He stated that instead of reacting, he addressed his son on the best way to revenge on his friend in the most civil way. His approach was, however, noticed by the school authority who invited him to teach other students about emotional intelligence.

How I reacted to witnessing my son intentionally pushed to the ground

“Went to pick my children in school yesterday
It was raining heavily
My son saw the car and started running towards me
One of his friends deliberately stuck a leg out and tripped him
My son fell face first on the grass
His clothes dirty
He got up and charged at the culprit
I got
Out of the car
I called his name
He looked at me and stopped
I smiled and said “You are royalty, you will not retaliate to the barb of commoners”
He nodded, picked his bag and got in the car
We began to talk about interesting stuff
I acted like what happened didn’t happen
It is
not an issue at all
This morning as I drove him to school
I told him if his friend came to apologize he should be gracious
If his friend didn’t apologize, he shouldn’t keep malice but he must keep the friend at arms length
No good friend willingly trips his or her friend
When I got to their school today two teachers were waiting for me
They said they saw what happened yesterday and would like me to come and speak to the students on emotional intelligence sometimes next week
I declined because my calendar is full
I can’t fit them in at all
When I picked up my son I asked him if his friend came to apologise
He said yes
I said and what did you do?
He said I accepted the apology but kept far away from him
I nodded!
We did ice cream treat and it has become one of those life experiences now! Royalty is a lifestyle!”
