- How should I deal with this? (Kids fighting content)
Tell him you are happy he stuck up for his sister but you don’t really want him to go around lamping people.
Good old fashioned common sense innit. Also crikey has kinda nailed it in a harsh but fair way! 🙂
I would be interested to know how you sorted it? Have you spoken to your son? The neighbors? What was the outcome?Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
Of course it does.
Tell him next time to stay out of it & let his sister get a good hiding so the 7yr old bully boy can think he can get away with it every time
The OP had a fight in a zoo* hence the comment.
The serious answer was given in the OP anyway and repeated by Scotsroutes

7yr old next door neighbour punched my 3yr old daughter in the face and tried to start kicking her. My 6yr old son saw this and lamped the 7yr old – gave him a bit of a doing – there was blood.
Deep down I’m happy that he stuck up for his sister, but dont really want him to go around lamping people.
How would you deal with it?Posted 4 years agodannybgoodeSubscriber
My 2p’s worth – a 7 yo attacked a 3 yo and the 3 yo’s brother defended her.
Perhaps explain that its ok to defend his sister in such situations but should try to avoid kicking 7 shades of poo out of the said attacker and wherever possible should avoid force all together.
Also, perhaps get one of the tutors at the tae kwon do club to have a word with him and explain when its ok to use the skills he has learned.

then a swift slap may be necessary…
But by all accounts from the OP, it was not a swift slap. It was a beating that drew blood.
I think that when dealing someone so young, 7 years old you should teach restraint. They are at the stage when they are growing and learning about boundaries. Someone older might be able to distinguish between a situation where they need to ‘slap’ or simply stand between the child who is trying to kick a little girl.
Edit…I just don’t thing it is wise to encourage a slap fist mentality in someone so young.Posted 4 years agostratobikerMember
Fair play. He nipped it in the bud. It won’t happen again.
Tell him he done good for looking after his sister.
You take sh1t you be given sh1t, and he’s not taking any for his crew!

EDIT – re your title “How should I deal with this?”….don’t worry, you boy already took care of things!!!
The 7yr olds parents saw it all going on and simply said to their son that if they go about picking on little girls they will more often than not end up with their head in their hands. To be fair on them it was all over very quickly and they had no time to react to their kid hitting my daughter before my son waded in.Posted 4 years agobobmac892Subscriber
I have kids of a similar age I think the wee fella did well sticking up for his sister but yeah bringing in a lesson about restraint and not going OTT is just common sense. The lesson sandwiched between praise so as not to emphasise any any one aspect too strongly.Posted 4 years ago
