Ds was bullied last yr, ended up physical but school assured me it had been dealt with.
Started back last week, ds reported to teacher that bully was cornering him in clockroom. Teachers response to me is that he thinks ds is feeling vunerable and seeing things that aren't really there. Ds has no reason to be negative etc and I established from him exactly what the cornering was before bringing it up. Because the other boy basically said he didn't do anything and as usual it was unwitnessed the teacher has chosen to believe that. What would your response be and how can I empower my ds when teacher is being dismissive?

How old are they Labro? If we're talking primary school aged, then teach DS the power of forward motion....roleplay a bit with him how to make people move out of his way without lifting a hand (or a foot) ...it's all about intention...he must move forward with the intention of going THROUGH the boy blocking him...he has to have strong belief that the boy will move...and he will if your DS has the belief that he will.

So he should focus on a point past the boy and behind him...and go towards it strongly. This kind of intimidation is hard to police and it's a good opportunity for your DS to learn some tricks.
