The little boy that I speak so highly of had a problem today that was so upsetting that he was crying uncontrollably.
Seems that one of his classmates had started a cruel & ugly rumor on him that isn't even true! Of course he believed it for a while.
I cheered him up once more because it saddened me deeply to see him in that bad mood. He was so ticked off, angry and irate that he was literally banging his fists hard on the table in pure frustration as he wailed away!
I told him that his problem is just a cause of someone who wanted to see him in misery and that it more than likely is not nessecarily be true at all. I DID manage to get him to return to his normal happy self.
I really like this kid a lot, and after he left the room to go back upstairs to class, I cried a few tears myself. I've really became attached to him. He has cheered me up many times.
The coordinator said that he'll talk to his teacher to try to get to the root of the problem so that the boy won't have to go through this again.
We weren't supposed to be the ones that he came to with the problem, but how do you turn away a little boy who has just been embarrassed & poked fun at so badly that he thinks the bottom has been dropped out from under him, that it put him in such deep pain and sorrow like that? I wouldn't. I'm going to be there for him no matter what!
