Every school has one. The kid who teases everyone in the classroom. The one who pushes others around — literally and figuratively. The boy who the students say is a bully. We all pray that our son won't become a victim, but what if your little guy is the one doing the attacking? You may think, "no, not my son," but it's possible that love makes you blind to his bad behavior. So how can you tell if he is a bully? We rounded up seven classic signs that your son is the boy all his classmates fear.

Thank you for bringing this issue to attention as it is imperative to address it asap...although this can also be due to a way of getting attention, teasing siblings, and shock therapy ( to parents ) are commonly used. Regular discussions with your children one on one is an excellent way to discovering how and why they interpret and react as they do.
Evidently you hit a nerve on this one...thus the feedback you rec'd...good write...

Lol I thought that, my son is ADHD with ASD traits (being assessed for the latter) and he's been bullied through school by children who are true bullies because he sticks out like a sore thumb.

This list applies to boys and girls. This is not unique to boys. The only difference I would say is in the acceptance of aggressive behaviour. I have seen so many parents accept their sons behavior as "boys will be boys:" rather than blatant aggressive behaviour. Tackling, wrestling and general very tactical behavior is not acceptable and should not be encouraged as boy behavior.
