I love homeschooling! Learning is a way of life for our family. Most days you will find us exploring our Central Florida community, having fun while learning. I am constantly looking for new and interactive ways to engage my older children.

  1. Do you know of any good strategies for teens to deal with bullies? Our son is being bullied because he’s homeschooled by kids in his sport group. Please help me, help him.Do you know of any good strategies for teens to deal with bullies? Our son is being bullied because he’s homeschooled by kids in his sport group.

    He is 13 yrs old, and they tease him about not having any friends. He told them he has two good friends in Canada, and two in USA. He has a deeper understanding of the differences between friends, and acquaintances and was ridiculed because he only has four friends. Now they’ve gone on to call him a ‘dumb-homeschooler’ and I can assure you, he is not dumb as he’s made the honour roll again this year. They talk about dirty stuff, and assume he doesn’t know what they’re talking about because he’s homeschooled and use that as an opportunity to make fun of him. They exclude him from team conversation and have even gotten physical and pulled his shirt to move him out of ‘their way’….the list goes on and on. He came home crying last night and it breaks my heart to see a sweet-natured kid who would never hurt anyone, reduced to this.

    Please help me, help him.

    • Shelly,

      Are you a part of our community on Facebook? We have an awesome group of families there and you’re welcome to join in. I’m going to ask them your question to get more insight.

      We’ve dealt with a bit of bullying over the years, but ended up just leaving the groups when we couldn’t get things resolved, which I know isn’t what you want to do. I’m going to see what some of the other parents say.
