Got Into A Fight

My boy got into a fight with another boy in his class during dismissal time yesterday.

My boy was already in his usual assigned position in the queue outside his classroom when he suddenly realized his water tumbler and lunch box weren't with him so he went back in to retrieve them from his seat.  Another boy who was previously standing behind him, took over him and refused to move even though my boy insisted and demanded his place back.  

They got into an argument and this boy, better known as one of the bullies in the class, punched my boy in his stomach twice.  My boy told me later the blow was painful but he did not shed a tear, instead he attempted throwing the boy to the ground by applying the Aikido throwing techniques he learned from his sinsei. *roll eyeballs* Not quite successful I can see as he said the boy fell onto the ground while he lost his balance and landed on top of him, bottom first! Ouch!!!  imagine my almost 40kg boy with 'fleshy bum bum' landed on this skinny boy.. Wuakakaka... Ahem.. Sorry for laughing out loud.. It just kind of tickles my funny bones..  Hahahaha... but the way he related the  incident was simply funny and hilarious.

I put on a straight face immediately after the laughter and made it clear to him that violence was not a good solution and he should have reported the incident to the teacher on duty.  He said no teacher was around when the incident happened and he merely fought out of self-defense.  Frankly speaking hor, I was 'secretly' relieved that he was capable of defending himself in such a situation and not letting himself succumbed to bullies.  On the other hand, I don't think it's right still teaching our kids to fight back using violence.  

How would you react if you're in my shoes?

If I were in your shoes, I would be happy too. The last thing I want to see is my kids get hurt or bullied. All mothers are selfish. The best thing is to get it resolved by teacher. Sometimes, the teacher may not be fair in handling this matter too. At least, Ian taught the fellow a lesson for not messing with him again.

I'm laughing out loud, too, just like you :p

I don't promote violence here, and I don't mind to put up a fight as the last resort.

Is always good when our kids learn how to protect themselves at least we know that they won't get hurt first of all.

But on the other hand, I think we must also ensure that our kid do truly understands and not to abuse what he has learned from his sensei, failing which, it might creates even more problem to them when they grow up.
