Sister Comforts Her Bullied Brother
A sister comforted her brother this week after finding out he was bullied at school. Samantha noticed her brother was upset after school and asked him what was wrong. After hearing about his horrible day she gave him a hug and spent some time playing his favourite video game with him. Samantha reports that she feels more connected to her brother and he now talks to her more often.
