My child is in SK now so it isn't an issue for my family, but if it was, I would definitely not be enrolling my dc in...

Barbara Coloroso has a great book on Bullying.http://www.amazon.com/Bully-Bullied-...6928300&sr=1-3 In it she speaks of the VERY important role of the bystander. In my opinion, kids have a very defining role when someone is being bullied by just being a bystander. -Melanie
I went to therapy because of my mom. Helped tremendously. I learned what it meant to differentiate from my mother. That has made all the difference in my life and in my relationship with my mother and as a mother to my kids. -Melanie
