In my opinion Genghis, the only thing that gets ripping into a ten year old even close to justifiable is if it is something he has control over. The whole parents thing is just such a bad thing to make somebody feel bad about, he has absolutely no control over it and may already blame himself for it.

It may explain why he was being such a dick in the first place; to take his mind away from his own troubles.

Parents getting divorced can be hard on a kid, and it obviously was for him. It isn't uncommon for people to try to make others the focus of misery so that they don't feel so alone. Of course, he could have just been a prickish little kid.

If that is the case, I think it is fair to consider our friend genghis here as a sort of hero in this little scenario. If you think about it that way, what genghis did was use a little bit of tough love that seemed harsh at first but had an excellent end result. What he has done is force the child to face his troubles head on so he could reconcile with them. Without such a correcting force this child could have faced years of hardship due to the unrectified damage caused by the sudden jarring impact such an event could have in a child's life. I don't know about you folks, but I'm about ready to give genghis a goddamn medal for stepping up to the task like a real productive member of society should. bud, you're a true hero.

Or maybe genghis is just a fag. Probably the latter.

Not that he didn't deserve it, but you still shouldn't stoop to his level.

Eventually, kids need to learn that if they're going to dish out shit they're going to get it back. 10 seems like a great age to starting learning that.

You shouldn't feel bad. The kid was being c*nty and got what he deserved. And your response was so out of the blue it made me laugh hysterically (note, the idea of divorce does not bring me joy, it was merely the delivery of said joke.)

Edit:
My parents got divorced when I was 14.
I was not sad about it.
It was far better than living in a house with the both of them screaming at each other 24/7.


Edit2:
@genghis, I wish I could have been there to see it.

Nah, I do shit like that at the skate park all the time. If someone's gonna talk shit they better be able to accept shit in return. If they can't oh well, sucks for them.

Also I like how you didn't just give the kid equal shit, you went and one upped that bitch.

Do you have to ask this!?

I'd be more concerned if the parents found out.
Or at least the parent that has custody.
The other one will find out during visiting hours.
