This space is my little corner of the blogosphere where I have lots of fun sharing fashion finds, nail polish colors, travel fun, and the occasional recipe. Of course, all of this is flavored with personal opinion and experience (I'm not a professional at any of this) but I usually try to limit my content to these fun diversions and not get into any deep discussions. On the rare occasion, though, something comes along that seems so urgent and important that I just cannot not share.
Most of us have seen the headlines about the effect that bullying is having on young people today. In some cases it is absolutely tragic. I recently ran across a post on the blog Single Dad Laughing: Memoirs of a Bullied Kid. It is the most powerful discussion of the topic I have seen.
Now, it's a long post and takes some time to read. In the first part, the author recounts his own experiences, and in later paragraphs, he offers some real wisdom, insight and answers as to what we, as adults - parents or not - can do to help both the bullied and the bullies. His words had an impact on me and I think he offers a powerful voice for action and change. As of today he has over two thousand reader comments.
