I know there are differing opinions on this.
If your child was attacked physically by another child, without the immediate chance of intervention from an adult, would you advise them to run away/not fight back...or would you advise them to stand up for themselves and fight back?
My parents always taught me to NEVER start a fight, and to try to avoid them at all costs. However, they also told me that if I was attacked first, and couldn't avoid it, to fight back if I could.
How do you feel about this?

if its a little shove then no... but the child cant be labeled as a runner or weak person early- most kids in schools are in school with eachother until at least highschool!!!! i would say if hurt badly then yes its self defense but never start fights. i was punched in the face and attached by 2 girls at a dance cause it was said i liked the same boy as they did... they made me bleed. i attached back and broke both of their noses. even though they only made me bleed and thy had worst injuries they got suspended for school i didnt and they had to pay for my injury and i didnt have to pay theirs. it was self defense.
