Hi, thanks so much for reaching out, but I don't need legal advice. I requested a parenting coach -- could you please share this with one of your parenting coach colleagues on Pearl.com?
I will be glad to opt-out and to request for your question to be moved to Pearl parenting category.
Hi and thank you for being an active JA/PEARL Customer,
There are 2 ways to handle this bullying:
DIRECT: Please do not call me names. It hurts my feelings. If you do it again I will need to tell the teacher....or...If you do that people will not like you.
FOGGING: "You could be right". This strategy usually stops the bully because they are not getting the response they expected.
Here is a highly recommended book with many more strategies:

I hope this helps....
