What Have We Done?

Mitchell is, in mine and Wayne's opinion, being bullied by a classmate.

Wayne and I have felt unaccepted by the parents since the day we met them. They are not approachable.

We are seeking God's direction in how to handle this problem. As adults, Wayne and I can tolerate what's being dealt to us. But Mitchell is only eight years old. And he truly just wants to be this boy's friend. However, friendship with this boy seems to have conditions attached to it; conditions that change like the wind. Mitchell feels caught in a no-win situation. So do I.

Please pray for us.

I'll be praying.

We are facing the same thing with our oldest. It is hard as a parent to know how much to get involved. I'll be praying for wisdom for you both.

Of course we'll be praying. This is so hard.........

although i am all for kids working most things out themselves, bullying is another thing all together!

i really hope the parents can help solve this problem. has the teacher helped intervene at all?

Kimmy, I will be praying for Mitchell and for you guys too as you pray and seek God's will in this situation.

Kimmy, I look forward to a chance to sit down and write you a long, long letter. I have been where you are in so many of your circumstances. I hope I can give you some encouragment! I do understand so many of these things.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart.

Love you, Amy
