Her Boy Was Bullied For Dots On His Skin, What The Mum Replied Has Gone Viral
Still, Erez has not been spared from strangers staring at him.
Ruthi, refuses to change their life and that of Erez. Nonetheless, the older he gets the more Erez understands when he is being bullied.
While out with Erez, both her and her son noticed a mother and daughter making fun of Erez and laughing.
Ruthi took to Facebook to explain to Erez how she felt about the experience. "I swear I got used to people staring at you, the comments behind our back; the sad fact is that no matter how much we talk of inclusion and acceptance the different one remains excluded and will always draw attention," she wrote.

She included photos of Erez and herself covered in spots, making silly faces.
"Sometimes it is even amusing. But it is hard for me when people are just mean. How can someone laugh about you, my beloved son?" she asked.

Ruthi was ready to lose her temper on the stranger but Erez had something else in mind.
"Erezi, the easiest thing would have been to explode at that mother, laughing at her young daughter’s insulting remarks about your unique look (things I can’t even put in writing). I swear that at that moment I felt as if I would squash her face (and much more). But you just smiled, took my hand and just kept on walking," she revealed.
When they got home, she asked her son to draw dots on her face so they could take selfies together.
Ruthi then posted her message along with the photos on Facebook. "A magical touch you have, my child. It’s a fact that instead of me wanting to strangle her I have decided to show everyone that I am so proud of you and your many dots," she wrote. "Especially that dot which is really close to your beautiful eye that manages to see all the goodness in this world and disregard all the rest."
