A Texas mom says she wanted to make it clear to her young son that he was turning into a bully and that was not okay with her.
“He was calling other boys ‘stupid’, calling them ‘idiots,'” said Star, who wanted to be referred to by her first name.
When Star learned what her son was doing, she had him wear a t-shirt that read “I am a bully” to school on Friday.
“I’m a very old-school parent,” said Star. “I don’t coddle my children. I don’t sugar coat the world to them.”
She even posted the pictures on Facebook, but she told ABC13 she did not do that to embarrass her Greenleaf Elementary fifth grader.
“I posted it to reach out to the parents of any of the kids my son may have bullied so that each one of them could get a personal apology,” said Star.
Negative comments forced her to remove the post but she stands by her decision.
“I wanted to know what he learned from it and he said, ‘I learned that I didn’t like the way that that felt and I don’t want anybody else to feel that way because of me,'” Star said. “That’s exactly what I wanted him to take from it.”
