Bullies are your kid’s number one enemies. They are the instigator of many problems of overweight kids. There are a lot of bullies everywhere, in school, classroom, playground, and sometimes your neighbor’s kids. So what can you do if your kids are bullied in school?
The first thing you should do is to let your kid handle it by themselves, at first. After all, they can always ignore the comments and insults, or they can just simply walk away. Sometimes these things are for the best, the more they take noticed of the people who are bullying them, the more these bullies attack them.
But there are also a periods when you have to act and step in. These are the times when your kid is already hurting or the situation is beyond your kid’s control. Being bullied is not normal, just because you kid is overweight. The following can help you handle your kid situations.
1.Talk to the teacher. As a mother you have the right to protect your kid from anything and anyone. You can ask the teacher to step in especially, if the bullies are your kid’s classmates or schoolmates.
2.Talk to the principal – If by any chance the teacher is unwilling or unable to assist in your kids problems, ask the principal instead. After all your kid has the right to go to school without the feeling of being threatened or bullied.
3.The support of the parents is very essential in this important time of their kid’s life. Most particularly, if they are trying to lose weight. Giving them support inside the home and encouraging them to continue their program, can ease the negative effects of being bulled when they’re not at home.
4.Bullies by nature are weak and insecure; they tend to pick people whom they knew will not fight them. Reminding these things to your kid is important so they will not feel pathetic.
5.Persuade your kid to always stay with their friends or groups. That why, bullies won’t have the chance to pick on your kid.
6.Teaching your kid to have more self confidence even if they are overweight, can greatly help them, and protect themselves from those bullies. As we all know, bullies always pick someone who they think are weak and easily scared.
The best and most important facts you can advice your kid, is to never get involved in any fight or arguments. The last thing your kid needs is to be involved in any kind of situation, where they can easily be considered as the instigator.
Remember that your kid and you as the parents have the right to complain those bullies to the head principal. Your kid has all the rights as those bullies to be at school with no one insulting and threatening them, just because they are overweight. If all else fails, you can always ask the parent of those bullies to intervene and reprimand their kids. I hope all this information can help protect your kid.

My Little Blackbird Kid(1)

This might be the last image of my little blackbird kids.
They all 3 are well and almost ready to leave.
It has been such a great joy for me to follow them. They have been so cute – confident – and they have touched my heart.
It will be a little sad when they leave the nest and us – but we gotta remember that: "Freedom is the greatest thing of all."
I wish all the best for them on their further way – my thoughts and a piece of my heart will fly with them.
Perhaps we are so lucky that the blackbird parents will give us a litter more this season. – Johanne
