IT’S FINALLY HERE!
I’m so excited to finally see these characters starting to come to life!! And I wanted to give you a sneak peek.
Looking at this pic what do you think? Is this rude, is it mean, or is it bullying?
Author Trudy Ludwig shares how to distinguish the differences:
“Rude is a child accidentally saying or doing something that hurts someone else.
Mean is when a child purposefully says or does something to hurt someone once (maybe twice).
Bullying involves intentionally aggressive behavior, repeated over time, that involves an imbalance of power.”
Did you guess right? Unfortunately, bullying is at an all-time high in recent years due to social media. As a result, we now have many individuals who contend with cyberbullying. This is a topic I hold near and dear to my heart. Both my son and I had been bullied at the same grade level (4th grade) and I have incorporated our experiences into an upcoming book. I look forward to sharing with you the process of my writing journey and offer some valuable resources for this relevant topic.
Thankfully, there are concerned parents, teachers, coaches, counselors, and organizations who are giving out resources to help aid our kids in bully prevention. Also, I will be releasing a number of tools and resources moving forward with this upcoming book to guide and empower individuals with help as needed. Stay tuned!
Blessings and Love,
