My little brother (12) is a super runty scrawny kid who's being bullied by his "friend" whos 13, and way bigger. He does fencing so I told him to fuck the bully but he's scared of being expelled. What does he do?
Fencing LOL what is he gonna do, duel off with the bully?
Tell him to man up and put this dude in his place. All bullies test you, it starts with small gestures, small remarks, jokes at your expense... All to see how much you're willing to put up with. Eventually it gets physical.
He needs to be physical first, out of the fuckin blue. This other kid needs to realize that he's been picking on a maniac
Also to add, this happened to me as a kid, so on the way home I caught up to him and sucker punched him from behind and beat the shit out of him.
I hate sucker punches, but if it's a bully and he won't pipe down he's fair game imho.
My brother is not good at punching. He says that the only real place his punches could hurt is the face, and the bully is like twice his size.
Like what kind of maniac things should he do?
Glad you asked, OP. The next time this bully says the slightest thing, the slightest offensive tone... Your Brother needs to walk right up to him, look him dead in the eye, take a blunt object and just slam it into the bully's stomach. Hard enough to drop him to the floor.
When the bully is wincing in pain, your brother should kneel down, look him in the eye and calmly say " the next time You talk to me like that, I'm not going to be as nice as I am right now... Now get up and get the fuck out of my face"
Then hit him while he's down. Hit him hard enough that he doesn't want to stick around.
I've been hit like that and I've hit people like that. Then goal is to make them feel powerless.
