That is a general question. It would depend on the age, culture, and why.

as little ones like my little girl who is two. i want her to let me know that someone is messing with her. but as they get older, say from 8 on. if someone puts there hands on you, kick their a$$!!!

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.

I've taught my son that he can't hit back even if someone hits him. He's got to tell them to stop. Then I realized it didn't work all the time. If someone's really troubling him, I've told him he can hit back and I'll handle the consequences.

I think that my daughters have to stand up for themselves. If they hit back once then the other child normally leaves them alone after that. I dislike any kind of violence but some times you need to stand your ground.
