What the Expert Says:

You have two avenues in approaching this issue. One is work with the school administration to provide supervision in areas that are open to physical assaults. Also to strengthen the policy against bullying, physical or verbal assault, or other offenses. The other is to proceed with charges of assault. This may mean the parents of the student who assaulted your son would be legally responsible for his actions, medical bills, and counseling.

I do recommend counseling for your son. His anxiety indicates he needs to learn how to avoid being assaulted, and that his feelings are normal under the circumstances.

Thinking outside the box, investigate having your son take martial arts after school. Martial arts may help him to gain confidence and teach him to protect himself. Martial arts also teaches that engaging is a last resort.
