Laura Mazza -ViaOther mothers were quick to opine that the boy should have sought assistance from an adult rather than resorting to violence, while a few share how their kid faces the same thing at school. “Honestly, I would be super proud of my son if it were him! Sadly some teachers don’t always help the right children. I’m glad your son has the strength and support to know right from wrong and be truthful and stand up for what is right! Go mama and go boyo!” User Tasha Ram wrote.

A third, Renee Flesher, opined Luca is taken for a treat. She stated: ‘Take your kid for ice cream; he has earned it. If the adults around him failed him and he knew he could face the consequences and still chose to stand up for himself, you, my dear, are raising a fearless leader.’
