ABC13 / Via abc7news.com She has since taken the post down because of negative comments. You see, Star, the boy’s mother, told ABC13 that she heard her son had been calling other boys at school “stupid” and “idiot." ABC13 / Via abc7news.com She was having none of it. So Star made her 5th-grade son wear this t-shirt to school for one day that simply stated, “I’m a bully” on the front and on the back of the shirt. ABC13 / Via abc7news.com She even drew a sad face under the text to drive the point home. Is this a unique parental move? Absolutely. But it totally worked, according to Star. ABC13 / Via abc7news.com She said she has noticed her son is already behaving a lot better towards his siblings and cousins. Star told ABC13 her Facebook post was a way for her to reach out to the parents of any of the kids her son may have bullied so they could receive a personal apology. ABC13 / Via abc7news.com It's important to note that Star spoke with her son's counselor and teachers at his school, all of whom were 100 percent on board. Still, her approach has been met with mixed reactions.
