My brother (8) has always been a very quiet and shy child. Unfortunately it's the case that this kind of child is bullied and harassed by others. When I was visiting my parents, he sometimes told me with tears in his eyes how cruel the other children are to him, and sometimes itâ' almost unbelievable what goes on at this elementary school. The teacher has long since noticed this problem of course, so I asked her for help several times, but it seems like she isn't doing anything. I've also spoken to the main bully before school many times while his mother was there, but the chicken just laughed at me and went away with his shrugging mother.
Now for my confession. A few days ago, I (f/24) was visiting my parents again, and since the weather was so nice, I took my brother and one of his friends to the playground. After about an hour, the bully and another boy showed up. I don't know if he noticed me, but he started cursing my brother and his friend right away. Rarely in my life have I experienced such a negative atmosphere. It's hard to believe the kind of language he was using. Just when I was getting up from the bench to give a piece of my mind to this chicken, he picked up a rock and slammed it into my brother's head. I saw red. I ran over and grabbed the boy by his T-shirt and lifted him off the ground. He looked at me completely shocked, but then he laughed loudly and said, "I'm not afraid of girls!" I was so angry at this moment that I slapped him several times. I only left him alone when he started to cry.
I am quite shocked at my behavior. I really love my brother more than anything, but I would never have thought that I would be capable of such a thing. It goes against all my principles, and I'm really sorry. I wasn't in control of myself. I have no idea if this boy told his parents about it or not. But anyway, he's left my brother alone since then.
