Now that we are well into the school year, kids everywhere are faced with the challenge of how to deal with bullies.
Here’s a typical encounter: Your 5th grade son is playing soccer on the playground at recess. A 6th grade bully comes over and takes his ball, throws it at him and laughs as he walks away. What should your son do?
a) Throw the ball back at him
b) Walk away and say nothing
c) Report the boy to school authorities
d) Go after the kid and try to talk to him
