    Re: to deal with

    Technically it's a prepositional verb but many books call these phrasal verbs.

    It is used when we want to say that a problem, difficult situation, difficult person, etc. has to be/ has been resolved.

    The head teacher dealt with the badly behaved student by suspending him from school.

    We must deal with the problem/situation before it gets worse.

    Hope that helps
