I encourage my 6yo to punch kids

that physically assault her or touch her inappropriately.

Basically my daughter had to miss gym class today (her favorite class) because while they were getting their backpacks today to take to the gym (because its their last part of the day) some kid decided to walk up to her and kick her and without missing a beat I'm told she punched him in the chest. She says she had to go to the office and she sat there but didnt get talked to at all but the kid that kicked her first had to be talked to by the principal.

I'm assuming my daughter isn't in trouble with the school because I didnt get a call home about it, I wouldnt have known at all if she hadn't told me and to be honest I'm a little upset they didn't call me, she was hurt, I'd like to know, ya know?

Anyway, we've always told our daughter that if she is touched in a way she doesnt like or physically assaulted (being kicked for no reason counts as that) then she has our permission to hit the kid that does so to her. 

If the school DID call me and she happened to be in trouble over it then I would tell them the same thing I just said here though tomorrow when I pick her up I'm going to go in and ask why she was punished by not getting to go to gym for another kid hitting her.

My girls are taught to walk away and tell someone in authority..they are only to get physical if it cannot be avoided.

I have taught my kids the same. I'll be damned if my kids were going to be bullied or otherwise. As far as why she was punished, most schools, if not all, have a zero tolerance policy to hitting, regardless if the student is in the right.

My son is being taught that same thing by his father. All it has done is get him in trouble because it escalates the situation. Smh.

Hitting back lowers you --and kids--to the level of the bad kid
Take the high road.

My daughter is so delicate and would just never punch anyone. She's not the type. She would cry and tell a teacher.
