Do be supportive and patient. He will slowly adapt. If this is happening at school please confide in the teachers and seek their help to put an immediate stop. If it is at home or in the family, observe how your child is responding. Teach him to be assertive: example 1. To look into the eyes of the bully and say loudly STOP IT. 2. Move away from the situation 3. Immediately seek the help of an elder nearby. 4. At home create a game where you and her play. The game should be on power and control. So you pretend to be a monster and you are trying to catch him Please make sure the game is fun and not to instill fear. when he is escaping or trying to put up a brave stand, praise him and say,' oh my you are so powerful. .. Through such games and even stories you can subtly teach him how to be assertive. I hope this helps. I hope these give you some ideas.
