We're dealing with a bully situation with our 5th grade boy. It started in 4th grade and has carried over into 5th grade. The same boys and some new ones. The teachers this year have been much better about dealing with bully situations than his teacher last year, who would say she didn't want to hear about it, and take care of your problems yourselves. BUT, I'm beginning to wonder what it is about my son that attracts bullies to him. He's a well behaved, intelligent, quiet child but from what I've been led to understand, he won't stand up for himself or tell a teacher if someone hits him. I've talked to him about letting an adult know when he's been punched or kicked, but he's so resistant to it. I just don't know how to get through to him that it's OK to tell when someone is hurting you.

Any thoughts?
