Bullies


I have to put off our Autism Awarness Celebration for the next couple of days. Most of my Readers know I have recently moved. 

I downgraded from a Two Bedroom to a One Bedroom to give my kids a better life. I moved out of the Hood towards the Beach a few months ago. My tween, yes he is only 12, still goes to school in our previous neighborhood. There are gangs and unsupervised hooligans. My son and his friends manage to stay away from them most of the time. My son has a great group of friends and they are wonderful kids.  

Lately there has been an uprising of Bullies. These past few months two of my sons friends were beat up for Ipods and Tennis Shoes. They are often picked on for the clothes they wear (Skinny Jeans) and the mix of friends (all races) they hang with. 

I am sad to say today afterschool my son was the victim of a Brutal Attack. He was jumped on his way home from School. We just made it home from the ER. My main concern was Brain Injury. He played Quarterback for Pop Warner for many years and has had numerous Cat Scans. 

I am thankful he is okay but I am heartbroken he was beaten so badly. Tomorrow I was suppose to spend the day Volunteering in my Autistic Sons Class to jump off Autism Awareness. Instead I will be removing my son from his old school and nursing him back to Health.

OMG, that is so horrible that 'people' do this sort of thing to others.
I'm so sorry for your son. I will pray for him, even though I'm not much of a pray er and don't know it it will help.
I hope he will recovery completely.

Jenn @ South of Sheridan said...

It saddens me that anyone would do this to a 12-year-old. I'm so sorry for everything you're going through right now, but you're son is quite a trooper. Sending lots of love!

Leiah said...

His physical wounds will more than likely completely heal but the emotional wounds - both his and yours - are the more severe of the two we all know. My prayers are with your entire family as you go through this healing process. I know I should also probably pray for the bullies but my heart is not mature enough for that.

gamommy2two said...

OMG how can people be so cruel!? I'm sooo sorry that your son had to experience that.

The Princess of Sarcasm said...

OMYGOSH Jane!! I am horrified and outraged! Please keep us informed with what happens. I hope they have some stiff penalties for this!

SupahMommy said...

BJ_Mama said...

WOW! WOrds cannot express how deeply saddened this makes me! My prayers are with you and your son!

Oka said...

I just want to scream.....
Bullying is always something I worry about for my oldest (with AS). Thankfully the schools here have responded to even the minor bully issues.

Jane, you are a very strong woman and I know you are going to make all the right choices for your family. All of you will pull through this on your strength. I'm glad your son has you to lean on. ((((JANE and son)))))

atl mom guidé said...

Evonne said...

OMG! There's not enough words to describe how pissed off I am for you and your son. I hope something is done with the kids who did this to him.

I'm sorry. Please keep us posted on how he's doing.

Yankee Wife said...

I'm so sorry your family is having to go through this. What awfully mean kids (who also grow into mean adults) there are out there. I hope he heals quickly. My prayers are with both of you. Give him a hug from me!

Kimi@SoManyKids said...

My heart goes out to you. To say I'm teary eyed would be a huge understatement. It is so sad this society that we live in. You and your sons will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hug your boys and hold them close. You are so blessed to have them and they are so blessed to have you!

MommaPebz said...

Oh Jane, I am SO sorry to read about this! Prayers for your son's quick healing - physically and emotionally, & prayers for you to remain strong & at peace during this time! *hugs*

Christine said...

I AM SO SORRY. That is just AWFUL and made me sick to my stomach. Hugs to you and your family.

Miss. Candy said...

Tracie said...

That is awful!! I will be praying for him and your whole family.

Logical Libby said...

I am so glad he's okay. If there is anything blogland can do, just say the word.

The Grasshoppa:Triplets Plus Two Momma said...

This breaks my heart to a million pieces. What a violation to your sons childhood innocence, among other things.

I am glad that he is home safe and that he has such and amazing mom to nurse him back to health.

Wish I could give you both a hug. Stay strong.

Alissa said...

This is horrible. My heart goes out to you and your family. I hate bullies. I'm hoping your son is doing better soon and that things work out much better in his new school.

Peterson Family said...

Give him lots of hugs and kisses from all of us and just know that we are here for you if you need us.

