Dear Mom, How do you even begin to write a letter or put into words how much you love someone? Love is a gift, an emotion, a comfort and something not everyone in this life is blessed to experience from their family.

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE AMAZING SCHOOL WHO SUPPORTED MY SON: TOGETHER WE CAN END BULLYING

I see that we need to change the way we approach eradicating bullying, and to stop leaving it to the teachers and the students. We need to work collaboratively as parents and educators to listen to the needs of the children and to let them know we support them. As parents we also need to step up and realize that all children are capable of bullying and all are susceptible to being bullied, but if we can emulate the patience and support that your amazing school has shown, maybe someday kids can learn in safety.
