If kids retaliate they usually get the same punishment as the aggressor. I have tons of parents that tell their kid to hit back. As a parent, I get it. My boys were bigger than most of their peers, so we didn't have this problem. Just know that your kid will get punished. If your kid knows that you are fine with the punishment, then they are usually fine with it too. Sometimes you just have to physically stand up for yourself.
Yes, I get that he will be punished too. Plus it's usually the second one that gets caught so he may run a greater risk of getting in trouble. I'm ok with it if it stops him from getting picked on and not wanting to go to school.
