Stop Saying That Bullying is Normal in School

School boards have done a great job of keeping kids safer at school, and we should be celebrating that.

It was my first day of junior high, and my best friend Janelle told me that I shouldn’t be wearing my hair like that to school.

I think of my children now and marvel at what they can get away with.

Although we did run into Deena in the years to come, we never saw her in school after that.

Although my kids are still only in middle school, I have faith that they will not have to deal with this type of bullying.
