I know it isn’t proper and we shouldn’t do it and some people hate it when we do it. The Bible even says we shouldn’t do it. But some of you parents out there know that there comes a time when the urge to do it is just overwhelming and we have to do it before we burst. Of course I am talking about bragging, and not just any bragging; “Child bragging.” For the sake of the non parents, I will make it brief (even though I don’t want to).
Yesterday at school, my youngest son (Sean) was on the playground when another student toppled over. From the sound of it, he was having some kind of seizure. One teacher ran to his aid but none of the students offered to help. (None except Sean that is) I have to say that this is middle school and the children do need to maintain that “cool image” but where is the compassion for another human being?
Anywhoo, Sean ran over and helped the teacher with the other student. Sean is only 12 but he is a large boy, (standing over 6’ tall) so he was able to physically help the teacher out. The teacher asked him to stay with the boy while she ran for help. From what he told us, none of the other students offered to help while the teacher was gone.
Soon help arrived and they were able to assist the student. After the incident, the teacher was talking with Sean and told him; “God made people like you big so he could fit in a really big heart. “ Sean really is a great person. He is dying for someone to check out his blog too if anyone has some spare time. It is called Sean’s art.
In other news, (and you thought I was done bragging) my older son was nominated yesterday for “Student of the week” at his High School. This is his senior year and it looks like he is going to finish in a blaze of glory. Whoo Hooo, double bonus! Ok I’m done bragging.
Have a great day, I am!
