At school, my son was playing with a ball and 3 other boys (all from a grade higher than he) started to pick on him and tried to take his ball away. My son is not the type to back down so he tried to defend himself from the boys. They snatched the ball and he was angered so he bear hugged one of the boys (the bigger one) and the boy managed to hit my son on his back. My son said it really hurt and he told the teacher. The teacher did not do anything to resolve it so my son came home humiliated and upset. When my husband heard what had happened, he was furious and decided that it would be okay to hit another kid back if they hit you first. Now, out on the street I would agree to this reply, but not at school. Any advice for me to tell my husband? Any advice on how my son can handle this situation in case it happens again?
