You know what?
Sometimes being a parent really sucks.
Sometimes your child says something to you that breaks your heart, something that you really want to make right.
Sometimes you can’t make everything better for them, but sometimes you can.
This weekend my gorgeous, kind, caring little boy told me he was sick of being ginger because people were mean to him about the colour of his hair. He even told me that he thought he would be bullied when he got to senior school because of it and his face was so sad that I wanted to cry for him.
It’s playing on his mind at the moment because his big sister is off to senior school in September and she’s got her transition days this week and it doesn’t help that he worries about sticking up for himself as he thinks of himself as a bit of a wimp (which he’s not).
So this week, I’m on a mission to try and make things right for him.
I don’t know how yet but I have to try and right now I’m thinking of things to help him increase his confidence in himself which I think is a great first step for him.
I have no idea what else I can do to help him at the moment (any advice greatly appreciated) but I do know that I will do something because I want so much to make this into one of things things that I can put right!
