Hoped To Raise My Children By Setting The Right Example...

I don't know if this is the right place for this.. but... I have always been the type of person who took on bullies even when they were bigger than me. I hoped to teach my children not to be bullies by setting the example. Several years ago I had my youngest son in the car and we were driving home from his Jr. High. The weather was horrible with snow flakes the size of snowballs so I was going slow to avoid a slide off. I saw 2 boys picking on a 3rd younger one, I slammed on my breaks and slid to a stop against some bushes. Madder than heck I approached the 2 bullies and told them to go pick on someone else their own size... It turns out the three of them were brothers and they were playing when the insane woman came barrelling out of the snow and scared the carp out of them.. My son and I still laugh over it but he did learn not to tolerate bullies and to stand up for what you believe in even if you look foolish.

What a great and funny story sixand0. Well done. I sometimes wish my parents had been like that.

I actually set it for 4 kids that day.. turns out my son knew all of them and they still laugh about it to this day.

Well done! Children learn by example and you set a fine one that day! :)
