My son, age 6, is small for his age and very quiet. We have just figured out that he is being bullied at school by another classmate (of similar size). He says he doesn't feel safe at school and has an upset stomach every day before and during school. I have raised him to use words not fists to communicate and solve problems. He has told the teacher but says the kid targets him even more. MOst of this is NOT occurring in the classroom but in the cafetaria, halls, and recess. I have written the school regarding this and the teacher called me back first chance she had today. The kid in question is already removed from the rest of the class (desk in corner). Anyone else facing this at this young age or have any suggestions? I do NOT want him to have to turn to getting physical with this bully....but others seem to think thats the answer. HELP!!!! He once loved school and now hates going. He is a gifted student and this is heartbreaking to watch.