I ams sure you wanted to hunt them down and make them regret the day they were born. But the only thing we can do is raise our children to be caring, compassionate adults. That's how we will change the world!

Mama Wheaton said...

That justs breaks my heart. I..really don't even have the words to express the rage and grief that your story causes. Please take care of your son and yourself as you both heal from this.

Shana said...

Oh mY God! Are you kidding me?!?!?! What is wrong with kids these days? I am so sorry about this and I am praying for you guys.

Denise said...

Please, if you did not do so, file a police report.My boys had been victims of bullying IN SCHOOL. Oh how I wish I had documented it. I ended up pulling them out and homeschooling. I will not be stating what happened at this time as I do not want to take the focus off you and your son. Please, please document it! t.

Brandi said...

OMG! Bless his heart. What an awful, awful thing for the two of you to have to go through. My prayers are with you and your son.

Brittney said...

this literally brings tears to my eyes! I am so sorry that happened to your little boy!!!

*hugs* & prayers coming your way!!!

Jane said...

Oh Sweet Jane! I am so sorry!! I got big tears in my eyes reading this. It just isn't fair :(. I'm sad for you!

Erin said...

That is outrageous! I am so thankful that he was not more seriously hurt. What is this world coming to? I hope and pray that your family will heal physically, emotionally, and psychologically, very quickly from this horrific experience. Blessings!

Hissyfits & Halos said...

Poor sweet baby! I'm sorry you guys had to go through this. But, he WILL overcome this, and this will make him a better man, when he's older. :) I'll pray for quick healing, and a strengthened spirit, for you both.

Team Blogfia!

CountessLaurie said...

Jane, this is terrible! Sending prayers for health, emotional and physical, for both of you and your family.

I hope they catch whoever did this and prosecute them.

Ashley Bray said...

Sending him and you prayers and hugs. It saddens me to think that children are learning this hatred and cruelty so young. Praying for a speedy recovery.

Patience said...

This is just awful. It makes me sick to my stomach to think someone would want to hurt a 12 year old. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Kmama said...

Oh Jane!! i'm so very, very sorry. Whata terrible thing to have happen to anyone. Many prayers and hugs for you all as you sort this out and heal.

Tammy said...

Oh Jane, that is so terrible! I am so sorry to hear this. I just wrote a post yesterday on bullying...(of course not to this extent). I will say some prayers for peace and protection for you all. Hang in there girl! I want to send you and your son a great big hug!

adrienzgirl said...

Blogfia sent me to support your baby! We will send some prayers your way. NO ONE SHOULD EVER HURT A CHILD! That is awful. Those boys should be ashamed!

Bethany said...

Oh, Jane. You are in my thoughts today. My brother was jumped from behind his senior year, and it lacerated his spleen and bruised his kidneys. He was in the hospital the entire week of Thanksgiving.

I thought I was going to break somebody! I cannot imagine how I would react if it were my SON. I am here for you 110% - you have an entire blogging community who stands behind you. I hope you can feel the love and prayers all the way on the west coast. Hugs to all of your clan!

The Blue Zoo said...

Oh, your poor baby. If you manage to not hunt those other kids down and make their lives a living hell then you are a better person than me!

I hope your little man will be ok.

PS
Popped over as a member of the Blogfia!

Christy said...

Oh my, that is horrible! I hope your son is alright and heals better and you go kick some ass. Stupid kids. Yall are in my prayers!

CaneWife said...

Holy #@%$#!!! What a sick thing for someone to do. I am so sorry.

This is an absolute outrage.

Rachel said...

I am so very sorry. I linked over from Blaze 'n Crochet and thought at first it must be a really horrible April Fool's joke.

No joke.

I am stunned at the pictures. Stunned that parents would raise children who would do this.

I know the emotional scars of being different (I was mainstreamed as a deaf student), and I am so glad you are doing everything you can to give your children a safe and respectful place to grow up.

I am praying for your son's recovery, both physical and emotional.

Shame. Just a shame.

singedwingangel said...

OMG I would so be beating someone down.Where are the parents of these kids?? Did they get taught NOTHING>> OHHH see if ya find em I got places to hide the bodies.. Praying for a quick recovery for your son and the catching of teh bullies who did it to him..

Homesick Cajun said...

