Today, MC handled a bully.
It seemed that she's been bullied by a certain girl for a long, long time now.
But it was only today that she told us about it.
Casually she said, 'you know what mama, a certain classmate always tell me that I am dumb. That I am stupid. And that is why I am not going in the same high school as she next year, because I am stupid.'
I asked her what her response was. She said nothing. She simply ignores the girl despite the fact that girl comes up to her saying the same words over and over again; almost everyday.
I praised her for just ignoring the girl. MC said she knows she is not stupid. That is why she just ignores the girl.
But apparently, MC decided to tell us today about being bullied because she had had enough.
She confronted the girl who calls her stupid and told her, 'you know what, if you continue being like that, you would loose all your friends. In fact, I know that someone just pretends she likes you because she wants to avoid all your tears, all your dramas.'
Well, that seemed to shock the girl. She stopped teasing and making fun of MC.
I applaud MC for effectively dealing with a bully; for effectively dealing with a bully in a diplomatic way. You go my girl!
P.S. Here's another MC's diplomacy.
