My son, who's 18 is in Phase 2 training. He is experiencing some aggressive behaviour towards him from another lad. Im not calling it bullying as yet. This other lad has had several digs at my son, punches, kicks, and attempted headbuts. Hes started on my son a few times. My son came in this morning from a night out and has a big black eye inflicted by this other lad who started on him in a bar and threw several punches. My son is very aware that hes in training and any incidents invariably get escalated and end up with severe disciplinaries or even being kicked out. So, so far hes been able to control his temper and hasnt retaliated at all. Its almost impossible to avaid this other lad, as hes a mate of one of my sons mates and has been for years apparently. Also he lives in the next town to us, so they end up on the same train home at weekends, and then hes there when they go out at night for a drink. What should he/I do? Ignore it and hope it goes away? Get him one to one and knock his head off(leaving himself open to all sorts of accusations afterwards) Get witnesses, and knock his head off(all witnesses deny anything happened etc) Report it to Troop staff? I ring Troop staff to advise them? We are worried about him. Hes always been a popular lad and never had to deal with anything like this. Myabe itll toughen him up, but is it wise to just let advise him to fight back? thanks in advance.
