My 6 yr old indicated to me that there might be some bulling going on at school and at the bus stop. I tried to talk to him more about it. But he pushed it off like its not big deal. There are about 10 kids that gather at the bus stop and he said 1 kid likes him, and the rest of the kids "wrestle" with him. I asked if they were playing, he said "no, their not, but its okay it doesn't bother me much". This is kinda how he is. If someone was to try and pick a fight, he will just kinda brush it off and ignore the situation. Which is fine, except with bulling that usually just makes the bully more determined.
I am not sure how to handle this... talking to the school will probably make matters worse. I offer to take him to school, but he says he wants to ride the bus. I know that ME getting involved may make things worse as well. He is my oldest, so I am not sure as to how I should handle this. We just moved here mid semester, and I am not sure he is making friends. He says he is, but he doesn't talk about them, even though I ask.
Advice mommies, how do I handle this. I know that he may need to learn to deal with bullies on his own, but... he is 6, I just have this sick feeling in my gut when he leaves for school. He wants to be liked by everyone so much, I am afraid that he would be willing to be bullied just to have that interaction.
