He's been having some behavioral issues lately, along with how he's treating others. Friday he gets a note sent home stating how rude he is to teachers, and how he was caught putting "Kick Me" signs on the back of children he was laughing at. ...Well, that just won't fly in this house...
He had to wear this on the back of his shirt the entire time we were in Walmart. He was mortified. Angry. Livid. ...and once he began to see the children around his age, and older pointing and laughing, but never saying anything to him, he realized how much it Hurt. It hurts to be laughed at, and gawked at all because someone else felt like dragging you down. It hurts to watch people laugh at you, yet never help you. We then explained to him, what he was feeling, was the EXACT sensation those othe rkids felt while he sat there laughing. He said he'd never forget that happened to him, that we did that. We said, "Good. Those children will never forget YOU bullied them in the 3rd grade because you wanted to be cool. Do you feel cool now?"
...and then we grounded him from his TV. You know...for good measure.
I'm sure there are some moms who are going to come and here and bash you because they would never dare to hurt their precious widdle babies feeeeelings. Don't listen to them. They'll feel differently when their kid is 25 and can't hold down a job because they don't think adhering to rules applies to them and the boss thinks it's odd when they break down in a sobbing heap in the break room because they recieved some criticism.
