As a mother myself, I know that I would do a lot of things to keep my kids from getting hurt. But there are fights that we should let our kids handle. Just because the Megan said mean and cruel things to Sarah, her daughter, Lori decided to humiliate the former. And that led to suicide. How will she be able to live with herself after that?
One time, my 10- year old son went home crying and only after much prodding did he told me that a bully kicked him at the back during a basketball game when he wouldn't hand the ball he got after a rebound play. The bully was a burly boy of 14 and was the nephew of a policeman in our street. What's a mom to do? So I went to the bully's house to talk to his mother. On our way to their house, my son saw him get inside. I told the mother what her son did to mine and that all I asked is his apology. I was so disappointed with what she said, Hindi pa nga umuuwi ang lintik na iyon e. At kapag nakita mo, e di sipain mo din ang walanghiya! What the hell!!! She was obviously lying because her son passed by her on the way inside. And for her to tell me to kick her son? Anyway, I just told my son it was useless to talk to them and that he should just avoid playing with that bully in the future. Although I really wanted to kick the bully, it wouldn't set a good example with my kid. If I went the Lori Drew way, I really should have kicked him but again, it was not my fight. I even felt a twinge of pity for the kid, seeing his mother like that.
I jut hope that bullies everywhere, on the street, on the internet gets punished for their crime.
