Bullying, disrespect and hate, oh my.....

This morning I kissed my oldest son goodbye when I dropped him off at school praying for the best after 2 weeks of bullying and being picked on by random BRATS.(sorry I'm upset)  My heart hurt as I drove away and watched him walk into the school slow and hesitant but with his head held high....

6 hours later I get a text saying "I'm in the Principal's office, I got slammed into the lockers"

I'm sitting at work on a busy Friday FREAKING about how my child is and my thoughts running wild.  My husband left work and went to pick him up.  Turns out a 12 year old boy ATTACKED my son in the locker room because he thought my 10 year old son stole his lock?  Ummmm what?  While my son was telling me the turn of events with tears in his eyes, I asked "were you scared?"  and he said "yes mom I was really scared, I didn't know what was happening".

Why couldn't I protect him, why does my child have to go through this?  What has happened to kids nowadays?  Lack of respect for themselves and others, ESPECIALLY adults. 

I took my son for hot chocolate (extra whipped cream) and told him he did the right thing getting away and telling a teacher and that I am so sorry he has to deal with this.  He said "mom, your the best mom a kid could ever have".  I squeezed him as tight as I could and didn't want to let go.  I HATE that he has to deal with this.  HATE it.....

Awww I hate it as well that your son has to go through this. I have a 7 year old son and he just started second grade not long ago and the older kids pick on him. Everyday when I drop him off I get so sad knowing that I am not there to protect him or defend him against the bully. Your son did the right thing and you as mom are doing an incredible job by being there for him always.

this is so sad and crazy! i don't know what is wrong with this world! my heart breaks for your son because my 6 year old dealt with it last year and it's heart wrenching! he'll have better days and as mothers all we can do is support, love and hold our children tight, show them the "Right" way and let them handle the way we've taught them while in these situations...as hard as it is to see them experience this, it's ultimately going to make them stronger, wiser and a friend who will offer to stick up for another student going through it! kudos mama...i'm here with you:) extra cherries on top!!! xo
