Best Piece of Advice I Received that I Wouldn’t Give Now


Prompt:

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received that you wouldn’t give to anyone else? Why don’t you think it would apply to others?

When I was about six or seven years old I use to get bullied at school because I was a pudgy kid. I never received much of any junk food, I ate pretty much organic between our garden at home and my grandparents, and I wasn’t fat — I just hadn’t grown yet. But anyways, my Mom told me one time after a bunch of boys were bullying me verbally to just kick them. It was a good piece of advice and it worked, it always worked.

But times have changed and now the parents and teachers would not say the bully’s deserved to be kicked and that I was just defending myself. Now I would get into trouble for kicking the bully’s and hurting them. It’s a sad reality for kids today. How does one deal with bully’s when telling on them doesn’t work or only gets you beat up worse. Why can’t one defend their self instead of put up with verbal or physical abuse? I really don’t know what people are thinking. Maybe I just should have stayed miserable and waited until I had to change schools? But just the same I wouldn’t give a kid the advice to kick a bully because it could land them in suspension or worse, get them accused of being a bully.

  1. Hahaha, that is one great advice! It’s exactly what my mum would say if I come home crying that a kid beat me up. She’d be “don’t I have hands too”. But point noted tho, It is a sad reality for kids these days.
