My 8 year old son came inside about a hour ago, crying because a a little boy (9 years old) in the neighborhood was calling him "bad" names. My son wouldn't tell me everything that was said but he was extremely upset! The other little boy is known around the neighborhood as a brat and a bully. Most kids won't play with him at all! My son tries to stay away from him but he is our neighor (3 doors down) and stops at our house when he's sees kids in my yard. His parents work all day and don't get home until about 8: 30 most nights. He runs around the neighborhood with older boys (12 & 13) unsupervised. I don't know his parents. How should I handle this problem. He has also said very vulgar things to me!
