Our Son Jameson. He's Not Scary, He's A Little Boy...

Meet our son Jameson.
He's not scary. He's a little boy.
I'm Alice Ann Meyer.
We’ve had some encounters recently that have inspired me to write this post. 
This is something I hope everyone can read. 
This is a message that doesn’t just pertain to Jameson, but to all children who are made fun of and singled out for their differences and I'm pretty sure their parents feel the same way I do.
I want to begin by saying that I don’t hold anything against these children, 
or their parents.  
I understand that it can be extremely awkward when your child is the one making fun or being mean to another child. But, the next time this happens I hope these parents do more. 
Because although I cannot take offense, 
I would be lying if I said it didn’t hurt. It does. 
It hurts to see my child be made fun of, 
knowing that this will be a big part of his world 
for the rest of his life.
By now you might be wondering what happened to prompt these words. 
Jameson's Journey. The Blog...


  1. I don't know why people of any age can be so cruel.

  2. Good for you Alice Ann Meyer. It's not easy being the parent of a child that appears different. That difference brings out the worst in some of us but it can teach us love and compassion too.

  3. What a wonderful mother, her little boy will be alright with the love and help from his family.

  4. Of your son, proud you should be.

  5. unfortunately all humans are born prejudice, ,,it is a part of the survival instinct. and the mentally weak will always be mean, so as a parent, we must explain and teach our children this so to help them understand ,, and adjust and adapt to it. I applaud your actions Alice.

  6. I feel her pain. I had an aunt with CP who was subjected to cruelty. Those outside could not know that she was the dearest, kindest member of our family & taught all of us so much. She was gentle & trusting & very precious.

  7. A great story. Children think aloud. Most chin do not intend to hurt, they are often just expressing what they see. Yes it is up to the adults to talk it through and as themum said, go and introduce yourselves and say something nice. This way the child will learn. Pip
