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.
