A mum has taken to social media to defend her son after he punched another pupil who had been bullying him 'for years'.

Posting on Facebook, the mum explained that her son had been suspended after he 'beat up' another boy who had been 'tormenting and bullying' him.

Explaining that the school had repeatedly 'done nothing' to resolve the issues, the woman said she was not upset with her son after finding out he had resorted to violence.

"Five days of OSS for beating up the kid that has been tormenting and bullying him since middle school," the mum explained in a post.

"I know as a parent I’m suppose to be upset with him for resorting to violence or getting suspended, but I’m not. Not even a little bit. For years the school has failed [him].

"When this kid has constantly threatened to beat [him] up along with several of his friends, the school did nothing.

"When this kid followed [him] down the hall threatening him and making fun of him AND it was all captured on video, the school did nothing.

"When other kids told teachers and administrators that this kid was threatening [him], the school did nothing.

"When this kid took to social media, voicemails, and texting threats, the school did nothing.

"When this kid threatened [him] over and over in every class they have together. The school did nothing."

The mum explained that despite sending a 'lengthy email' begging teachers to intervene, their response was to 'have him and his bully sign a no contact contract'.

But it was when the other boy began to threaten his younger brother, that the woman's son decided he would take matters into his own hands.

"So when this kid threatened [him] (while on the bus) and then moved on to making fun of his Dad and then threatening his 11-year-old brother, [he] decided that he would quit relying on the school and the adults who are suppose to protect him and HE would do something," she added.

"Three punches and his bully screamed like a baby, his minion friends shut up, and this morning the bully wouldn’t even look at him. Problem solved."

Other Facebook users were quick to comment on the post, and while many said they did not condone violence, they sympathised with the boy's actions.

One wrote: "I agree violence isn’t the answer but your son was patient for a very long time and schools don’t do what they should. I would be proud of him for sticking up for himself and his brother."

While another said: "I am glad he took care of the problem himself. The school should have stopped this long ago."