Oh honey I swear I teared up when I saw those pics! I can only imagine the anger you must be feeling! I thank God my son never went through something like this, for his sake...and mine! I'd be so damn angry I'd want to hunt them down and beat on them just like they did him! (No! It's not "right" to do that but you know what they say about a Momma bear and her cubs!!) It makes me so sad for you both! Hugs!!

Meeko Fabulous said...

That just fucking pisses me off! OMG! I can't believe it. Fucking little savages! I'm cussing I'm so pissed. I make it a point to control my language around here. I hope everything turns out ok and that you move him from that school. Please tell me that there will be consequences for the other kids. Are you pressing charges? I think you should. Ruin these little rat bastards lives for the rest of their lives. I don't care if they are just kids. That was a brutal malicious attack. Please take care of yourself and of your son. Just remember, you both need to be strong right now.

Stacey said...

OMG! I am so sorry this is happening to you and your son! My (now) 9 year old son had a problem with a bully last year but thankfully we were able to get things taken care of with the school before it got to something like this. I'm praying for you & your little man!

*LLUVIA* said...

OH MY GOD!!! I'm so sorry! This terrible! Why can't people live and let live?!

Hopefully he will recover soon!!!

Faithful Mali said...

I am so sorry! Bullying is a serious problem around schools and needs to be seriously addressed. I will pray for a speedy recovery for your son-- both physically and emotionally.

Frances said...

I will be praying for your family.

Sara said...

Blogfia from Shana. I am so saddened by what happened to your son. It brought tears to my eyes. Big hugs and lots of prayers.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

I am horrifiably sick about this. Just SICK!

Get him out of that school!

Lots of love and prayer your way and hugs!

So sorry this happened...love you.

Adrienne said...

I am so sadden by this I am praying for you and I am praying that those bully kids change their ways ...This world is evil enough without these things I am here from the blogfia and I would be happy to jack slap a bully for you if I could. I hope your son recovers quickly and he is OK after all of this =(

Noelle said...

I'm in tears here on my end of the internet. I'm soooo sorry you all have to go through that! Please give your son and yourself a big hug from me!

Rebecca said...

OH MY LORD!!!! There are no words really, I am just furious for you! Adding you all to my prayer list.. praying for God to keep your boy strong and not allow him to be filled with whatever hateful rage would cause others to do this to him.

Hang in there, mama, you are doing so great with this!

Andrea (ace1028) said...

I am SO sorry that this happened to your family. Sending you mega-hugs across the wires. Princess of Sarcasm sent me over and I want you to know how much I hate that you're dealing w/ this. Much love!

Sally said...

My friend sent your blog post to me and I am heartbroken for you. Kids do not deserve this and these bullies all around the country should not be allowed to get away with this. I hope that he is strong enough to prosecute them, but as he has you for a mom, I am sure he is a strong kid.

Shell said...

Your poor baby! Words fail me here- I'm so upset for you.

Erin said...

I am so, so very sorry. I was bullied as a kid, but not to this extent. I am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. I hope this will pass.

I came over from Princess of Sarcasm's blog---she gave you a shout out and I wanted to come over and see what was going on. Please keep us posted.

Aunt Juicebox said...

Holy crap Jane! This is so terrible! I don't even know what to say. I wish I could make it better for you. Your son did not deserve to go through this. I hope the ones who did it have been arrested.

purseblogger said...

I am so sorry. This angers and hurts me beyond words. You are in our prayers. Please keep us posted. Good luck and lots of hugs to you and your son.

iheartbowheads.blogspot.com said...

POOR baby! I am so so so so sorry! I will lift you both up in my prayers today. GRRRRRRR that is all I have to say grrrr

Much love!

Christine Jensen said...

Oh my heck! Your poor little guy. It is so sad that kids can be so mean to each other. Hugs to you and your children.

Tortuga said...

Oh dear Lord, your poor baby. I have had to deal with bullies but never this bad. You and your family are in my prayers.

God,

Please help this family as they struggle to make a better life for themselves. Help them to know they are still loved. Comfort them in this time of suffering and guide them down a healing path.

Emmy said...

I am so so sorry. I hate that people can be that mean and horrible. So glad you are going to be able to get him into a different school and hope that things are much better and safer for all of you.

