If I'm at a party and a man tried to undress me without my consent I'm kicking him in the baby maker.

    Reality is though, if you can get out of the situation without violence, then the violence is not self defense. You did not need the violence to defend yourself. You chose to hurt somebody - to infringe on their bodily autonomy - rather than take the other option.
