We were standing in line at Walgreens.. and there was a lady and her grand daughter in front of us.. the little girl was around 7 or 8 yrs old... she kept looking at Nathan, then finally said You're blind aren't you? She looked a ther grandma and said LOOK HE'S BLIND he's wearing glasses...
Nathan ran behind me and said That's not right, make her quit talking to me!
I said I know baby, that's not a nice thing to say to people... the little girl walked on.. then she came back and looked like she was going to say something else and I said DON'T! So she went back to her grandmother and they checked out and walked outside.. the adult never said anything...
So we checked out and the grandmother and her were waiting outside and made her apologize... I told her.. I appreciate you making her apologize but it probably would have meant more to us, and taught her a better lesson had you made her do it inside in front of all those people... not wait out here for us. I said I think you need to go home and have a talk about manners!
Then we got in our car and left.
that is awful, the poor boy (and you) i hope he hasn't been traumatised by that. i think if that should happen again you should just turn around and say 'AND YOURE RUDE' i'm glad she was made to apologise i'm just sorry it was needed and a bit late though, i know children dont know their boundaries but like you said parents really need to teach them.
it seems to be a part of growing up but i really wish it wasnt. we just have to teach our children to be strong and as long as they know there is nothing wrong with them in our eyes they should do fine, i really think words hurt so much more than a thump from a bully. glad he is ok after it all though
People can be really rude. And shame on the grandmother for not knowing any better! I'm sorry you and your child had to go through that. I know its a part of life in a way for kids to be curious but to not teach her that was rude was simply wrong.
