Back to School - That Nervous Feeling
As an adult do you still get that nervous feeling? I know I do. There's something about the month of September.
For a lot of us, school is something we'd rather forget.
There is a lot about school not to like:
5 days a week just studying
Keeping up with the latest trends
and who could forget bullying?
It's still a problem today.
Bullying can hurt physically and mentally.
The statistics are quite alarming. 64 percent of kids have been bullied at school.
Twelve percent were bullied once or more a week. 13 percent bullied other students.
As parents, we need to tell our kids that if they are being bullied, they need to speak up. Tell their parents, teachers, guidance counselors, or another adult.
