Advice needed

We have a kid in the neighborhood who hits everyone. His parents say they have tried everything to break him of it. Problem is the kids won't hit back. So he keeps doing it. He is no longer allowed to play with my ss. But how do I get ss to defend himself instead of accepting an apology and then it happens again the next day.

Oh that's a tough one, I mean you don't want kids to hit back, but some times that's what it takes to get the point across. Maybe your SS will get tired of it and hit back hard enough to hurt.

I've always told my kids it was better to walk away, unless you can't get away, then you have every right to defend yourself.

I think the reason he hits so much is no one hits back. Hitting once on a while is one thing , daily is another

I agree, I think I wouldn't say anything to SS if he were to hit this kid back, I mean a person can only take so much before it gets annoying. How old are the kids we are talking about?

Hmmm this is tough..I've taught my sons don't ever throw the first punch walk away BUT. If they hit you, hit right back... You have to defend yourself.
Sorry that kid needs a taste of his own medicine

I'm   wondering  if  this  is  his  way  of  getting attention.   Maybe   the  only  thing   he   knows. If  he's  younger  then 12   He  needs  a  Big Brother figure.

We have told ds to hit back, he won't because the kid apologizes. One of their other friends won't hit back because this kid doesn't want to be hit.

Boy, I was expecting a little older. Your ss needs to hit him back, or at least tell the kid he doesn't like and to stop hitting him. I can understand why he doesn't though.
