Yeah, this is a book blog and I usually keep my personal stories out of it, but this topic is close to my heart.
My fourth grader is being bullied. I just met with his teacher Monday to discuss the issue. He goes to a small Christian school and they are not immune to such things (in case anyone wondered). As teachers usually are, she was unaware of the extent of the problem.
In the midst of lesson plans, state test scores, and field trips, I know how easy it is to miss. I pray I'll recognize bullies in my own classroom.
Found a fantastic blog article this week I feel compelled to share. I might just send it to my son's teacher: Memoirs of a Bullied Kid.
If you think of it, can you keep my son in your prayers?
And to bring this entry back to books, did you know there was such a thing as book bullying? I didn't either. But Carin's discussing it at A Little Bookish.
Have you ever been bullied?
