Garibay Soup: Kids are SO Mean!

Kids are SO Mean!

I'm still a bit upset about {THIS POST}, because Jayden's still upset. He's such a cute, sweet, hard to not love boy. I don't get how he doesn't have friends. I don't get how kids are so mean to him.

To be honest I would honestly like to pull him out of school and keep here where I can protect his feelings. He has such an amazing teacher though, and his school is REALLY helping him with his reading and doing things with him I probably would be no good at.

Nothing's worse than going out to the playground and not having friends to play with, or to go through elementary school not having a friend. And what's even worse is when you are the parent that knows your son has no friends. They throw his shoes in puddles, call him a loser, when he's so much more than they are. Both Gino and I have told him... Stand up for yourself, Jayden. You have OUR permission to do whatever you need to do to protect yourself from little asshole children {okay, we didn't say asshole children to him.... but that's what they are!} And you know what he says.... It's not right. It's not right to be mean to other children.

Jayden, I'm going to tell you right now that I know you were put on this earth for things that are so wonderful, because you are so wonderful.

Homeschooling isn't for everyone, but don't be put off by the fact you feel like you couldn't teach him. You taught him to walk, to talk, to eat, right? What does a teacher actually do that you're incapable of? And there are plenty of curriculums and things out there.

I have aspergers syndrome, among other things, and was bullied relentlessly at school. Homeschooling was the best desicion my parents made for me.

As I say it's not for everyone, and I'm not trying to tell you you have to or anything, but don't let the idea that 'i can't teach him' deter you.

Sending big hugs your way. I can relate in some ways to this. Although I home school my children, I do it half of the week at my work which is a private school. So my kids go to lunch, P.E., and other activities with the children of the school. However, I teach them their lessons in the library (I am the media specialist of the school). My daughter does awesome in social situations, but my son is different. He gets picked on and he comes back crying. He is not like the other boys. They play wild and name call and he doesn't. Words are his love language and they hurt him deeply when they are in any way negative. He tends to be a loner and I hate to watch him play alone in the corner or sit alone at meals while the other children eat in groups. It breaks my heart.

So, yes, I understand the thoughts running around in your head. I can't tell you how frustrated I get with the children in the school (a Christian private school noless!). I wonder how they could be so insensitive and cruel.

Big hugs from one Mother to another.

Ugh Amanda, this hurts my heart! One of the hardest things to see is when kids are not being respected by their peers. As a counselor, I of course take these kids under my wing and work with them and introduce them to other kids, groups, social situations, etc. You never need a lot of friends, but definitely someone to feel safe and comfortable with =) Is there a counselor at his school? How can I help?!
