How do I make my son defend himself?

Instructions to make the child defend himself:

Parents and teachers at school do not like to teach children to respond to assault, because this can exacerbate the situation and lead to serious injuries, but it is necessary to teach the child to defend himself in several ways, including:

  • Begin by teaching the child to be firm verbally, or to calmly and confidently de-escalate the situation by speaking, and not to give the bully or abuser the emotional response of fear or screaming that they are looking for.
  • Use role play and put mild pressure on your child that will help him practice how to deal with a bully or abuser.
  • Teach him the need to protect himself when the assault becomes physical and to try to block the blows in a good way, and you can enroll him in certain programs that teach him how to combat bullying or martial arts.