Rebecca said...

Ohh hun, this just makes me cry and hurts so much. I'm so sorry that your son was hurt by terrible people. Lots of prayers for your little man. Just remind him that just because he was a target he did NOT deserve to be hurt, ever. He needs to continue on being a good little guy so he can grow up to be a good man who will hopefully find a way to help other kids in need.

((hugs))

Nic said...

This breaks my hurt. I will say a prayer for you family.

Tami G said...

Stopping by from Meeko's....
this is just absolutely HORRIBLE. I am so sorry for what you are going through and hopefully - good things will come from this. God works in mysterious ways and maybe your son has a bigger calling at his new school :)

Lots of {{HUGS}} and {{PRAYERS}} coming your way!

Terry said...

Awww Jane...that's horrible! I can only imagine how you feel!! Things like this should NOT happen...he's 12 for pete's sake!! Geezus! Makes me sick...and very afraid because it makes me so aware that I won't always have my children in my sight....
Give that boy a hug...or 2...or 3!!
xoxo

Margaret said...

What in the hell is wrong with kids these days. I am so sorry that it happened to him. I wish it hadn't happened.

Your in my thoughts and prayers!

Serendipity is Sweet said...

So sorry to hear of this. How awful. I hope he is feeling much better soon. Good for you for getting him out of there. Praying for your family.

Lisa said...

Jane I am so sorry this has happened to your son. I can only imagine how mad and upset you are right now. Our world is so full of evil people right now and I HATE that it has invaded your life. BIG HUGS to both of you.

Jo said...

Hi, beautiful lady. I have two apologies to make to you:

1) I'm so sorry it's been so long since I've been by to see you.

2) My heart positively hurts for you and your beautiful son and I'm just sick and so horribly sorry this happened to him.

You and your family are in my thoughts in the hopes that you and your son will remain the strong people you are.

Please keep us updated -- we'd love to know how he is doing and if the culrpits received due punishment from the police and/or school.

With sincere thoughts from a sincere place,
~Jo

Thats a shame..Girl..I dont know what to say..what is the world comming to? I'm Speechless...

La Mere Joie said...

That's really horrible. There is just too much hate in the world. You and your family are in my prayers.

Mommy Lisa said...

What is going on? Why are people so callous these days in their disregard for anything?

They don't care about themselves.
They don't care about others.
They don't care about anything but feeling "important" or "powerful".

It is just one sad story about children all day today and I am about to lose it!

Much love and hugs to all in your home and the families of your son's friends too.

Ginger@cottageonrosewood said...

Unbelievable. Meeko sent me your way. I am so sorry this happened to your child. I have a feeling the mamma bear in me would have to attack. Not that it would make it any better, but this is ridiculous. I'm glad to hear you have moved to a better place, but seriously I feel sorry for the kids who are left to attend school and live where things like this happen. It is a very sad world we live in. These kids need a role model!

Mrs Mom said...

Came via GunDiva. Prayers for your son from our little corner of the world, and for the safety of his friends as well.

Mrs Mom said...

My husband was reading over my shoulder, and was just aghasted as well.

He works in a personal protection industry. Many of his clients are self defense instructors, and he suggested seeing if you could locate a dojo in your area. It will not only help him learn some defensive moves, but will help to ease the anguish from this incident. Of the instructors he knows, not one of them would turn your son away- money would not be a concern- the safety and well being of your son would.

Prayers from all of us out here.

Being Me said...

Oh my goodness me, I am very sorry your son was so brutally jumped on. That goes beyond bullying in my books.

What is going on in this world?

Lolidots said...

So sad for your son and for you. I hope your son can rise above this ignorant hate and realize that he didn't deserve it and he's so much better than those bullies. I also hope you are pressing charges.

Hugs and positive thoughts your way!

Brian Miller said...

so sorry. i am glad he is okay. it must have been terrifying for you...and him.
i hope that justice finds them...

Kel said...

I am so sorry! I just got goose bumps and sick to my stomach. It is so sad that our youth is declining so quickly. Where are the role models? Where is the discipline? I hope you believe in the power of prayer because I will be sending some your way. Stay strong and much love to you and your son!

Glamazon said...

