That's My Boy

He was hanging with some other boys, playing some random video game.

He had a good time, he told me, when he arrived home. But.

But it was very strange, he said. In reference to some of the action during the game, the other kids kept saying, "That's so Jewish." Or, "He's so Jewish."

He didn't understand the reference, but it was said in such a way that he knew it was wrong. So he told them to not say it.

And then he told them twice.

And after the third time, they stopped saying it.

I have many demerits in the "Bad Mother" column. I am grateful that I have a few very important attributes in the "Good Mother" column.

That, my friends, is my boy.

I have given up trying to understand where kids' get their references for these kind of statements. Good for your kid making them stop.

That is great--your son saying this in front of a bunch of friends. Well done!

Yes, that is a big point in your Good Mom column---you must be so proud of your little man.

What a confident young man you are raising...definitely a difficult situation, but your guy stood up for something he knew was not right!

That is a Mommy pat on the back! hugs to you!
