“My son was bullied at school today because he had an unhealthy snack. (Homemade chic chip cookie [sic]. 1.) School. Has. Changed,” she began writing.
“I wish that “bully” could go back in time to my primary school in Toowoomba in the early 80’s for just one little lunch. Cookies were biscuits, shoes were optional, and bullies were not known for their health food programs.”
Laurie went on to say she was conflicted about how she should teach her eight-year-old son about resilience and fighting back.
“I really, really want to advise my son to tell that kid to f*ck off. Just nice and simple. Right in his smug little face. Old school. Ugh. I know I can’t though. That kid is hiding behind the niceness of the school. It’s hard being a bogan parent sometimes.”