Oh my gosh! I am so so so sorry. That is awful! My prayers are with you and your family.

Eva Gallant said...

I am so sorry this happened to your beautiful son! There are some real sickos out there and obviously he has encountered some. I hope you all recover from this physically and emotionally. Sending you love from the state of Maine!

Shannon said...

I will pray for you and your son..that he will heal quickly...I am so sorry for what you are going through...hope that the ones responsible will be brought to justice quickly...poor boy..I will pray that your sons spirit will heal completely as well!

Heather said...

I hate how mean kids can be and I am so sorry your son got jumped like that. Big hugs to you and your son.

Messy said...

omg, how can kids do this to each other, it's getting ridiculous. Who are raising these kids now a days, they're nasty, and it's uncalled for. So sorry your son's and you/your family have to go thru this. And this is why ppl move and it's wrong. I hope he feels better soon.

william said...

that was VERY sad, animals, infact thats an insult to animals because they do not behave like this, I cannot believe the hatred and fighting goes on, and for what? hope ur son does get over this and get him out of that school :)

Brittany Ciara said...

I am so sorry to hear about this. School is supposed to be safe place for kids, and it truly isn't. I wish you the best of luck, Jane, with the process of healing your poor son and finding justice. Those scars on his face must be 10 times worse on his heart. God bless and may your son recover quickly.

Poolside with the Girls said...

I'm so sorry that this happened to your son. I'm glad you are pulling him out of that school. You're a great mom. No child should have to go through this. My prayers are with you and your son.

Danielle said...

OMG JANE. I am so sorry your innocent child had to experience something so trumatic.

Praying for you all. Stay strong.

What an awful thing to happen! I am praying for a fast recovery both physically and emotionally, I cant imagine how scared, hurt, and upset you both must be feeling ::hugs::

That is horrible and sickening. I cannot believe kids these days!!! I am so sorry your son had to go through that.

Terra said...

Oh crap, I am sorry - this really is just plain wrong on so many levels. You hang in there and hold that son as tight as you can. Many out here just loving on your family tonight.

My Mercurial Nature said...

Coming from a Blogfia post...and I am SO so sorry...for you and for your son. You're teaching him all the important things in life and he will certainly make it through this horrible ordeal with your support and love. I hope you've filed a police report and ...well... stupid internet (((HUGS))) for the stress you must be feeling!!

Lin said...

I'm so sorry that you're son is a victim of this type of crap. Kids getting picked on needs to stop asap. I hope your son recovers quickly, physically & emotionally.

knitwit said...

I just found you through another blog I read. I'm so sorry you and your son had to experience something so terrible and I hope it's the last time. I'm also sad that something like this had to interfere with the important work you're doing raising awareness for autism.
Sending you all my positive energy!

Caron said...

Unbelievable...
Where are the humanitarian hearts in these abusive kids.

The eyes of the Lord are in every place watching the evil and the good. Proverbs

Let your boy know that God can turn even horrible things into something for His good.

My prayers are for your boys safety and healing in all ways.

Katrina said...

That is so terrible! I am so sorry... I wish the police would do something about bullys like that.

Chief said...

Jane, I am aching for you

I will email you right now

Amanda said...

OMGosh ~ my eyes are welling up with tears and my heart is seriously HURTING. Why are children so mean? I just wrote a post recently about this with my son. He came to my car one day holding his shoes because some kids told him he was a loser and threw his shoes in a puddle.

My heart was shattered.

Lots and love and prayers coming your way.

Mad Woman said...

Oh Jane, how awful! It's such a horrible thing to go through for anyone..he must have been so scared. Is there any punishment for the ones who beat him up? Were they trying to get something from him?

Big hugs to you and to him. This is my first time to your blog, I was sent by the Blogfia (which I'm now a part of)....HUGE love going out to you. I'll be back.

Unknown Mami said...

I am so unbelievably sorry. As someone who had been of victim of violent crime and witnessed my future husband being brutally attacked this really gets to the core of me. It pains me that your beautiful son had to experience such brutality ever. It breaks my heart to think of the suffering and pain that you must be feeling. I am truly, truly sorry. You are in my thoughts. I am sending you love.

I am glad that he is recovering and that he has you.

