His arm us great, and only hurts at night, and his self esteem is in good stead, despite the bullying, and helped in no small part by hearing the stories from his parents, other grown ups an even other kids; about dealing with meanies sometimes.
Aroha Nui (that means big Love) to all if you. Thank you from all the Happy Hobbits.

He is a good man, and he is going to do just great.
My son James got bullied at his age – and I remember the day he came home from school to tell me his closest friend was turning nine, and that there would be a party but he wasn’t going. When I asked him how he felt about that he replied “Nah I’m not upset because all of the mean boys are going to the party, so instead his Dad is taking he and I to laser strike the day after the party and that way we get a nice time together without hanging out with those dumb kids”.
From that moment I knew he would be alright. And he was!
