    difficult child's wrote in this weeek's letter that he's "having" to play bloody knuckles with guys in Department of Juvenile Justice to prove he's strong so they- mostly gang memebers- will get off his back. What is this exactly?

    If your difficult child is talking about the same type of Bloody Knuckles that I remember from childhood...

    t's a challenge where you put your hand down flat on a surface such as a counter or table. Then someone hits you across the knuckles with something both hard and sharp, such as the edge of a deck of cards.

    It hurts like H-E-double-hockey-sticks, but if you can sit through a round or two without flinching, wincing or worse, crying, then the mean ones tend to leave you alone.

    Sorry your difficult child's having to endure this. Sending hugs to both of you.

    Yeah, we used to play that in elementary school, with a deck of cards. Odd that 14 y/os would be playing it. Maybe they mean something different?

    I asked Jamie this and from what I got it is slightly different.

    You hold your fist out about six inches from the wall and punch the wall. whoever ends up doing it the longest wins.
