My 12 year old son had a fight against a schoolmate at school today. When a teacher broke it up he got a bloody nose whereas his opponent got off without wounds.

His class calls him a loser and winds him up.

What would you advise him to take action that they stop teasing him?

Thanks for your help!

Pretty sure I posted advice in one of your other threads about fights at school.

OP: Your son is not a loser and you can tell him that until the cows come home but I think your son could use some male therapy. My grandkids had their share in their family dynamics and it helped them a lot to get to their young adult ages. Kids are so cruel, they always were and maybe even more so today. People in general can be so cruel.

On this subject I think back to my childhood and clicks some were in and how we treated some people who we thought were less than us...very shameful as I have thought about this.

Sounds like he was the loser in that fight. Time to enroll him in an MMA school. He will learn discipline and self-defense. In no time he will emerge victorious and shut them up. Coddling a weak child is not helping him/her. I wish I was called a loser once in a while when growing up. I would have had plenty of time to improve.

Wow, rather strange way to motivate thru negative labeling.

Will be of a clear mind and agree martial arts teaches discipline of mind and body. This includes thwarting off mental angst tossed at the subject.

Bullying is learned behavior. A young child or tween,still observes the actions and less to words. Basically " do" has more empowerment then "say".

Op, find an entrusted person who exhibits positive habits and interactions. A big brother program of sorts. Some understand it takes a mentor to deter being subjected to harm.

Some children have year-round school in our district.
Anyway, the following is your quote:
"What would you advise him to take action that they stop teasing him?"
Reword your question to comply with common English syntax.

OP, the only advice we can really offer is that your son needs to learn not to get wind up by others. We can only control ourselves and our actions. The students are teasing him because they apparently can and like to see him spiral out of it. They won't stop teasing until they get bored of it.

Your son does sound like he could use a mentor.

Maybe Germany does year-round schools?
