I have a couple of questions for you all, as my 13 year old son is unfortunately the victim of bullying right now. He's a shy boy (ISXX), and it's like pulling teeth to get him to open up about the situation, but he's told me enough about some things that have been said to him to have me pretty concerned about it. My husband and I are still in the process of trying to assess the situation before deciding what to do, if anything. All I know at this point is that the comments that the bullies have made are far worse than anything anyone has ever said to me in my life! Breaks my heart! (of course it does, I'm ENFJ)
My questions are:
Bully victims - "What are some things that could have been said to by parents/friends/teachers/etc. that would have helped it sting a little less?"
Bulliers - "What are some things that your victims could have said to you which would have made you back down?"
I know there are probably no magic answers here, but seems to be a perfect forum to at least ask! Thanks!
