by believing you can make something work and are willing to think positive, you can find a way to make it work.. believe & trust in yourself, anything is possible. We control how we think, never let another take that away from you. Become more positive in how you think, even if you think it won’t work, keep saying it over and over to yourself. Always believe in yourself, love yourself enough to believe this. Trust yourself. mg©2018

YOU DON’T KNOW ME

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate or aggressively dominate others.

Children are bullied at school, on the playground, on the way home or to school, on school buses. They often hide it in fear of retaliation.  Children need to know that it’s okay to tell someone they trust. Fear keeps them a prisoner within themselves. They lose self-esteem, love for themselves, believing that they must deserve what the bully dishes out to them.  They often withdraw inside themselves, keeping to themselves, and sometimes thinking suicide is the only way out.

Kids who bully others use their power over someone either by physical strength, intimidation, using fear to control another.

As adults we must give children clear and consistent messages. Telling them how to  relate to another person in a positive and healthy way. Kids need to learn how to stand up for themselves and others. Fear keeps kids silent, Let’s speak up, help stamp out bullying.
