Kids who do not wear their spectacles are telling us something. Your kids refuse to wear eyeglasses for a variety of reasons, one of which can be bullying. Getting kids to wear their spectacles can be a herculean task but many parents have done it! Some parents constantly remind their kids to wear specs, some try to inspire them through their fave superheroes who wear eyeglasses and some even turn to Twitter for help. Yes, Musa’s story is an exemplary case in point and an excellent story to inspire your child to wear their specs.
This is the story of a boy named Musa, who was bullied by his classmates for wearing glasses. Do people around you call you names like four-eyes and nerd? It’s an experience all the specs-wearers go through, young and old alike. Should you be disheartened? Never! Because as you grow up, you’ll understand that what the world thinks of you doesn’t matter as long as you’re happy and healthy. What should really matter is what you think of yourself—very rightly enlightened by celebrities across the globe who came forward on Twitter to cheer up little Musa. A special thanks to his papa for turning to Twitter for help, next thing we witnessed was an outpouring of support from globally renowned stars who finally managed to convince Musa that glasses are cool. Today, he loves wearing them.
Interesting story, right kids? Here’s what happened…
One day Musa refused to wear his glasses. He told his parents that he doesn’t like wearing glasses because his classmates call him names and laugh at him for wearing glasses. His father realized that he needed to see the world through different eyes. He wanted to show his son that he wasn’t alone and that people who wore glasses can also be cool. So he tweeted about Musa’s struggles at school in the hopes to motivate him to wear his glasses.
“This is my son Musa, from last few days he is very upset because some of his schoolmates said; you look worst in glasses, he’s hesitant to wear glasses anymore. I told him let’s ask the world. Doesn’t he looks great in glasses too?” he asked the Twitterati.
