As I take my kids to school this morning I notice right before the kids get out of car they are talking about this boy two cars in front of us. My DD says his name and DS says the boy is in his class. DD gets out first and then DS. DS looks at the boy with a nod with his head and says, sup (the kids last name). The kid walked right by him not even acknowledging him. They were arm length apart. The look on DS face was unforgettable. Poor little guy I just wanted to get out of my car and hug him and say, hey that's ok.... just shake it off. He is just missing a chance to know an amazing friend. But as I looked up the teachers who direct traffic was telling me to pull forward. This isn't the first time I've seen this happen to him. He is in 5th grade and many times when I go up to his class for a day they don't talk to him. It's like he is a loaner. He does have a few I know of that talk to him. I notice if he is outside when DD is he is all by himself. I'll walk over and talk to him but he just says he doesn't like the game. It's kick ball who doesn't like kickball. I know he likes kickball because he plays with us at home.
I'm just heart broken this morning. It's sad kids are being disrespectful to him. But then maybe there is another story I don't know about. DS is just the sweetest, caring, smart, and funny little guy I just don't see him being mean to others. However I believe his size might be the problem. He is 11 and the size of a 5 year old.
