Hi my son is 8... so many times in school or other places he is hit by kids. the 1st thing I teach him is ignore and make a complaint the teacher or elders.. but what if it becomes a regular feature if someone is hitting him again and again .he should repeatedly make complain to the teacher or should I teach him to ignore or beat in return .even in self-defense it's not compulsory that every time you can stop the other person without beating him. i dnt want him to grow up into an aggresive person.. also to add he learns kungfu.. so pl guide what to teach him to stay calm and do self defence

thx for the advice.... but everytime it's not the same child... it can be different child at different place... they can be anywhere like in school bus.... park... play area.. etc. So hw to deal with different children at different places who beats u... following same procedure as of a child named A is not possible everytime at every place.. their are few whome u meet just once and few r frequent

hi Virsa! u have a very pertinent question. I believe most of the parents of 7-8 years old would have a similar story to share. there are one or two aggressive types in class who would off and on drub our children. please verify this piece of information shared by your child with another child /children as sometimes children exaggerate things to catch attention. once verified ,u definitely shouldn't ask your child to IGNORE or complain Everytime to teachers as they would think that your child is a sissy. u need your child to try three things: one - not to provoke this child (let's name him A) by telling others to not be friends with him or in any such manner. Two- once A is advancing towards him , your child just needs to put his hand forward and loudly say NO ,don't do this ( make sure he has to be quick in doing this) . Three: he should try and be pally with him and end this tiff once and forever. I know it's might be sounding weird, but I have a valid reason to say that, it's difficult to change A who is so aggressive in a day or two. secondly complaining about him would be like further inviting his wrath. thirdly, A already is going through so many issues that's y he is resorting to aggression. probably A doesn't have friends, or he is having a bad time at home or in school.. so by being friends with him , your child would do good to him and be saved from everyday bruises as well as mental trauma. hope this helps!
