Mother Handles Her Bully’s Son Perfectly.
Bullying is bad in a lot of schools. But what is one really to do about it? Perhaps if you’re a parent of a bully you can do some things.
One mother, named Cierra, caught her 13-year-old son making fun of his classmates by teasing them about the clothes they wear, especially pointing out that they got their clothes at Goodwill, Walmart or other low-end clothing stores. Well, she wanted none of that. So she set out to teach him a lesson.
Cierra had her son take $20 of his own money – money that he had saved in his allowance – and go buy a week’s worth of clothes at Goodwill. Needless to say, he wasn’t real happy about that. But he had most certainly crossed the line and was going to pay for his very hateful remarks to his classmates. He sulked the whole time while shopping and sluggishly dragged the clothes he was buying throughout the store. Cierra snapped a photo of him doing that and posted it to Facebook. It went viral fast, with more than 290,000 people sharing her post.
This is what she posted with the picture: “So lately, my 13-year-old son had been acting a little… entitled. Acting like he’s too good to shop at Wal-Mart or making snarky comments about kids at school who shop at the goodwill and quite a few other things. I don’t tolerate that. Today, he took his own $20 to the Goodwill to buy clothes to wear the entire week to school. Whatever he found is what he would have to wear. He isn’t happy and shed a few tears but I firmly believe in 15 years he will look back and laugh at the day his Mom made him shop at Goodwill. I want to teach my kids that money isn’t everything and if you have to degrade other people because of where they shop, then you too will shop there. Side note, I love the Goodwill!!”
The good thing that came of it instantly is that her son is now more grateful of what he has than ever before.
