I can remember when I was in 5th grade when some bullying was happening to me by what these days we would call the 'mean girls'. They were the popular ones and I just me, not part of that group. I remember wanting to be 'in' with them but I never was. There was one of the popular girls, my height (petite) who was pretty but she was also a bully. I wanted to be her friend but she definitely didn't treat me nice. I felt like I could be harmed if I said something wrong, said nothing at all or told on them for talking when I was in charge of the class. I remember eventually telling my parents and teacher about what was going on and how I was being treated.
Children need to tell their parents and teachers what's going on in their lives. They don't need to keep this inside of them. They need an outlet to speak to people they can trust. There's a world out there of bullying going on and it's resulting in children taking their own lives. Maybe we can save the life of at least one child that's hurting and make a huge difference!
