    I watched the video from “Take Five”. Amelia is such a cutie! :)

    I’m sorry your daughter is being bullied, Jennifer. I’m afraid I, too, have felt that hairline crack in my heart. My daughter was bullied when she was a child. We start out hoping that our children won’t ever encounter mean-spiritedness but sadly, that’s not the way of humanity. :( My daughter is 27 now and she’s a strong young woman, I think due in part to those painful experiences. I am praying for your daughter and her classmate. I pray that your daughter’s experience will be for good in her life.

    Hugs to you. :)

    I’m supposed to be “screen-free,” so I’m quickly typing this comment before the kids bust me. But I just had to comment on the bullying – good vibes to you, your daughter, and the “mean girl.” Is there by chance a movie playing near you called “Bully”? It’s a documentary that I’d like to see but I’m afraid my heart would shatter for a little while. There may be some good ideas in it or it might spark some of your own brilliant ideas.

    Loving all the weaving!

    We’ve dealt with bullying, too. I think everyone does. Lots of talking and conversations with teachers go a long way.

  4. There are some really excellent books out regarding this subject for both the bully and the bullier. As you suggested, both kids need guidance. You never want your child to feel like a victim and some of the books are geared for younger kids and some for older kids. Good luck. I had a dreadful 8th grade year and I survived it because of the helpful support from older sister. I like The Recess Queen and Queen Bees and Wannabees, for example, and wish I had books like this to help me back in 1968.
