Stupid episode
30 January 2019 | by dsnow-1See all my reviews

As much as I like Growing Pains, I do not like this episode.

The theme of the show is fighting never solved anything but no one tells that to the bullies.

It gives the lesson that a person should never defend yourself "because fighting never solved anything.

So the lesson in the end is let a person bully and hit you no matter what.
