my son was 'annoyed' (I hate the term bully) by a little twit of a kid since kindergarten. We told him to walk away, ignore, etc. But we also told him that if that twit laid a finger on him to take the twit out. Around 3/4 th grade the twit kicked him.... our son chased him down, hit him HARD on the chin, and the kid went down and didnt get up. Our son then walked away.
Yes, our child got in trouble with the school but not with us.
The kid has NEVER bothered our boy again.... our son is now in 8th grade and has never had any other issues.
