Braden Blair: Bullied Boy With Developmental Issues Asks School To Help His Tormentors, Not Punish Them [Video]

10-year-old Braden Blair is a highly intelligent boy who is experiencing vision problems and developmental issues. Inherently, the child tolerates his share of bullying — and has for years. Braden doesn’t want his elementary school to punish those bullying him, however. Alternatively, he’s asking that the bullies get the help it takes to help change their way of thinking, the New York Daily News reports.

One of the most common ways bullying is handled involves some sort of disciplinary action, but Braden opts for a different route to combat a problem almost every school in the nation faces on a daily basis.

KBOI 2 News covers this story about a wise student from Chaparral Elementary School in Meridian, Idaho submitting an idea to his school that will help him and others who torment other kids.

Young Braden says that it can hurt when fellow students poke fun at him. He says he feels like he’s “invisible” sometimes because he doesn’t have many friends and “even the most dumb thing can hurt your feelings.”
