What's a good 9 year old appropriate equivalent to 'oh do f%#* off'?

Ds could really use one! Repeated run ins with a boy who thinks it's funny to goad him. Ds has tried the usual reasoning, ignoring, blah blah and actually just needs to tell him to eff off (in adult world would have happened ages ago tbh), but ...what's the 9 year old equivalent! Thought it would be easy but can't think of one that isn't going to get him into trouble with teachers etc. ..?

Jog on?

Is that suitable for a 9 year old? i dont know but I like saying it and no swearing

donnie Fri 01-Aug-14 17:47:09

he could try 'my mum thinks I ought to tell you to just fuck off and stop being a wanker but I'm not allowed to swear'. grin

What donnie said grin

FrogStomp Fri 01-Aug-14 17:48:27

Depends really. I would have said ignoring is the best reaction but you say your ds has already tried this. Can he not persevere with this tactic, after all if he shows no reaction the goader won't have what he wants.

grin at donnie

Go boil your head?

Or just yawn and walk away.

He needs to develop a death stare. Don't say anything, just a look that would freeze sunbeams. <ds 2 was a master>

Bore Off!

My children say:
Do one
Get absolutely lost

"Put a sock in it, you loser." Said in the most wearied, disinterested and withering way possible.

Pipbin Fri 01-Aug-14 17:57:03

'you're ugly and your mum dresses you funny.'

'do clear off dear'.

Well,ds4 (3) told a bossy girl to " Go away and catch chicken pox" today....she scuttled off not sure if she's got chicken pox yet though!

A classic "whatever" in bored tone would serve well I think. Just something that shows complete and utter disinterest. Anything elaborate shows he's bothered because he's put a lot of thought into it, and a silly bullying kid probably wouldn't listen anyway.

Put an egg in your shoe and beat it.

Make like tree and leave.

Run along now mate, you're embarrassing yourself.

Salmotrutta Fri 01-Aug-14 18:19:20

a tree...

olivespickledonions Fri 01-Aug-14 18:21:19

Apple, yes I agree. A bored 'whatever' or 'so?'

Patrickstarisabadbellend Fri 01-Aug-14 18:22:22

Go take your face for a shit.

AngieBolen Fri 01-Aug-14 18:22:48

Shut up and get lost, loser.

Although I like donnies suggestion.

AngieBolen Fri 01-Aug-14 18:24:43

OK, maybe not the loser bit.

Have you spoken to the teachers about it?

Picklepest Fri 01-Aug-14 18:29:36

Keep it simple. A few of these might escalate. I think whatever and or laugh. That's one you can use as a family if someone does something stupid. It's more natural.

PoirotsMoustache Fri 01-Aug-14 18:33:57

You could get him to say 'Pardon? I didn't hear you' over and over till the bully gets bored of repeating himself.

KitbitAgain Fri 01-Aug-14 18:43:51

Hahaha love Donnie's suggestion!!
Also like the withering 'loser' responses I think that might work actually and I think ds could pull it off.
Also like 'pardon?' Until he gets bored.
You lot are masters <bows down>

Take the point about involving the teachers Angie, ds has said he wants to deal with it at the moment but I'll be keeping a close eye. smile

I SO want to use Donnie's..... dammit.....

cdwales Fri 01-Aug-14 18:45:48

It was always 'Get Lost!' in my day...

AngieBolen Fri 01-Aug-14 18:48:12

DD (who is (yo) tells me "Shut up and go away" is effective, and if they don't she pushes them. hmm I asked if she got in to trouble for pushing, and she said if you explain to the teacher you were being hassled you don't get into trouble. But I think she is talking about a couple of boys in the class the teachers are well aware of re; behavior.
