The Bully Playing The Victim
My son is a 6th grader who is being bullied by another 6th grade boy. These two have never really gotten along very well. I've encourage my son to walk away or ignore this child that is tormenting him.
These boys attend the same school and they play the same sports so they are constantly around each other. Well, I was approached by this boys mother, who informed me that she and her son was fed up with my child bullying her son.
My son has NEVER been accused of mistreating any child. Needless to say I was flabbergasted as to what to say to her except that I would be having a long talk with my son. I don't believe that my son has done what he is been accused of doing mostly because he is a soft spoken tender hearted little boy and because this other child has a history of "accusing" several other kids off bullying him.
How can I inform this mother that her child is being dishonest with her about this situation?
