well they have to learn how to deal with their own troubles. as long as they are right they have to fight for it.... but when my children are still little i always tell they to tell the kids parents what that kid did then let the parent deal with their child.

I'd prefer that they walk away from the kid that's being inappropriate. My eldest is an adult now, but he has always had quite the temper & just won't back down if he's pushed. Even though he's not a bully himself, it's gotten him in quite a bit of trouble over the years. His tendency isn't to just defend himself & get away from the aggressor, his is to defend himself & give the aggressor a reason not to try again. Society doesn't accept that anymore & probably shouldn't. If you must get physical to defend yourself that's one thing, but then you must get away from the situation & try to avoid it in the future.
