There is a teenager in my neighborhood , he is at least 16, maybe 17. He likes to hang out with little kids. My son is 8. It seems like he likes kids between the ages of 6-10 years old. Sometimes he is good to them , then sometimes he hits them and teases them and just is a straight up bully. About 2 weeks ago he hit my son with a stick and made a bruise on his shoulder. I told my kids not to hang out with him any more then the teenage boy "Josh" when he found this out he was telling my kids curse words to say at me. I confronted him about it. He has done good to stay away for 2 weeks now. Yesterday he started coming around again and I reminded him that he was to stay away and he acts like he don't remember that. He says the reason he has been away the past 2 weeks is because he was out of town. People say that maybe he is handicapped or something, that maybe he cannot control the way he acts. But he is in regular school and he is in the boyscouts. He has no father around and his mother is bipolar so she is not really any help. I am thinking about calling the police if he don't leave my son alone, but then I am afraid that might just make things worse.
