Children deal with a lot of potential issues each and every day, and bullying is certainly one of the big ones. According to an official website of the US government, “Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.”
A mom took to Reddit and shared a story on how her 9-year-old daughter secured a ‘petty revenge’ against her bully.
‘My 9 year old’s petty revenge’
“Today I got a call from the school my 9 year old attends asking to please come up to the school because my daughter was in trouble for vandalising another child’s property,” mom starts off with the post on Reddit.
“This surprised me because my daughter is a bit of a goody two shoes and never gets in trouble so I dropped what I was doing and swung by the school to find my daughter sitting in the Principal’s office grinning ear to ear. I was ushered in to take a seat,” she continued.
“The Principal immediately launched into a tirade about how my daughter had deliberately broken another girl’s necklace and how unacceptable it was. Once he was finished, I turned to my daughter to hear her side of the story,” the mom said.
“Last year my daughter saved up her pocket money to buy best friend necklaces for her and this girl. I ordered them from Wish.com for her. This year the friendship went belly up when I discovered this girl was trying to extort her friends including my daughter into buying her expensive items on a kids game with threats, backstabbing my daughter and threatening anyone who dared play with her at lunch so she was completely isolated.”
At the end of the day, the most important thing to note from this is to stand up for your kids/yourself.
