Hello everyone! I’d like you to meet Miko, my SIL’s eldest child. Chloe’s big brother.
He was only 6 years old when they left for the states. This year, he is turning 13 years old. How time flies really fast!
When their family migrated to the US, Miko’s Pappy (as how he dearly calls his dad), Mike’s foremost concern are bullies that may badger Miko at school.
A few years ago, they enrolled Miko to Karate and Taekwondo, which the boy did enjoy. It went perfectly with their schedule since my SIL and Mike both work, Miko goes to his Karate class after school dismissals. His parents fetch him there before they all go home.
Because it wasn’t until he was 10 years old until he had a sibling, he practically grew up alone. He is a quiet child who most of the times contents himself with video games. But he is also a very smart and disciplined kid.
Lately at school, there is a kid bigger that him who always bullies him. Miko just brushes him off. Until one day when he and the other boy were left alone in the room. The bully approached him and was about to say something, Miko who was probably pushed to his limits, pushed him against the wall and said, "Don't ever to that to me again. You don't know what I'm capable of doing. I know Karate!".
Oh-ha! That was enough to give the kid a little scare to leave Miko alone.
I felt proud for Kuya Miko that he knows how to defend himself and for having the patience to wait for the right time when to do it.
After that, the kid no longer bothered him.
How about you, have you been bullied when you’re younger? How did you deal with it?
