A South Dakota mother is the target of both praise and criticism after she blogged that kids being bullied should toughen up.

Stephanie Metz's  wide-ranging post, which spread on Facebook after she shared a link, was as much about oversensitive modern parents as it was about kids.

"The main message is `don't be afraid to parent your kids.' They need to deal with some hardships," the 29-year-old mother of two from Rapid City said Wednesday by phone.

"It's not our job to be our children's friend and make life easy for them," she added.
