This happened a couple weeks ago.
My daughter is in 4th grade. Across the street lives a boy who is in 5th grade and clearly bigger than her.
Well, the boy decided to pick a fight with her, big mistake. He was trying to look tough in front of the other boys while they were all walking home from school.
Problem is, she fears nothing.
I guess they went at it like kids will do, and at the end he kicked her in the back, which was followed by her kicking him so hard that he ran home crying. Yes, the bigger and older boy ran home crying.
What's worse, he told his dad what happened and dad ended up at our front door to find out what happened. of I had been there, I am sure I would have busted out laughing, but my wife had to handle it instead.
She made my daughter go to his house an apologize. When she got there, the kid started yelling at his dad to get her away from the house.
Now, the boy's dad stands outside waiting for his son to get home. I guess he thinks my kid is a bully, lol.
I had to be the mature Dad in this situation, but I'm pretty sure I failed. I mean seriously, how could I be mad at the kid?
It made me think about when I was that age. Neighborhood bully picked a fight with me, and I ran. I got home and told my mom. Biggest mistake of my life because she whipped me and told me I better not ever run from somebody like that again. The next day, the bully got a beat down, and guess what? His parents showed up at my house to get me in trouble. Mom sent them on their way quickly And I got along great with that kid from that day forward.
