My Six Year Old Boy Is Being Bullied
My six year old boy is being bullied. I tried talking to his parents and asked them if they could have a word with their son but was told not to be bothering them and it was natural for boys to fight.
My son is not a fighter and tends to cry rather than hit back. I have told him to stay up outside his own door but now this bully is coming up and picking on him again. I've told him not to speak to him but this seems to aggravate him and he ends up chasing him and kicking him.
He starts by mocking him and telling him he's stupid and when my son says something back he has pushed him, kicked him, stuffed grass in his mouth.
I'm not sure what to do next. Should I contact the police? Would they help with something like this?
