  1. I love your site topic. Bullying is something that should be taken very seriously. Words do hurt and they affect you in more ways then a lot of people realize. My daughter was bullied and we had to go to the principal about it. Of course, he dealt with it but the lasting effect it had on my daughter’s self-esteem is upsetting. I wish some schools did more with the topic but I guess it depends on the school. Thanks for talking about this subject, too many children are being bullied.

    • Thank you for your comment. I was bullied as a child by my mother as well as at school. not to long ago I learned my grand daughter was being bullied at school so I decided that I wanted to start a website on the need to stop the bullying. it breaks my heart to know a child has been or is being bullied. I found some pretty cool videos that I want to add to my site but I’m still learning. but it will be soon.

  2. We all need to hear this in today’s time and age, especially what is going on out there at the moment. We all need to equip our kids to not fall into this trap and have a confident and problem solving approach to get help if needed.

    Thank you

  3. I agree with you Miriam. We need to build a good base in our future generation and eliminate bullying as much as possible. Just like you, I know know what it feels like to be bullied. And we don’t want anyone else to go through the same experience.
    All my love and best wishes to you.
