Recently the town I live in has taken a stand on bullying. They plan to meet and devise an updated policy on handling bullying. Here is the article by Alex Guittarr of Londonderry Times on September 6, 2018 as posted in the local newspaper.
Children have to understand there are consequences for their actions at all times in school, in the home and on the outside. I commend Londonderry School District on their dedication in making their school environment safe for children.
Two of my books have dealt with bullying, Davey & Derek Junior Detectives, Book 1, The Case of the Missing Cell Phone and my newest Series, Abby & Holly, School Dance Book 1.
As a young child and even as I grew older I suffered from bullying in school and out. We didn’t have bullying policies back then. All we did was go home and cry to our parents about any problems. My mother most of the time told me to ignore them and they would go away or stop bothering me. Sometimes that worked but other times they became more merciless with their bullying.
With today’s ever advancing technology and all the online sites bullying has become epidemic in proportions. This makes it even more crucial that we protect our children from this abuse.
Because of my former experiences I always watched out for others who were mistreated all through school and continue now to advocate for the oppressed. Please educate your children about how they should behave toward others in school and out.
For this reason, all my young children’s books and middle-grade books have life lessons that encourage children to behave, care for one another, be kind to those less fortunate, listen to and respect others, accept differences in each other as precious. We are all different but that’s what makes us special in God’s eyes. He made us that way. Why can’t we accept that and love one another for those differences.
This world would be a boring place if we are all the same. Right? Enjoy and celebrate your differences and share that with your children. If you need help in educating your children about life lessons, please check out my books on Jemsbooks.com or on the right of this post. Click on covers for purchase or go to Amazon or BN.com.
I would love to hear from readers about this subject. Take a stand and make your own communities safe for your children and advocate for a policy on handling bullying as my own town is doing. May God bless you and your children and keep them safe.
Thank you for stopping by to read about this important subject. Please do what you can to make your children understand the importance of not bullying others and to treat others as they would want to be treated.
