Lesson Learned

You got upset at the Chinese school. All the teachers tried to be nice, but I think you felt a lot of pressure. You were scared. 
I said Victor, all the people like you. You said why? Why do they like me. How could I explain that as a half-Chinese half-foreigner that Chinese people were so interested in you? They think you are beautiful, smart, and special. I realized that you didn’t understand or appreciate why people wanted to give you attention, see you, talk to you, put you on a kind of pedestal. You just wanted to be a kid like the other kids and enjoy the class. I needed to see things from your perspective. I learned a lesson.
