Although today is a day for pranks and fools, I feel very strongly that no one and I mean NO ONE ever be bullied, teased, maliciously hurt, or made to feel inferior to anyone else. I don’t know how many of you have read about the increase in bullying in our schools (whether large or small), in our neighborhoods, and yes, even in our churches. It breaks my heart to think of kids everywhere being made to feel less than anyone else. The impact that bullying has on a persons self worth/esteem is profound. One does not just ‘grow out of it" or overcome the experiences of childhood taunting.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, talk to your children about bullying. Please do not enable or dismiss their behavior. If you are aware of this going on and do nothing about it, YOU are just as GUILTY. For shame I say!
I encourage you to go to the following link and see how bullying has affected the lives of others:
make a difference, stand up for those that are not able to do so for themselves.
