While having “the talk” about your menstrual cycle can be quite the awkward moment to begin with, it can be even more embarrassing for young girls when they start their period for the first time in public — particularly surrounded by peers.
That’s exactly what one young girl had the horror of experiencing while on the bus ride home from school.
Unfortunately, several others noticed what happened as well, and hushed giggles could be heard throughout the bus.
Totally mortified and completely unsure of what to do, the girl just sat there in silence, praying she could crawl in a hole and be unnoticed.
That’s when one older boy decided to approach her. Expecting some rude remark or hurtful joke, she winced at the thought of someone coming up to her, per her circumstances.
Instead, the boy did something totally sweet and unexpected that has since circulated its way around the Internet after the girl’s mom shared it with the Gurgaon Moms Facebook group.
The boy came up [close] to her daughter’s ear and said…
“that she had a stain on the back of her pants and gave her his sweater to tie around her waist so she could walk home off of the bus.”
Initially taken aback and embarrassed, she told the boy it was all okay, but he persisted in his heartwarming gesture to help hide the “incident” that had drawn attention to her pants.
“[He whispered] to her ‘I have sisters, it’s all good!’ “
Upon hearing about what happened, the girl’s mom praised the teen’s mama for “raising him right.”
“We hear so many bad things about today’s youth, and I wanted to share something positive!” she wrote.
One commenter added, “Not many would [have] done this. I’m sure he’ll become a gentleman in years to come and he will treat a woman how she should be treated.”
Kudos to this young man for making a manly move when he could have just laughed and stared along with the rest. His mama sure did raise him right!
