Healing

Just a note...from a mother's heart... #1 wound up getting a phone call from a friend today, last min. get together for the Home Coming dance...So, he went... all was well and then we get a phone call not an hour after the dance started..."Come get me..."
My heart is breaking for my oldest... He went to the dance, started dancing to the music...and was quickly heckled by the 10th grade class "Go away! Your making a fool of yourself..." Not one of his 9th grade friends stood up for him...only stood there and whispered... One of his friends actually told him to go away... I just don't get people!!! Who are these kids parents to teach them to be so cruel.
So, my wonderful hubby and I... as #1's parents... lift him up tonight and say we love you! No matter what ANY stupid teenager says... You are fearfully and wonderfully made and God loves you Jr.!!!
If you guys could find it in your hearts...maybe lift up a little prayer for him that God would heal his heart and help and comfort and protect him through this....

Kids are so cruel. We have a 17 year old who hates to go to the dances he says there "stupid". Hats off to your son for being the confident one to get up and dance. It stinks that the insecure kids ruined it for him. I hope your son's week gets better.

There are times when I actually feel hatred for certain kids. I know that kids are kids and can be occasionally cruel and that yes, they will regret it when they have kids of their getting picked on...but in the meantime I want to sit down with their parents. Some parents feel that a little razzing builds character. And I do as well. But what these kids do today isn't razzing. It's pure evil. I'm so sorry that happened to your son and I will lift him up in prayer, Christine.

Love,
Julie

I can not believe bullies, tell your son not to worry I was bullied all through my chilhood and I am doing just super fine now and my bullies they are doing no better than me in fact some worse, so send my love to him and he needs to sit and remember that he is such a lovely young man and one day he will wake up with a beautiful family of his own happy and will think of that distant memory just what it is distant, he is lucky to have such beautifuk parents to guide him through these hard times/

Your posting reminded me of a similar incident when my son was about 11. It hurt my heart so deeply. BUT time does heal and today as he is the father of a 2 and 5 year old I know he turned out just fine. Yours will too. With a stong foundation, they flourish. personally, I think one of the the greatest lessons is to learn how NOT to be.

I will definately keep you son in my heart & you too! I think it sometimes hurts even more to be a mother & see your child hurt. Good thoughts for everyone today.

And here I thought it was mostly the girls who were cruel. What didn't kill me in Junior High and High School just made me stronger. The tall, gawky girl everyone used to call Olive Oyl ended up a tall statuesque young woman (now a frumpy hausfrau carrying a little leftover baby weight, but I had my moments!).

The memories do stay with you, though: I remember a boy in Jr. High coming up and saying "Want to dance?" and I said, "Yeah," and he said "Go ahead." Fun stuff! But totally laughable today.

Remember, all these miserable experiences are character builders and it sounds like your son is building up quite a stash; it will only make him a better person and teach him compassion, I hope. I will def. send up a little prayer for him. Stay strong!

Oh, I don't even know you or your son but my heart breaks for all of you. I am the mom of three so I can totally relate to how you feel. Oh, the pain some kids inflict on others in order to boost their own egos.

Prayers for all of you,
Melissa

I am so sorry your son had to endure such horrible treatment. I too have a 9th grade son and am struggling with trying to protect him from others and their snide comments. I has been incredibly difficult. I am going to pray for your # 1 tonight.
