I had a high school friend after 25 years we reunited. We ran into each others sons private school. We became really good friends, and so close that we were like sisters. Our families traveled together, camp together, when our husbands would go for long hiking trips. Her and their two sons would stay a night with two out of three children, man did we all have a good time whether we were out and about or at each others home. We were thicker than thieves and partner in crime. Now that I told you the good stuff, let me tell you the not good stuff. Well once upon a time I had a high school I reunited with after 25 years and she had two sons. The oldest son looked innocent, good, an angel, and couldn't do anything wrong in the parents eyes. He fooled us all. The parents spoiled him beyond repair. That will the next blog why parents should not spoil their children beyond repair. He got a lot attention and every material thing he wanted. One day they at our home, the boys were in my some room playing video games that my Bullying son only play when boy came over. Well he was going through my sons drawers why I don't know. The boy stolen my sons $5 bill. Before the boy and my left my son put the video game back in his drawer, he looked and didn't see it and said mom it was just here. I said take everything out your drawer and look for it, my son said no it not here. My son turned to the boy and I saw in my drawer what were you doing in them, the boy said nothing. I asked the boy to check his pockets, he didn't want to, but he checked and guess what the $5 bill magically appeared, the boy mother can to the room and ask her son what was taking him so long. More of us mentioned the $5 bill. This was elementary school, now in high school the boy was so spoiled and overly bratty no one liked him no matter how much he tried fitting in, but because all three my children were very popular, good, and well behaved everyone loved them from their friends, teachers, and administration. He was mad at my son because he had a lot of friends and the boy did not. The boy he was so jealous he started bullying my son, talking, lying on my son, telling everyone that he could kick my son’s but because he took karate, my son was afraid of him, and was trying to take my son’s friends away for himself, but my son’s friends were not stupid and didn't go for the boys tricks. Whenever we bought our son something especially if it was for basebase he had to have one too. The boy tell his parents what he want and they ran out to buy it instead of saying no occasionally. The boy didn't know what no meant. He had a habits lying and it didn't matter to him when he got caught every time from classmates, teammates, teachers, or parents because he kept lying everything that can out of his mouth parents were in denial. Anything good happen to my soon the boy would go home and had a fit, why always him and not me. That bad thing is I told my son to stay away from the boy because I didn't want to break up our friendship but like my southern mom would say. Enough is enough and too much stank, lol so I finally didn't care about our years of friendship any longer it was all about my son. I went around the corner to their home and told my friend that her son has been bullying my son, for a long time needless to say it was over, the friendship was over all. She didn't want to believe her son was a bully. Sorry to leave out her youngest so, he was perfect! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Is a true story.
