Landon, my son, has a young man in his class who is obviously from a lower income family. The young man is a loner, new, and from what I can tell, has an odor problem. You and I know these type of children.
Maybe the parents are really trying hard, but just not making it. I cannot say.
But, what would you do? Would you encourage your child to be their friend or just an acquaintance? From what I understand, some kids are picking on this young man, but he is saying nothing. Landon, admittedly, has played the ‘you touched the stinky kid and got what they got’ game, at least once. I am not happy about that.
So, what would you do?
