Why is it important to address bullying?

Whenever I get asked this question I usually answer from different perspectives. I am a former teacher, an author, and a god mother. From the perspective of being a former teacher, I don’t understand how bullying can be allowed to occur in schools. This is something that I addressed year round in my classroom. I had a strict ‘no violence’ policy and I enforced that policy everyday. It may sound harsh. However, I truly believe that every child has the right the come to school and learn in safe environment. As an author, I address the issue because I travel all over the country and bullying is a problem in almost every school. I wrote my book about bullying in order to give students a way to address these issues with their parents, teachers, and peers. As a god mother, I have addressed the issue of bullying with my god daughter. I want to make sure that she understands ways to deal with bullies and ensure that she can go to school and feel safe. I look forward to touring this book and holding discussions with schools about this important issue.

How long should my child read?

This is a question that I get often from parents. I always tell parents the same things. You should not think of reading in terms of length. Otherwise kids will read for whatever time you ask and then put the book down. You should get your child to think of reading in terms of reading books, magazines, etc. that they enjoy. The one thing that we all can agree on is that children that are avid readers tend to read for enjoyment. They read without being told to pick up a book, read for fun, read as a hobby, read for hours on end, and read book after book after book. Let me know if you want resources to aid your child in their reading journey.
