Bullying can cause deep emotional scars on a child’s heart which can psychologically impact them for life.
This young boy, Isaiah, is like so many children being bullied. According to his father’s post on Instagram, his son is a victim of bullying and doesn’t have any friends in school. The kids were teasing him because of the color of his skin.
But Isaiah is lucky to have parents who are so kind and loving. They always remind him of his true identity.
In the video, Isaiah’s mother sings her tearful son a beautiful song entitled, “This is why I love you” by the recording artist, MAJOR. His mother’s voice and gentle care for her child begins to bring Isaiah out of his pain.
Isaiah’s parents are indeed an inspiration. What they did for their son serves as a beautiful message to every parent.
Bullying is dangerous, and parents should be the first to comfort their children just like what Isaiah’s parents did. Parents, please remember to ask your children how their day went, remind them you are there for them always no matter what, and make them feel heard and accepted. They need to know that their hurts, thoughts and struggles are important to you. God has entrusted their tender hearts to your care.
