Good morning & I #LOVE YOU. I hail from a long line of conquerors; a long line of big, foreboding people. My dad towers at 6' 6", my grandpa was 6'8", my uncles measured 6'9", & my 93 year old grandma still graces 6'! However, my mother capped out at barely 5' w/ American Indian descent.
I share this because much about the perspective for living that I had adopoted, was synonymous with my physicality. Meaning: "I'm big, I am strong, I run over shit." That's how I was raised & therefore, that's how I taught.
My son is THE most compassionate Soul I have ever experienced. When he was just 4, he was in a pre preschool program. He came home on the first day of school & a child had pushed him to the ground. The kid had come right over to him during recess, & pushed him in his chest & pushed him to the ground. I asked my son what he did & he said, "I got up". I really wasn't sure what to do about this.
On the second day of #school, he came home & he had again, been pushed to the ground. I said, "This is ridiculous! You need to get up & push that boy back!" My twin girls were then juniors in #HighSchool. They were seated behind him & they were shaking their heads from left to right, vehemently. "What?!?", I barked at them. "Mom, he's in #preschool. He needs to tell the #teacher", one of them replied. "I think your sisters are right", I said to him. If this happens again, you need to go straight to the teacher & tell her". My #son came home from his third day of school & again, the boy had pushed him to the ground. I was livid. "What the heck are you talking about? What do you do when you're on the ground? You just sit there?", I asked, soooooo concerned about my son being punked on the #playground. My son looked off into space, his eyes losing their focus. "I helped the boy up. When the other boy pushed me, I fell into another boy. My head hit his head and he was crying. I was not. I helped him up." I sat stunned in silence.
