I had to smile the other day. My oldest son came out to me and said, “Mom did you know there is a little boy picking on Honey at school?” This was news to me as she had not mentioned it before. He explained that there was this boy that was pushing her and picking on her. I wasn’t overly concerned because Honey can take care of herself and she didn’t mention it to me.
I told him she should tell the teacher and he said she can’t because it is at lunch. What made me smile was that my son was NOT happy with his behavior. He told Honey that if he kept picking on her he and Nick were going to come to his school to take care of it.
I always wanted to have a boy before I had a daughter for this very reason, brotherly protection. It warms my heart to see them so interested in how she is treated. I know this means she may have an uphill battle when it comes to “boys”. However in the end she has two big brothers that would do anything for her.
Note: She doesn’t seem to concerned about this little boy and it is something I’m monitoring with her, I really think is a case of boys being boys with girls (you know I like you so I have to be mean type of thing)
