Listen to their Quiet tell them you will always be there for them.  That you love them. 

Most of all it is not their fault. 

Never ever!

Listen to their Quiet.  Do you hear them asking if it is their fault?

     No it is not.  Never is it the victims fault.  Not even once.

How do you explain all the meanness that is happening in the schools?

Why is it still happening?    It isn't simple teasing or calling someone a stupid name.

Do you remember recess?  Playing with your friends.  

Maybe push someone out of the way to ge...

Listen to their Quiet.  They think they know it all.  

We know that they don't.  They are just kids not old enough to have so much pain.

Pain caused by Bullies.

Listen to their quiet.  You might be surprised even shocked what you hear. 

Could be bad or worse than bad... Find out before you jump to conclusions. 

But you might be right.

Their quiet might sound like bragging.  What do you do if it is true?

Reme...

Listen to their Quiet no matter what you are their parent.  Sometimes you will make decisions they don't like.

Someday they will understand.

Maybe even do the same thing with their children.

Listen to their Quiet...

I know I am kind of new to the world of bullying.

But...

How on earth did things get so messed up?

Bullying is being mean to someone else on purpose. No reason needed.

Bullies come in all shapes and sizes  A few...

Listen to their Quiet they are counting on you to make it better.

Bullies rob their victims of happiness.

To bully another classmate is like them showing you everything they don't have and you do.

That is what I want to say when someone asks why you should visit my site & read what I have to say.

 

But... I am not sure it works for everyone.

 

If you read any of my posts

please read Monster vs Angel.

I didn't know Jeanette Maples but my heart feels like I did.

 

How can so many bad things to one sweet girl?

 

If one person would have stepped up and done something maybe should be alive today.  A teacher, librarian, child services someone.

 

Her mom is on death row, step-dad a life sentence, the biological father got lots of money & never had any contact with her, and child services failed her over and over.

 

Her half-brother and sister are now with people who care about them.

 

These victims of bullying and Jeanette have things in common.  

 

If I had seen her looking the way she did I would have taken her out of the situation.

 

First I would have hugged her & tell her she is safe.

 

Take her for medical care & notified child services if the hospital had not already.

 

She was 15 and weighed 50 pounds.  Exposed bones from beatings& infections, and so much more. 

 

I looked into her mother's eyes.  Evil is what I saw.

 

I am human, a nurse, and I care.

 

That is why you should visit my website.  With a hankie.

 

I am not sure how but I will do more.

 

 

Evil shows up in places where you would not suspect.

 

Like school bullies...

Mean girls...

Teachers who ignore...

The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about.

When the dark time comes so does the pain deep within.

If the moon is full there can be more to see.

What you don't see is that one spot that never gets light.

It doesn't grow, it doesn't shrink it just is.

That means I am still here.

I will be OK another day.

Breathe.

It's just a bad day,

not a bad life.

When your brain tells you to something & your heart says something different what should you do...

I usually follow my heart if no one gets hurts and I get the desired outcome. 

 

But sometimes I don't

What I am really doing is what the person wants but doesn't want to upset their family.

 

As a nurse, my patients come first 

 

Always will.  

 

I stick up for the underdog.
