Playground bullies and other good stuff

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:35 am by relief1

My daugther finally duked it out after battling a playground/school/masjid bully for over a year! Surprise surprise she finally stood up for her self after years of taking the name calling, hitting, tauting, ridiculing etc. from this girl who goes to her school and to top it off the masjid.

She threatened to kick both my 10 year old and the 6 year old daughter and my 10 year old fought back so this is her first fight outside of battling it out with her siblings. While I would have preferred she didn’t do it on the masjid playground I see it as a milestone for her and perhaps she won’t have to endure a lifetime of bullying as she is no longer terrified of these girls and realizes that she does not have to just sit back and take it.  I told her that the next time this girl shows up at the masjid to let me know so that I can meet the girl and try to talk to the girl’s mother. I can’t imagine the mother knows what a terror of a daughter she is raising.  My daughter is not the first girl she has fought at the masjid and Allah willing she won’t be the last.

    as salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah, yikes! a little muslimah bully. alhamdulillah, we haven’t encountered any. my kids don’t do well with over-indulged prissy-pants girls, especially my oldest. insha’Allah I hope the girl’s mom doesn’t take her child’s side, you might be pulling out the vasoline yourself.

    Walaykum as’salam wa rahmatullah,

    Umm Binat,
    Thanks for dropping by, you are right about I might have problems with the mom as my daughter tells me the girl goes around bragging about being a princess and that her parents give her whatever she wants and she’s an only child. They will no doubt be shocked what their daughter gets up to. The imam actually had to pull her off another child in the masjid during Qur’an class as she was trying to beat her up in front of the iman!
