His First Bully...
Jack has his first bully. I knew it was going to happen eventually. It's heartbreaking. Not to worry, though. THIS Mama Bear is all over it like a fly on shit. I've been on it since the first encounter. Yesterday was the third incident and everyone knows it's not Jack that's the problem. Even other kids stick up for him because, frankly, he's a warm and likeable kid.
I just want to scream at the kid who's doing this to him. I won't because I know better, but I really want to. My guess is that this kid is very troubled and he learned everything he knows from his dear old dad. How do you expect a child to be kind when he never sees it at home? Not my problem.
My only priority is to protect my son's rights. Not only is he special needs, he would also never hurt a fly and expects everyone else to be be kind, too. Unfortunately, Jack has had to learn that not everyone is going to be nice and it makes him sad. He may be on the verge of realizing that he's different.
I just want to break something because I'm so upset about it! I'm no helicopter Mom at all, but I have to be his advocate. No one, special needs or not, should ever fall prey to a bully.
