  • First make sure you talk to your son about this. Let him know that its wrong and that he needs to stand up for himself. Then talk to the bullies themselves. Id keep badgering their parents too. Its not right and tehy need to own it

  • If it is their house and they won't listen, move out. If you can't, don't leave your son alone with them.. If you have to work outside the home, find somewhere else for your son to be..

  • my boyfriend and i have talked to our son about how its not nice and letting him know its wrong. and as far as the bullies goes we talked to the other kids about how its not nice but they keep doing it. they're parents dont care they just care about themselves. im just scared that one day the other kids are going to bully another kid by pushing them down the stairs.

  • It sounds like a tough situation.
    Personally, I wouldn't let my kid play with them alone anymore.

    People may not agree with me on this, but let your son know that if he is hit by one of them, he has every right to defend himself.
    If your boyfriend is their Uncle, it's time for him to get VERY serious with his sister's kids, if she won't.

  • Teach your son to defend yourself also discipline the other kids when they do it. I would be smacking the bottoms of the kids hitting my son and if they complained I would tell them to discipline their own kids so I don't have to do it for them. Its a drastic step but you have tried everything else and one day its gonna lead to your son getting badly hurt if you don't put a stop to it.
