The school has just phone to let me know my son might need a hug when he gets home. He has a split lip and has got a sore set of ribs. He went to the defence of a class mate who he thought was being unfairly treated and ran down to where a group had converged and tried to help. Sadly, it didn’t go as planned when the hot tempered bloke he was trying to help decided to attack him. He got a smack to the mouth, punched in the belly and knocked to the ground. Suprisingly, he was still trying to defend this child when the teachers arrived. He has been spoken to about bad friend choices by the principal and I have been asked to talk to him when he gets home…might take him out for a treat and even though it hasn’t gone well this time I hope he continues to have a spectacular social conscience. I kind of hope the other boys get stung by ants….I know that’s not nice but the Mummy bear is wide awake! Whilst not the greatest outcome for him I am just so proud to know that I am sending such a great little man out into the world….

  • You should feel very proud of yourself too for bring up such a great young man. Well done mummy.

  • What a brave and loyal son you have.


  • It is very sad and this is the reason why a lot of people don’t help others in need for fear of getting hurt themselves! Brave son you have there :)


  • oh my goodness!!! Where were the teachers with this violence in school????!!!!!!!

    • In big school yards they don’t have enough teachers on yard duty to see everything that happens. I was very shy when I was little and was often bullied and hit etc. There was one boy who stood back and watched a few times. One day he stepped in and not so gently shoved some kids out of the way and helped me up, then yelled at them. I later found out he told the teachers about the incidents and told them what he had done to stop it. That particular time I had nasty scratches and bruises as well by the time I got home from school so I had to tell Mum the whole story including the fact that the boy had helped me etc. Mum went to school with me the next morning and saw the Principal. No names were mentioned but there was an announcement and strong lecture at next morning assembly. The bullies stayed clear of me after that, then started on the boy that “saved” me, so I plucked up courage to tell our teacher.
