Well my oldest son (Sebastian almost 11) got in his first fist fight on Friday. Sebastian has walked away from fights with this bully many times. Here is what happened: The bully (age 11) was picking on a small younger boy (age 6), when Sebastian stepped in. The bully pushed first, Sebastian pushed back, the bully throw a punch and then the fist when both ways. The end result was Sebastian having to get stitches in his lip. I tried to talk to the mother so we could try and work this out, but all I had time to say was hello, I think we need to talk about what has happened.. and I got called a few choose words and the door slammed in my face. Of course I called the Police. Sadly the kid didn't get into much trouble because the fight when both ways. This family has been nothing but trouble since they moved in the area. The whole area is trying to get the family kicked out, but because they are on public housing we have to have documenation of everything they do. It seems like the Police are out here every other day for one reason or another. The officers even said they know them from before this.

I think Sebastians pride is more hurt then his mouth though.

Yep, sounds like he tried to handle it without going to the fists, so good for him.
