My daughter, a concerned mother, wrote this last night and shared with everyone on Facebook: "I'd rather have a parent be overly concerned for our children then not concerned at all." -Principal at my son's school after our conversation / I want to thank my family for showing so much love and support for my beautiful little boy my son. My son has experienced bullying. Yes, even at 7 years old and in 2nd grade, bullying exists. We as parents need to teach our children that every single one of us has value. And that we need to respect one another. Love and ...take care of one another. Even if we are different and don't always agree or view things in the same way. My mom always taught us, "If you're not going to say anything nice, don't say it at all." Words can be pretty hurtful, and although as adults, we have learned to have thicker skins, children, alot of times, because of their innocence don't understand or know how to cope with mean words, insults, or other physical or mental abuse. We are their angels. We are their protectors. We have to be better at standing up for them and helping them find their voice and stand up for themselves and others. Speak to your child. Let them know that it is ok to tell their teacher, their parents, their aunts or uncles or anyone else that someone is mistreating them. Show love and compassion. We saw changes in my son. He didn't want to go to school. He would come home with scratches, or a light bruise on his leg. We were lucky to have caught it on time and that his teachers cared and loved him enough to call us when they noticed things with him were not quite the same. I directly spoke to his principle, with his grandma Coco by my side, his father spoke to his teachers and things got resolved rather quick. My son likes going to school now and understands the importance of speaking up. He has also learned that a bully is not your friend. Even if they promise to stop hitting you. I will not sweep this under the rug. It is a very serious and important thing affecting so many children, and adolescents. We have to eliminate it. I share this with you because I care. Because I love my son. Because I love our children...I love your children. If you are a parent, please watch this with your child as I watched it with mine. I am grateful that my brother loves my son so much that he gave us a copy and personally took a copy to the principle at my son' school when he found out what my son had experienced. There is always hope. Together, we can make a difference. Together we can help save a childs life. KEEP SPREADING THE LOVE.