I am spewing curse words like you would not believe because this shit pains me, but it also pisses me off. I'm so over it.

Kat said...

I found your post and cannot believe this happened to you...I'm so sorry that your son had to go through something like that! I don't understand what this world is coming to...I am now your new follower as I definitely want to keep reading...keep us posted and I pray that you will have the strength to handle this.

I am so so so sorry for your son.
I hope his pain will calm down.

Miss Nessa said...

Sigh, I am sorry. I can't really understand a lot of what happens in the world. I hope he heals fast and can someday soon find some peace.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I'm just so sorry that this happened to your son.

Mrsblogalot said...

I am outraged and so sorry for you and your son. This is happening everywhere and it really needs more attention and must be stopped. When our children can't be safe in their own schools where can they be?

I'm over from LLUVIA's blog and I am so glad that she sent us over to give you a hug. My hugs and thoughts are with you. xoxoxoM

Krystyn said...

That is so terrible and horrible. I'm so sorry you are going through this right now. I hope he recovers quickly.

faerwillow said...

~oh jane...seeing this and reading this makes my heart break...i am so so sorry this has happened to your child...innocent...pure...no one ever deserves hands to touch them that way...blessed and thankful you are that he is alright...i have never understood the whys...what lies within such an individual that makes them feel more powerful and justifies it in their mind that is is ok to do such to another...i know my words can not take away the pain for you and your son...but know my heart is with you both...always...l♥ve and blessings upon you and your family always~

Aunt Crazy said...

here from GunDiva's place...this is horrible and I'm so sorry for your son. I hope to hell those kids are charged with a crime.

Cassie said...

I'm over from the Princess of Sarcasm. So sorry to hear that happened to your son. My stepsons were once really badly beaten and we spent the next few days doing the same, switching schools and nursing them back to health. Sending my best wishes for his return to good health.

MommyLovesStilettos said...

OMG. That is so scary! :( WTF is wrong with kids these days? I just don't know where parents are going wrong but that is just insane.

I am so sorry to hear about this. I hope he's ok. Poor kiddo :( *HUGS*

Charlene Canfield said...

Oh my goodness. I am so sorry. I really do not understand people these days. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Michelle Pixie said...

Omigosh! I am so sorry for all of you and I hope there are some severe consequences to these monsters that hurt your baby. {{{HUGS}}}

Aphrodite's Mortal Friend (ME) said...

I can not even begin to imagine how you must feel right now- I am so sorry and so f'ing pissed off to read that- it is awful!! Take care of your family-Wearing blue today ;-)

Helene said...

Oh wow, I'm so sorry this has happened to him. As a mother, my heart hurts seeing those pictures of him with his injuries. I'm stunned at how cruel some kids can be towards others...all because they're jealous that they don't have the same material items.

I hope the kids who did this to your son are punished somehow. They need to know that this type of behavior is not acceptable.

blueviolet said...

I just feel so sick to my stomach over this! I'm so incredibly sorry and I'm glad the punk was arrested!

Gen said...

OMG Jane! i'm here cause the blogfia sent me. ;) i am SO sorry this happened to your son! i have to say, you are a much better woman than i am...b/c i'd have headed from the er to the home of the child that did this....police in tow. oh my gosh. give your boy sweet gentle hugs from us all!

Lindsay said...

Coming over from The Winey Mommy.. this breaks my heart! Your poor son.. I pray for a quick recovery and that this doesn't hurt his spirit. Bullying is just terrible and I wish there was a quick solution.. but awareness that its out there and it needs to be stopped will def help! (((HUGS)))

CRAZYMOM said...

This makes me sick. Thank God he has you for a mother to support him and deal with the situation. You are a great mom!

Xmas Dolly said...

Oh Lord, your poor baby! I know he's twelve, but he's probably going on 30, right? So, you moved away from this terrible place right? Lord, I hope so. To tell you the truth I will prayer for your son, but I will also pray for the ones that did that to him that they will mend the errors of their ways. They will have to answer for what they have done one day & I hope your son knows that as I'm sure he does. If there is a way to take him out of that school DO IT! You can't take this chance anymore. Where is the police, what are they doing about it? {{HUGS}} FOR YOUR SON. I'M following you now, so I'll be back to see how he's doing & you. I shall pray for you as well. Keep your chin up Mom! HAPPY EASTER. A mutual friend, Lluvia told me of your woe & I came to give my support too.

