Just reading some of the news stories lately, I'm terrified for my daughter (17 months old) to grow up in this world.
There's so much hate and intolerance, and so many high school kids have taken their own lives due to being bullied and ridiculed! I was bullied in elementary school and some in junior high, but it never got so bad that I wanted to take my own life. I can't imagine how their parents feel; I can't imagine how the parents of the bullies feel knowing they raised their children to think it's okay to bully and ridicule others.
What are you doing for your children to make them strong enough to survive high school? If your kids are being bullied, how do they handle it?

You prepare them by setting standards and boundaries. Teaching them right from wrong. About making choices and their consequences. You teach them about faith, love, and truth. Give them examples, showing both sides. Example: Truth = trust. Lying = mistrust. Friends: Positive ones bring out the best in you while negative ones get you into trouble you can't get out of... If you have a support system set in place. Letting them know you may not always agree with them, but willing to listen. What are the possitive things to look for in others. What are the red flags. Like if they are always telling you what to do, or controlling you, its a red flag. Hope this helps give you a few ideas...
