Bully? I dont know. Opinions

 My son has been having issues with this kid at school.  The first time i heard about it, the kid had been relentlessly giving him noogies, my son asked him to stop repeatedly but he didn't.  Well one day he went ot put his hands up to block his head and poked the kid in teh eye.  That poke wouldn't have happened if this kid kept his hands to himself.  So, this kid punched my son in the mouth and they both got whiteslips sent home.  I refused to sign it and said the school needs to protect my son from being bullied by this one boy.  Everyday since then my son has come home crying because this kid calls him a bitch, pushes him in line, and tries to tackle him on the playground.  Finally, I told my son to go to the school counselor.  I figured she would best help him because of her training, and because she knows my son.  He is in her social skills class because emotionally he is behind his peers.  Anyways, all she said was "we have been getting complaints from many students about this kid." 

Thats it.  No advice, no sympathy, no empathy.  Just "you're not the only one".

So, I am unsure of where I go to get this matter resolved.  The principal, the teacher. 

Any advice?

The principal, then the superintendent, then the news. Stop when one of those works.

Growing up my aunt always told me "Don't let anyone push you around. I'd rather you get in trouble at school for defending yourself than let someone think they can put their hands on you." I only had to do it once & it stopped.

Forget the counselor, go to the Principal and DEMAND that s/he does something to stop this bully, otherwise you'll be contacting a lawyer!  Schools are REQUIRED by Title VII to provide a hostile-free environment for learning.  If the Principal knows about the bullying and does nothing, s/he will be held liable!

I sincerely hope you were joking. How can you suggest that one child victimizing another will ever solve a problem? And what kind of role model would a parent be who actually TOLD their child to go be a bully to someone else? You should be careful about what you suggest-what if this mother actually took your advice? (Inconceivable as that idea is..) You would be indirectly responsible for perpetuating bullying. 

If you were serious, now I know where bullies come from.

Go to the principal. I had a similar incident with my dd and some little bully girl in her class. They used to sit together in class and I spoke to the teacher and my dd was moved to a different table. But my dd teacher said that she wasn't the only one getting bullied by this little brat. So I asked what was going to happened to the girl and she didn't give me an answer. So I went to the principal. She called in the girls mother and they had a meeting. Now that girl doesn't bother anyone.
