My 9 year old is a nice kid who gets his feelings hurt easily..he was in day camp yesterday and almost in tears coming home telling me that some kid was being a bully.
When I asked him what the kid did, he first said"he told me my Youtube channel was stupid." I told him that disagreement or not liking something someone does isn't being a bully-that we are allowed to disagree even if the kid was being rude.
BUT then he said, the kid kept following him around camp and calling him names and at one point pushed him. He says the counselors didn't really do anything.
Are there some online resources we can look at? What IS a bully? What to do if being bullied when the adults do nothing?
I told him, from now on, if anyone touches him (shoves, hits, etc) while bullying he has my permission to defend himself.
