Ms. Zhou from Wuhan, Hubei, has recently left her pre-kindergarten son Xiaolei in his grandparents’ house, as the two seniors hoped to have more quality time with their beloved grandson before he went to school. However, Ms. Zhou found his son, who used to be nice to everyone, became aggressive and difficult when she picked him up one month later.
It turned out that Xiaolei had been receiving bully prevention training from his grandparents to “keep him safe from bullies.”
The one-month training program was quite effective. When asked: “If someone pushes you, what would you do?” Xiaolei answered: “I will grab his arm and bite him!” When asked: “What if he cries loud to alert the teacher?” He responded: “Then I will lie on the ground and cry louder!”
Much to Ms. Zhou’s amusement, Xiaolei’s grandparents also taught him some special moves to hurt someone without leaving actual injury, according to the boy’s aunt. “His self-protection awareness still needs to be further improved,” Xiaolei’s grandparents told Ms. Zhou, who is worried about potential negative influences by senior classmates.
Chen Hongmei, a child education expert, believes such inappropriate training will only make the child even more anxious about school and make it harder for him to adapt in society. “Every child has his or her own way to interact with other people. Adults should not interfere too much,” Chen said.
