Yes, there was a little while when my son was being bullied at school, I said to tell the teacher if it happened and if nothing was done, he could hit the child back. But then, I also told him a few "clever" things to say which would have stumped the bully. So, although I wouldn't use hitting back as a first option, I would tell them that I don't have a problem with it if necessary.

No, I've never felt it necessary for one child to hit another. What I teach the kids in my classes is that if they have a problem, go tell a teacher. I tell them that if they hit the kid, chances are they're going to be the one who gets in trouble and the kid they hit isn't worth that.

yes i think everybody has a right to defend themselves,even if that means with neccessery force,because unfornunatly if they don't then it just makes it easier for other children to pick on them,that same advise goes for adults aswell,because some adults have never learn't the neccessery skills to grow -up!:(
