My youngest will be attending her two-day recollection tomorrow and day after tomorrow. Unfortunately, a week ago, she had a fight with her best friend which made us unhappy. As a mother, I really don’t want any of my family members to be involved in any kind of fight be it verbal or physical. It is very upsetting for me. Although this youngest of mine is so young, (she’s eleven years old and in grade six), this fight she’s involved to is a petty fight yet it bothers me and her dad too. Even her grandparents are bothered. This is her first time to be in this kind of situation. She’s basically a friendly child as far as we know. Ever since she was a little kid, she hasn’t been in any awkward fight or conflict with her playmates. In fact, we’re very proud of her (just like her elder sisters where there had been no records whatsoever fight it is with their friends and playmates) hence this surprised all of her family.
In any case, we are trying to settle this dispute between her and her best friend as to make amends. School authorities too have helped us settle their indifferences. What I am proud of of this child of mine is that she is very much willing to apologize. In fact, she was the one who was apologetic and the first to say ‘sorry’ when efforts were made settling them. But her best friend won’t accept however their class adviser persuaded. School authorities too have acted as mediators but to no avail (yet). My husband and I don’t understand why her best friend seems to be hard-headed this time so we were forced to talk to their classmates who witnessed the incident wherein which most of their class mates who witnessed the ‘fight’ told us that her best friend has initiated the ‘fight’ which therefore causes my child’s reaction to react and fight back.
That’s the story which as of this writing broke my heart, my husband’s and her grandparents. Result remains to be seen during and after their scheduled recollection. We are hopeful and trustful that this activity will be able to bridged their relation and patch it up.
