A woman had a devastating encounter at the community pool in 2019, leading her to dish out some advice to “parents of mean kids” on social media.
A mother confronted two kids at a pool for fat-shaming her daughter. However, the situation backfired when one of the moms retaliated, forcing her to call out such irrational parents.
Taking to Facebook, the furious mom expressed how sick she was of people raising mean children. She went on to blame such parents for not instilling kindness in their children, choosing instead to defend their misdeeds.
The mom proceeded to recount one of such incidents which she witnessed at a community pool. She recalled her kids playing with a toy shark at the pool when two boys approached them and began dragging the sharks with them.
Her daughter quickly let go of hers, permitting the boys to play with it. The boys took the sharks and went off without expressing gratitude. To further worsen the situation, the boys began verbally attacking the little girl minutes later.
One of the boys announced that his play pal found the girl fat and ugly. The other quickly denied it, saying it was his friend who called her those mean words.
The mother, who witnessed the whole scenario, admitted that her heart dropped at that instant. She walked up to the boys and retrieved the toy sharks from them.
She reprimanded them for using mean words on someone kind enough to share her toys with them. She also demanded they apologize. Rather than comply, both boys rushed off to find their moms while she stayed behind to comfort her daughter.
Soon after, the mother of one of the boys swam over and confronted the woman for scolding her son. Her anger intensified at the woman’s words.
She tried explaining the scenario to the other mom, adding that the two boys needed to apologize. To her horror, the other mom remained adamant, insisting only one of the kids was hers and that they did nothing wrong.
Despite the furious mom’s insistence that she witnessed the whole scene, the other mom remained uncaring, raising her voice and refusing for her kid to apologize.
Amid the confrontation, the other mom chipped in that she would never speak to the woman’s child the way she talked to the boys. Her retort, “You wouldn’t ever have to because I raised my daughter better,” shut off the irrational mom once and for all.
The other woman never apologized, and neither did her son nor his friend. She simply hugged her kid and told her she loved him without remorse.
The Facebook user concluded that such acts were how parents failed their children and did a disservice to them, as well as the people they came in contact with.
The woman pointed out that the three kids involved learned valuable lessons from the incident. Her daughter learned the value of kindness and the reality that her mom would always protect her from bullies at all costs.
The two other kids learned that no matter how wrong they were, their negative behavior would never have consequences. The mom concluded her post by advising parents to raise kind children “so that the world isn’t responsible for your failures.”
One way of doing that is to desist from commenting on a child’s weight. Parents should also avoid body-shaming themselves or others in their children’s presence. Saying positive things about a child and building on their strength is a good way of encouraging body positivity.
