J picked out the book EllRay James is NOT a chicken.

It’s about a third grade boy named EllRay James who is being bullied by two boys in his class.

I talked to J about it. I told him he is to tell his teacher about the bullying. I instructed him to advocate for himself and tell the bully ” Stop what he was doing. To state that he did not like that behavior.” ¬†And he is to tell me about any bullying behavior. I half jokingly said I would unleash my crazy on the student and administrators. He chuckled and said he would tell me.

On Monday, a boy grabbed J and without me telling him he advocated for himself and told the little boy to stop his behavior and let go of him. The boy was put in timeout by his caregiver.

I am proud of J, he handled the situation calmly and directly. I know as a child I would have warned that kid and if he didn’t listen…I would’ve made him listen to my not so nice actions.
