Not MY kid.
Today's review is Bully Bean, another book in the Lima Bear series by Thomas and Peter Weck.
Bully Bean is a great story about dealing with bullying, and turning a bully into a friend. Reminiscent of Aesop's fable about the lion and mouse, Bully Bean turns the tables on the bully, and what happens is great.
"Bullying" is a hot topic in schools, and Bully Bean gets to the heart of the matter.
Who's your kids' biggest bully?
An acquaintance (not quite a friend, but someone I see often) frequently complains about her child's experience on the bus. My boys have never had a bad time at all, yet have recently told me that this kid is acting up (mostly just annoying, but sometimes dangerous). I have kind of always suspected this. So...how do I respond to her going forward? I'm thinking that it would cause a big problem to point out that her child is the problem. If it becomes a direct issue with my boys, I'd call school, but until then?
You need to go talk to your kids about keeping their hands to themselves. And if you think that this is kids-being-kids, you belong in jail also.
If "bullied" is too big of a hot-ticket word for you, feel free to call it beat up or MURDERED.
While I *do* believe that schools need to have practices and policies in place to keep kids safe while they're there, I agree with this writer in saying that the problems begin at home and are brought to school. *Parents* should teach their children how to act/behave; that is not the job of teachers and schools.
_This is a must watch. Uhh, I want to find him and just hug him.
Babies aren't the only ones who need their parents' attention; talk to your kids. And make sure they know that they're stronger than that too ♥
For a change, here's something for the parents of teens...or even something for all of us to consider.
With a love of children and a passion for reading and writing, Kelly decided to share her experiences with others through the pages of the Crib Notes book and site.
