Hi, desperately need help. My son is 12, first year high school, his an only child, quiet shy very laid back still very much a mummy's boy, hasn't hit a rebellious stage yet very good overall but...
He has been suspended numerous times, each time it's been from self defence, and I'm starting to feel like I should do more..
To be honest the first time I was surprised he stuck up for himself because he is so shy. But yes I know it is wrong, and violence doesn't solve anything. But I understand he got sick of the kid hitting him so he retaliated.
He has been told to walk away, Which he usually does but he hits braking point when it keeps Happening,
Teachers don't seem to do much except suspend both of them and tell them it's wrong and it shows up as physical assault on their record.
Should I change schools? Should I speak to the teachers? What would u do in this situation, I never thought this would be something I'd have to worry about and not sure how to stop it.
