Most of us are taught when we’re kids that violence does not solve problems. Most of the time, this is true. This mom, however, says that sometimes, under certain circumstances, it might be warranted. Her son got in trouble when he punched his bully at school. She took to Instagram to explain why she was proud, and not mad, at the little guy. (1)
Mom Proud That Her Son Punched His Bully
Laura Mazza describes her six-year-old son as “sweet by nature,” who she has never known to hit or bully anyone randomly. She says she knows her children aren’t angels, but this was really out of character for her son. (1)
“In the 6 years I’ve known him, I’ve never ever witnessed him punch someone unprovoked,” she explained. “If you told me it was my daughter, well, that’s a different story.” (1)
When he punched his bully at school and got in trouble for it, she wanted to know what really happened.
The True Story and a Punched Bully
At first, her son was nervous to admit to her why he punched his bully. After already getting in trouble at school, he didn’t want to be in trouble at home, too. Mazza reassured him, and told him that if he told her the truth, he wouldn’t be punished.
“He told me that another boy was picking on him, and when he told him to stop, he pushed him off the playground, then ran away.” she wrote. (1)
Having dealt with bullies before, her son knew that the teachers wouldn’t do anything about it. So he decided to put an end to the bullying once and for all. He chased after the boy and punched him square in the face.
“I chased him and punched him in the face, so he knows never to bully me again. I knew the teacher wouldn’t do anything, so I had to stop him from bullying me.” Mazza quoted her son saying. (1)
She thanked him for being honest, then the pair chatted about what he can do in the future without having to resort to violence.
