    How would I say that my son is not rough, would not push anyone around or be rude.
    Thanks

    Je sais que mon fils n'est pas "dur"/"un caïd"/ "une brute", ...

    The Wordreference dictionary suggests "violent". ;)

    Tu sembles vouloir dire que ton garçon est "poli", "bien élevé". Non ?
    (i.e. not rough)

    I eliminated "violent" and "brutal" because they didn't imply "impoli".

    Is méchant too weak?

    In my opinion, "méchant" is not "rough". One can be "méchant" without being "rough".
