Has your child ever been a victim of bullying? If you child has not directly been effected maybe you know some who has been bullied. It is pretty common these days, comes in many forms, and effects kids of all ages. I know that my son’s school does a pretty good job of educating the kids about what’s right and wrong when it comes to how to treat your fellow classmates. Everyday they recite the “pathway to peace” right after the Pledge of the Allegiance.
