Today you're getting one big confession. Lately we've been dealing with some stuff at Brayden's school and it's really making me wish we could back to the times where things were much simpler; learning colors/shapes/numbers, singing nursery ryhmes, going on play dates and learning to play with others.
Take me back to the time where the biggest problem was who stole whose sippy cup.
But that's not where we're at. With Brayden we're in grade school and that is a whole other ball game. I'm not sure I'm quite ready for this roller coaster ride we are on but clearly there's no getting off so I just need to hang on tight.
Brayden has been getting bullied and pushed around at school and it's gotten to the point where I had to talk with the teacher. We have given him all the advice we could (walk away, tell them to stop, stand up for yourself, tell an adult) but it is all failing. Most of the issues we are experiencing are happening at lunch which is kind of a free for all. The kids certaintly act different when the lunch Mom is there and out on the playground than they do inside the classroom.
This is breaking my Mama heart so bad. My son, (who is not perfect) but who is really sweet and kind and would never instigate anything, is being brought down. He is coming home sad and not having fun at school anymore. This is not OK. The last thing I want is for my son to stop shining.
I am very happy I called and spoke with the teacher. She is aware of the situation but didn't know everything since she is not at lunch. She assured me she would put a stop to it and we will see how things go from here.
I was not ready for this stuff to start this soon. I blinked and now we are in the grade school trenches where kids are being molded for their future. I just want my son to have a happy, positive experience at school and I truly wish kids could just be kind to eachother.
