Your son Billy is somewhat of a 'skaterboy'. He's spent a fair amount of time over your knee getting his butt spanked but today a spanking is not in the cards I don't think.

You found out that he saved a little girl from being hit by a car near the park yesterday. I driver had a mechanical failure that cause their car to swerve onto the sidewalk. There was a little girl standing there and Billy was near by. He tackled her to push her out of the way and the car came to a stop near the fire hydrant.

No one was hurt but now the little girl (one grade younger than 9 year old Billy) has made a hero out of your son. Following him around  and the like.

What are you going to do to let Billy know how proud of him you are and what will you tell him about hero worship!

Can you dig it?

I think lots of hugs and verbal praise are in order.

Are far as his new friend my only concern is if her parents know where she is at. I will help her contact her parents so they will know she is safe. Otherwise I am not going to do anything except suggest he might show her some new tricks on his board. With kids this age, they will either tire of each other and go their own way or they will become close friends.

Cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.

we are going out to eat at his favorite place and getting ice cream.


I think a trip to Danny's diner is called for as they have the best ice cream cheers

(I trust it is still open!)


Making your son aware of your sense of pride (without gushing all over him) is a greater accolade than any material reward.  

Any resulting material reward should come from the girl's parents.

The girls relationship with her saviour will sort itself out with time.


I remember once, in sixth grade, when a friend of mine gave another kid the Heimlich. He was recognized in the local paper from what I remember, and I think it was mentioned at school. In our town, something like this would still occur.

I think Billy is probably the center of enough attention right now, so I'm going to show him how proud I am of him by telling him so, and especially at how he was able to act when something needed doing. I'm also going to let him know that, while I am proud of him, and while he did a very good thing, it's really what anyone should do, and it doesn't make him special - rather, it doesn't earn him special privileges.

As for the hero worship - I'm willing to bet that, at 9, this much attention from a girl isn't especially welcome. I'll probably talk to her parents and suggest that they recommend she back off a bit.

Things will probably get back to normal soon, but Billy will always remember when he had a chance to show what he's really made of.

"In the end, it's just a story. But if you ask me, it's all true."


I think dinner is on. I think when Billy reverts to type, ie a normal little 9 year old boy who avoids the society of girls like the plague(!) the hero worship will wear off

I don't think they will ever be closed as it is too valuable a resource.

I'm with Ivor. Very Happy

Ditto the rest.


I will of coarse take Billy out for ice cream!!
