We are having this same problem. I haven't quite figured it out either. There is a boy down the street that was supposed to be my sons friend and he has suddenly (with another boy) started picking on my son. The one child is not the problem but when you have a couple of them doing it....it's mostly been on the bus for him and the driver wont do anything about it. I've taken him off the bus but there are still days when he has to ride. Not trying to but in just letting you know that you are not alone with this. When I get our problem figured out I'll let you know how that went.

I agree with the Ladies, enroll him in a self defense class.. it will boost his self esteem and help him deal with this stuff.. nowadays it is tough to give your child a normal childhood without violence and that is just a shame.

My son was bullied at 4th grade and I caught the kid bigger than him hit him with a water bottle on his head red-handed when I was picking him up from school. There was a teacher by the gate and she did nothing. I got to him before he tried again, took the water bottle and I told the kid pointblank, the next time I see him hit my son again, I will call his parents in front of the principal with him in the office and my son and we'll have a big talk about his conduct and how he will never hit my son or any other child again. It never happened again. At home, my husband and I had a heart-to-heart talk with both our boys and made them understand that although it's not ok to pick a fight, it's not ok to be bullied or bully someone either. If he gets bullied again, to not be afraid to tell his teacher or myself.

he needs something to boost his self esteem. i put my son in tae Kwan Do and it helped. Your son could just be a lover not a fighter and doesnt want things to get worse. My daughter had a girl picking on her and she told the girl, she felt sorry for her that she had to pick on her just to feel better. The girl stopped when she realized it didnt bother my daughter. If its a serious problem than talk to the school. no child should be bullied.

think about enrolling him in a tae kwan do group or some other self-defense-type of organization. considering how badly some things are at some schools (i.e., guns, etc.) i would be very careful about how he reacts to some people. have you also talked to the school administration if this happens at school? is there a male member of your family who can teach him how to defend himself? good luck to you and your son.
