We’ve had quite a few new experiences lately and not all pleasant ones. If you read my previous post, you know that Gavin was the target of a very mean spirited child yesterday while on the playground.
I’m not sure if that qualifies as bullying but the kids was, for lack of a better word, a jerk.
He targeted Gavin for being different and made fun of him for being unable to do things on the playground well.
My question to you is this.
How do you handle situations in which your child is being made fun of for being different? What have you done in the past? When this happens, if your child even aware that they are being victimized?
In Gavin’s case, he was completely oblivious to what was happening and so if we had made a big deal about it, we would have been calling attention to something that Gavin was blissfully unaware of.
We did our best to keep them separated and then finally just left.
I’ll be honest, both Lizze and I were extremely angry, especially because the parent of this child was sleeping in a car, one hundred yards away and not supervising his charming son.
