My 8 yr old son has had issues being bullied at the bus stop off and on...sometimes he's bullied, sometimes he's not. One of his biggest issues that he has is he has a HUGE MOUTH...it manifests in school as talking in class...we suspended him for 2 days so hopefully it works. He has a "class clown" personality and likes to have people laugh at him...but he doesn't always know when to turn it off. Example is sometimes he'll smile at adults when they're being serious and has a hard time stopping smiling, he likes to "trick" mom by turning off lights when I'm showering, etc. Makes him fun but has a down side too. I talked to our downstairs neighbor and there is a kid in the 6th grade who he says picks on him. When we talked to the kids mom, she says the school counselor told her that my son was threatening to "jump" the kid with his friends...I had a hard time believing it cuz he's small for his age...my son claims this kid is picking on him. Other kids saw this kid throw an egg on my car and there was an incident in school where kid punched someone and my son kicked him and got a referral for it. I don't always get the full story from my son, so I don't know how much of the "bad guy" he is in this situation. I am not one of those parents, however, who feels like my kid is an angel, though I have learned from my 18 yr old steppunk (long story) and working with kids that a brat is NOT something I have any patience for, and when I say brat I mean a kid who is spoiled and is never told "no." btw....Any insight or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!Answer Question

Just because your kid is smaller doesn't mean he is innocent in all of the troubles.
