I just don't learn to keep bloody quiet...one of Himselfs granddaughters children is being bullied at school...poor little buggar is only ten. This was posted on Facebook...where else? And I made a big mistake...suggested she do something about it...politely.
Her sister made a sharp enough comment to that...and then the world and his wife joined in...
This is the same young woman who is always bored...but I was polite...honestly I was.
We didn't have bullying by other pupils when I was at school...some of the teachers were bullies mind you. We had a certain amount of teasing but it was gentle teasing and never did harm...so if a child of mine was being bullied by his or her peers I'd be raging and turn into one of those awful parents who spend hours in th Heads office demanding they do something now..or else.
I can't understand this wishy washy approach to everything...there are times when you honestly do need to go in all guns blazing and times when the child can sort it out for themselves...this child can't. It's gone way past that stage.
And I wrote a long blog and its buggered off somewhere...Word can't find it..or ipernity has hidden it away under the cushions on the sofa and won't let me have it back...
And I hate feckin Facebook and those eejits who are supposed to be family...if it wasn't for the links I receive from the ancient Irish sites I'd close my account...again.
My own family are plain weird...even sort-of- cousin Des is rather odd...but to have a whole crowd of them on Himselfs side is sometimes too much...
