A Happy Memory

Posted: 12/30/2011

Gunnar is my 10 year old son. He is in 5th grade; is very small for his age; wears glasses and is in all the high classes in his grade. So with all that said he gets bullied for being a "stand out" in the class.

Gunnar was getting bullied a recess and we had to step in to help. He at one point was wanting to go to school less days then the other kids just to avoid those days at recess. Many talks with the counselor at school finally stopped it.

We took a stand together as a family and met with the counselor at school, who in turn met with the students and families of the bullies.

Best gift ever this year from Gunnar is page in his Memory Book from school he brought home from school this year.

"A happy memory for me was when my mom helped handle bullies last year because I was having a hard time and to this day I don't get bullied anymore. My mom helps me through lots of my problems and that's why I love her."

I must say I have been re-reading that page over and over.

It is a gift that keeps on giving.
