Encourage Him to Walk Away with Confidence


There is a difference between walking away with confidence, and walking away in fear. Teach your child to disengage from the bully and to walk away with an air of self-respect. If the bully feels he can't get to your child, he'll likely give up.

Learning to walk away takes courage and isn't easy, so practicing this tactic at home is helpful. Using a line such as, "I don't care what you're saying about me, I have better things to do with my time" is a good way to help convey your message to the bully.
