Do your child have bullies in their school? Have they ever had problems with bullies? What did they do? What did you do? Do you teach your child to be passive or fight back? Would you be okay if your child fought back?
(I taught my son to fight back after trying ALL other possiblities. We talk about this often and I let him know that if he has tried the other avenues to resolve it peacefully I will support him in his decision to fight. I believe kids need to stand up for themselves if the bullying does not stop). Oppinions?

As a teacher, I dislike when parents teach their children that violence is ok as the first response to a bully. They need to learn to use their words or get help first.
Note--I said first. If it continues and that school or responsible adults are not taking care of the matter and all other courses of action have been considered, I have no problem telling my kid to go for it and I have done so. But it should NEVER be the first action.
