When Your Kids are In Danger From Other Kids!
Submitted By Anonymous
I spoke to a close friend of mine today who was beside herself because her 17 year old son who is a sweetheart, was warned that other boys were going to attack him over a girl.
My friend knew if they were telling the truth, than her son would be in danger at a weekend football game. She called the police and they said they could do nothing.
Her son did not want her to get involved. "He does not want me to show up at the game because he would be ridiculed if his mom try to save him?"
Finally, we came to the conclusion that the best thing to do is call the other mothers of the boys in question and have all of the moms of these boys go to the game together. Then, every kid would be in the same boat and perhaps the fight would be diffused.
I think we should not be afraid to call each other to warn each other if we know something the other parent doesn't know about their kids.
Of course, the first reaction is probably, "not my child" but in the end, we could be saving our kids and saving other parents from a bad experience.
We spend so much time trying to protect our kids when they are growing up and raise them to be good people, we shouldn't stop trying to protect and guide them just because they are 16, 17 or even 18 or 19.
I think they are still young at those ages and need our guidance and sometimes our help.
Maybe we should keep each other posted on our kids more now than ever.
