Ok, I need some good advice. My son is 13 and there is this neighbor kid (same age) who is quite a bit larger than my son. Well, this other neighbor kid has a trampoline with the net around it and all the boys get on and wrestle etc. Well the big kid gets kind of rough, partly i think b/c he just doesn't know his own strength. But he also has bullied my son in the past, verbal only, but now he is getting physical. He and my son got into an arguement and the boy punched my son in the arm. And now he has a big purple bruise in the shape of a fist on his shoulder!! We do try to teach our son to stand up for himself, but how much is too much to endure? In the past when I said something to the child or his mom, he verbally picked on my son for at least 6 mos and so now I'm afraid to say anything for fear he will begin another round of verbal bullying. What should I do?Answer Question
Well when it comes to physical assault like what you said, I would have called the cops and filed a report. It's obvious his parents aren't doing anything about teaching their child anything. It's not OK to verbally, mentally or physically abuse anyone for any reason. I also wouldn't let my son around him anymore either.
