Very proud

Apr 14, 2017 10:41 PM

Hi everyone. I just wanted to share a proud moment.. Today my daughter stood up to a bully who was her friend ..

The bully brag that she was hitting another kid with a stick and my daughter looked at her and said ""you know what I don't want to be friends with you anymore because you are a bully and I don't want to be friends with my past self ""

I told her how proud I am of her for standing up for the other kid. . She looked at me and said "" mom bad enough it was the other kid birthday and he got hit. ""

I do have to add on . That in reality doesn't the bully need a good friend to help her to go on the right path ?

Great job! I hope others saw this and might go home and reflect on how brave your daughter was to say something. Please share a high five with your daughter from me. That was brave.

That's so awesome she stood up to a bully. I think by her dissolving her friendship with the bully she's being a good example to the bully. If the bully really wants her friendship she might think about changing her ways. She can still say hello to her and be cordial but show her that by not hanging out with her she doesn't condone that kind of behavior.

Thank you Frustrated . She told me that the bully has to prove herself first then they can be friends again . My hubby and I are raising her to always be kind to others . . There is another kid in her school that she is not friends with but she told me that they don't have to be friends but she still would like to wave hi passing through the halls 😊.

Kindness is something we all can practice. It costs nothing to give and sets a great example. Of course the person that we are kind to feels great but we feel even better because we know we did the right thing. The world could use alot more of it. Your daughter is a hero for having the nerve to stand up for something she believes in. Greater than that she took a huge chance personally by setting the standard of what she would tolerate. It is just so hard for our kids these days with social media and growing up. At least when we were growing up we could get away and have some piece at home. I know kids do not have to be so plugged in but the reality is they are. It shows that you guys are doing a great job raising her and apparently she has great self esteem and confidence because she was not at all afraid to do what was right. Great kid! Bullies suck and can be found at every age. Hopefully this one will reflect on her actions. I agree with the comment to still be civil to her by saying hi in the halls at school but not hanging out or being friends with her any longer. She (the bully) hopefully will learn from this and be a better person. Your daughter is great!

LMB. Thank you so much for your kind words. I appreciate it. In life we all do the best we can to survive. And together we all are doing great . I think just knowing we are not alone helps a lot. ❤
