ARTICLE THE CITIZEN – “WHEN YOUR CHILD GETS “BODY SHAMED” ON THE PLAYGROUND
What can we as parents do to help teach our children how to be respectful towards others?
On Thursday this week after school, our son let us know that one of his classmates called him “Fat”!
Initially, I was livid! I had to take a few deep breaths before responding and to be totally honest I didn’t really know how to respond at first. Thinking back, as I write this, I’m not even sure that hubby and I managed to address it appropriately with our son or provide him with a suitable way in which to address similar accusations going forward.
