The other day when Darrius came home from school, he was extremely cheesed off. I asked him why and the following conversation ensued…
Mommy : Why are you so angry?
Darrius : These naughty people in school always call me Chinese boy!
Mommy : Well, you ARE a Chinese boy!
Darrius : No, I am NOT! I am a Penang Boy!
Mommy : 😐 (can’t help but laughing sheepishly inside)
I sort of anticipate this to come but never thought it was so soon. We heard a lot about bullying in schools so I assumed this is part of the bullying the kids will get. Well, hopefully it won’t go on too long and Darrius will learn how to handle them skilfully next time.
