'"Stop bullying now!'
In recent months we have all heard of young adults committing suicide because of bullying type behaviors. Bullying is more prevalent in our society than once was thought. It is not only in the elementary, middle school, high schools, and colleges, but it can also sometimes be seen in our own homes, the Internet, work places, hospitals, and extended care facilities where some of our most vulnerably reside. I believe this is a very serious problem and through zero tolerance and education we can effect change. As mothers, health care workers, and educators, through our blogging community, face book, and twitter pages we have a strong forum to get the word out. I found a wonderful site that has been developed for adults and children as well that I found quite interesting and helpful. I hope you will take the time to stop there and then pass the information along to your families and friends.
As I was thinking about this subject, and deciding what to post, I came across the following blog where a mother has written a letter to her daughter and then posted it here in our blog world for others to see. It is very well written and I couldn't have been said it any better. I hope you will take the time to read it and then pass along to someone you love.
With warmest regards, Carol
