STOP and Watch This With Your Children NOW. . .

I came across this video on Facebook yesterday and happened to watch it.  It is only a few minutes long but something you should watch alone first, and then watch with your children.  I was home with my 8-year-old son and his friend and we watched this together.  We then discussed bullying.  Yes, they’re only 8, but I felt as though they are old enough to understand, and old enough to experience the “shock factor”. No child should be bullied and no child should have to fear going to school.  This is horrific and preventable.  I think as parents we are all responsible for our kids.  I understand we cannot control everything, but at least take a step, take a few minutes out of your day and watch this video with your children.  Then talk about it.  I had a 45 minute conversation with two little boys who had so many questions. . .  No child or family should ever have to go through something like this.  My heart breaks for this family and for the young man who thought this was his only way out. . .
