My son has been the target of four or five kids that like to make fun of my son because of his hearing aid, because of his kidney condition and the fact he can't play sports, they like tripping him, bullying him constantly. We've tried mediation but they're parent's are just as bad. The school has done "little" besides talking to the kids, giving them detention, and shaking hands which fixes the problem for a week, and after that, it starts back up. I have always told my son, not to hit anyone, and to walk away, but i'm a bit of at a wit's end, and changing schools would be more of a hassle for him, than anything. How would you deal with bullies? I'm not saying these kids are bullies, but I do believe it's from lack of attention, or from the examples they see, I just am concerned on what lessons I would be teaching my son if I told him to do the same to them. Which is something I do not believe is right.
