I am sitting here just so down about this. Maybe I should have said something. But I was shocked at how fast I started crying, so I really couldn't say anything. Some of you may remember I have a developmentally delayed 4 year old. Today we went to our church's annual picnic. My son was acting up a little, and didn't like me telling him what to do. He left the food line and curled up in a ball on the sidewalk to hide his face from me. There were 4 young teenage boys behind us, joking around with each other. They were telling each other how "dumb" the other one was. "This rock is smarter than you", "you have sheep brains". Well, then one pointed at my son, and said, "this kid has a higher IQ than yours." My first cruel comment that I have had to bear. I expected it one day, but NOT from a fellow church member. Not from a kid I speak to every Sunday. The first thing I must do is forgive this boy. How hard it is to forgive a church member over a non-member!! But...should I say anything? DO I tell him that God made my child, and to insult him is to poke fun at what God made? I feel weird confronting a teenager, but so much of me hurts to just let it go and not tell him! How would you have handled this?