I heard about your sons ordeal from Atlanta Mom. I so hope the new school is better. I am so sorry to hear about that. So very petrifying. Your son is lucky to have you as a Mom.

gayle said...

So sorry this has happened!! I don't understand why people do this!! Thinking and praying for you all!!

this is so terrible. as a mother (and simply as a human being) my heart goes out to you and your son. i pray that he recovers quickly from his injuries.

Kat said...

OMG Jane! This is horrible!! I am so sorry that someone did this to your son. He is in my thoughts and prayers!

Alyssa said...

Jane, there is absolutely nothing that can be said to make this comprehensible.

My wishes, thoughts, and prayers are with you.

Heather said...

OMG, I'm in tears for you and your son right now! And to think, I got upset when someone told my daughter her hair and her clothes were ugly and her toys were all junk! No child should have to be bullied, no matter how minor or severe!

Kelly said...

This is horrible and should never be tolerated. I pray your son heals (both physically and emotionally) quickly and is able to resume his life without fear.

Krista said...

I am just now seeing this and I am completely horrified!! I hope that you will follow this up with your local authorities because these boys clearly need some sort of intervention. I hope that your son is doing well and that he doesn't let this terrible incident affect his bright future!!

June Freaking Cleaver said...

I was just wondering how your son is doing now...my son got hit with a big stick by a six-year old girl on two different occasions. His autism makes him a target of bullying in our neighborhood. Even though he's almost 15, he can no longer leave our yard.

It's sad, and it sucks.

Corrie Howe said...

Jane, I'm sorry to hear something like this could happen to anyone, but especially your children. There are really no good words to express, but I send you my well wishes and pray that moving him to a different school will solve the immediate danger.

Garnish said...

I will NEVER understand why bullies feel such freedom to inflict such pain. My thoughts are with you all. May you all rise from this stronger than ever.

carma said...

this is absolutely horrible. I hope that he is doing better. My son has been bullied a bit the past few years (thankfully it appears to have stopped) - such a senseless, cowardly act - I bet you felt like going out there and kicking their a$$es yourself

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

That is awful! Poor thing, poor momma! Those children are doing this now, just think what they'll be doing when they get older. I'm so glad you were able to move away from the area & appaud you for pulling him out of school. Hugs!

Steph said...

It breaks my heart to see such a handsome young man injured so badly. Thank goodness it wasn't worse, but this sort of thing should never happen to our babies. Sending you lots of hugs.

Heather said...

I just found your blog from Princess of Sarcasm's post. I am so sorry to hear about your son (who is gorgeous by the way, bruised face or not). I was a teacher in a former life and we had to constantly deal with bullying. Thank you for bringing the issue to light. I hope parents of bullies read this and have family discussions that are a long time in coming.

I hope that the transition to the new school goes smoothly.

ManicMandy said...

I am so sorry for what your son has gone through! I cant believe that kids act this way and their parents allow it! I have two boys of my own and I pray for your family and mine that this NEVER happens again!! I will keep you in my prayers!

Loco YaYa said...

OMG Jane. ok. i know i am late. i just now sat down to read my blogs. and OMG!! are you serious?? when i read this post i cried. at work. tears.

people are so stupid. i absolutely love you. you are an amazing wonderful woman and to think that you/him/the family has to go through/put up with this is ridiculous. it makes this crazy Texan's blood boil!

you hug him extra tight and let him know that Loco YaYa sends him tons of love and healing. both physically and emotionally.

and tons of love and healing to you too!

Susan S. said...

I am so sorry that happened to your family! I cannot imagine the anger and fear you must be feeling. Before seeing your post, I was really upset about a bully pushing my son down in the locker room and calling him fat.

What is wrong with some children?
I pray that he continues to heal and this attack won't change his life for the worse.

Deb(bie Debbie Doo) said...

Just awful - so glad you are able to pull him out of that environment and begin the healing process!

Mrs4444 said...

That is incredible. I am so sorry your son had to experience that trauma. Don't you wish you could kill those punks?! Heck, I wish I could kick their a$$es!!
