I never thought ...

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

I never thought I would be the parent of a bullied child, but here I am. I never thought I would have to deal with catty, pre-teen girl arguments again, but here I am. I never thought I would have my heart ripped to shreds by my child's emotional pain, but here I am.

I think I'll be my daughters voice and here I am. I think I'll stand up for my daughter and here I am. I think I'll repair both her heart and mine and here I am.

Here I am and I know bullying is wrong and I can see first hand it's affects. Here I am and I know my daughter unfortunately is not the only one who has to deal with this. Here I am and I know she will be ok.

I hope it doesn't get worse and I'm able to be my daughters' advocate without eating the entire kitchen. I hope I can help heal her heart. I hope she can stop being afraid and gain back her self esteem.

    Being a parent is tough, we don't want our children to feel the pain that these bullies inflict. I was there during the middle school years of my daughter and thank God we all survived. Hugs to both of you. Hang in there, Thank God they all grow up.

    When I was a teenager I endured some pretty terrible bullying. After many heart to heart talks with my mom I realized that she always felt my pain even when I thought I was all alone. Just keep reminding her that your there for her no matter what. Things will get better, and I know from my own experience it has made me a stronger person. emoticon
