I'm noticing that some mommies won't take action against a child bullying their child unless it turns physical...
and some mommies will take action if they get harassed...
Where do you draw the line between someone giving your kid a hard time, and all out assault? What's the difference?

If my son is in a situation with any of his classmates and feels he is threatened in any way or feels he is being treated unfairly he has been taught to bring it to the group of friends and discuss his feelings and they then can have a conversation about the events that took place. Bringing it to the group allows them all to discuss how things could be handled better the next time and come up with solutions. This is very normal in his school environment. I do believe that children, for the most part, should try to work those things out on their own. However there does come a point when our children may not come to a solution in that case an adult should be brought into the situation to help the children come up with a solution. I teach my son that he should treat others as he would be treated and to always remember how it would feel if a person acted that way towards him.

I also wanted to add if a certain child repeatedly attacked my son, verbally or physically, and adult intervention has not helped the situation I would hope that my son would defend himself if need be. I in no way expect him to solve things with violence but sometimes we just need to keep our bodies safe from others.
