"YTA. You're too focused on seeing the bully get admonished rather than the bullying stop. The counselor is trying to redress the root cause of the behavior. Perhaps he is more empathetic of the bully because he was a bully and has a way better understanding of the situation than you. Perhaps he became a counselor precisely because he wants to help kids going through tough times and acting out because of it. You seem to be approaching this with the logic of 'He's on the bullies side because he was a bully!' and that's absolutely foolish. Your son isn't entirely an innocent party here - he said something to the bully with the intent to hurt him. He may not have started the situation but he certainly escalated it. That's common behavior at his age but it's still worth redressing that just because you can say something hurtful doesn't mean you should. You completely undermined the counselor by bringing up his middle school behavior. Seriously, think about the situation a bit more objectively next time. You're in defense mode to protect your son and I get it, but you need to recognize that his response was just as if not more so problematic than the instigators behavior."
