my son just started school on 04th Jan 2011 and there's this girl in his class who from day one has pinched, scratched, bitten and called him names. The school teacher says she's an aggressive girl on the whole with other kids too. I think I'm the only parent who's come in to complain though, as Kenyan society is usually very passive, non-confrontational, some chalk it down to 'ah they'll grow out of it' others to 'let the kids play, we cant watch em all the time' one dad told me he'd teach his boy how to fight back, afterall, how can he be bullied by a girl!!! He told me to quit interfering with them coz I'd turn my son into a pansy!! I had to tell him to just drop it. First off, I was really pissed especially when I saw the bite marks on my son, but I wanna know, how to deal with this without turning into a bully of others myself. MT.
