5 Boys Vow To Protect Special Needs Kid From Bullies
Across playgrounds everywhere, kids are making friends and enjoying their time at school. But for kids with special needs, it might not be so simple. Bullying is already a problem among school aged kids. When a disability makes a kid stand out, they can become an easier target for bullies.
After a group of 5th grade boys noticed a classmate with a learning disability getting bullied, they banded together to protect him. These 5 incredible young gentlemen have made it their duty to make James feel safe, accepted and happy.
"Why pick on someone who has special needs? There are like using him and taking advantage of him because he is easier to pick on and it's just not right," one of the boys said. They have taken James in as part of their gang. They play at recess together and even outside of school. These boys are a shining example of how kids everywhere should be acting!
