And I am happy she did. Who am I talking about? My six year old daughter. For those who may be thinking that I am raising a bully, think again. My kids (ages 6
& 9)were at the park around the corner playing. They were doing what kids do and going back and forth with the teasing and playing. A little boy about 8 or 9 years old said something to my dd and she responded. Apparently he didn't like what she said so he slapped her and kicked her...multiple times. That's right, this kid KICKED AND SLAPPED my dd. So I'm guessing he thought that after he assaulted her that it was over. He turns around to leave and she screams, runs, and jumps on his back punching him in the side of his head. At the same time, my 9 year old ds stepped to the boy and started a fight with him. So, my dd is on his back nd my son is in front of him and they are going in on him. Somehow the fight gets broken up and the kids come around the corner, my dd crying.They tell us what happened and we go around the corner looking for said kid. The kid sees us coming and takes off on his bike. We aren't going to chase him so we find out where he lives. We get to his house, speak to his parents and he starts lying about what he didn't do and saying that my kids jumped on him for no reason. All, yes ALL of the other kids at the park said that he was lying and told the story of what happend. Long story short, the kid got in trouble and is in the house. Now, I don't usually condone fighting, but I sure as hell don't condone bullying. I gave my kids a high five. I also told them that while fighting is never the answer, they are allowed to defend themselves and each other.
