I'm a 38 year old single parent of 3 boys. They are Brandon 14, Griffin 11, and Aidan 8. In my house boys will be boys and they are always at each other fighting or calling each other names. The thing is they are family and even though they do that I always assume they'll get past it because they're brothers and in the end though they may irritate each other, they stand together and defend each other from outside threats. Be that as it may, my youngest child is a little on the heavy side. I worry so much about his health because once been going thru the same thing. But according to his doctor he has to wanna change and though it may take a couple years she's confident he will. The thing is I worry because I know kids at school tease him and even his own brothers call him fat and whatnot. Though I constantly tell them to never call him that...it just seems it falls on deaf ears. I know that it gets to him and when he tells me about it i tell him not to listen to what anyone says about you. I tell him that I'm big to and so what...i don't let anyone bother me. But he's a kid and i know all the ridicule can damage him. I see these shows like Bully where kids kill themselves when they just can't take it anymore. And i pray that my son will never get to that point. It would destroy me if anything happened to any of my kids. I consider myself a strong person but if something happened to them i would seriously lose it. I would be filled with a rage unimaginable. My heart would die. I'm afraid for my son... I'm afraid I'm gonna fail to do my job...to protect him.
