Little Boy Sings To Bullied Girl At School
Moving to a new town can be an exciting adventure for kids. Getting to experience new people and places is part of what makes growing up and exploring the world so much fun.
However, it can also be difficult.
Making friends isn’t always easy, especially when kids already have their little groups all figured out. When someone new comes to town, kids can be incredibly cruel.
When one family made a move to El Paso, Texas, their little girl ran into some trouble making new friends at her new school.
While she was sweet and friendly with everyone, she didn’t get the reaction that she’d hoped for.
Instead of receiving a warm southern welcome from her new Texan classmates, this little girl found herself on the tail end of some bullying.
A lot of folks dismiss bullying as a normal childhood behavior or something that gives kids a tougher skin and the ability to handle their emotions.
However, bullying is a lot more destructive than it seems. It can deeply damage a person’s mental state and sense of self-worth. In fact, 20% of high school students say they have seriously considered suicide within the last 12 months.
Adults and teachers need to take note and check in with kids to make sure that they’re doing alright with their classmates. 60% of middle school students say that they have been bullied, while only 16% of staff believes that students are bullied.
This little girl is lucky, though, to have one amazing friend who will be there for her no matter what.
In a grand gesture to make her feel better, this boy decided to sing his new friend a song.
