Lets Take Down Grandma !

My friend “Nora” was very shaken by something that happened to her recently. While her six grandchildren were visiting, the oldest boy (age 13) shouted, “Let’s take her down!” and all six of the children attacked her, knocking her to the ground, then groping and hitting her.

Nora is 73 and only 5 foot 2. Her oldest grandchild is 5 foot 7 and weighs 140 pounds. All of the grandchildren are large for their ages. The youngest, who is 7, weighs well over 70 pounds.My question is, what can elderly people do to protect themselves? Nora took the beating because she was afraid if she fought back, she’d be turned in for child abuse.
