Children's story about bullying at school
Adrián was becoming very popular in class; but not because of his sympathy, but because he is a snitch.
- Who has written that bad word on the board? the professor asked.
It had not been a few seconds and Adrián accused:
- It was Agnes.
That's why, little by little, he gained the title of sneak.
There came a time when the other children did not want to be with him or play with him and he began to notice the emptiness of all his companions.
One day he came home very sad and his father asked him:
- Does something happen to you?
Adrián began to cry hyping and said:
- Nobody wants to play with me ...
- Why son? Do you know what happened?
And Adrián told his father that he was the sneak in the class.
His father, after a few seconds of silence, said: Eso - That has an easy arrangement. Show your classmates that from now on they can trust you, that you have changed.
The next morning, Adrián remained very quiet and, although he could accuse María and Luis of his bad behavior, he did not do it;
to the amazement of the children. Little by little, day by day, he managed to get his teammates to trust him again. After a while Adrián accidentally witnessed something that he did not like at all. Some kids in a superior course had Lucas cornered, another smaller one of their class and, they shouted at him, pushed him and laughed at him, while the little one cried. Adrián was shocked by what he saw but did not say anything to anyone.
Days later he discovered the same students cornering his roommate again in the bathroom. This time they had thrown him on the ground and opened his backpack; but Adrian kept quiet because of the fear of being the sneak of the class and the fear that they also mess with him.
Since then, Adrián was always attentive and close to his partner but he kept quiet and, when night came, he could not sleep thinking about poor Lucas.
One afternoon, as was customary, he saw how the thugs started to make fun of each other and beat their partner at the end of class. That day,
Adrián saw the child's suffering and look of help
and, when he arrived home, crying inconsolably, he told his parents everything. They reassured him, they told him that he had done very well telling what was happening to Lucas and they made it clear that that was not being a sneak. The next day, Adrián's parents went to school and spoke with the address, which in a short time could end this situation.Lucas and Adrián stopped suffering and now they are very good friends.
