“My son is a good-hearted defender. He is kind and thoughtful but he has never been one to stand for injustice,” Katie told Bored Panda. She also said that he’s homeschooled, and the class is only a once-a-month kind of thing.

“He hasn’t fought anyone before,” she said. The mom strongly believes that her son only hit that child as a last resort to settle the situation. “He did all the right things first.”

Katie also said that all of the boys have played together nicely after the incident.
