My son is dealing with a lot of emotions and is very sensitive. He also bottles everything inside and it is hard to get him to talk about what is bothering him. I usually do not get to find out until after he has calmed down. He would also not want to defend himself at school. I explained to him many times that it is okay to stick up for himself and defend himself is someone is doing something or saying something to him. He would tell me he did not want to get in trouble at school or hurt anyone. All you can really do is talk with him, let him know you are there for him with anything and that it is not okay for others to treat him bad. I do not know what is going on at school that he needs to defend himself, but he may not like confrontation or fighting. You can talk to him about different ways he can defend himself.
