  1. This girl isn’t the first to commit suicide because of bullying and unfortunately won’t be the last. When will the schools put a stop to it? They have to be informed before they can address it. I can’t imagine the abuse went unnoticed by anyone, teachers or students. Yet, no one intervened? I know it’s been going on since humans inhabited the earth. And of course, it occurs in the animal kingdom as well. We’re supposed to be above that. But we aren’t. How many kids grow up with parents who bully, abuse, mistreat them? How many kids see their own parents bully others? How many siblings bully their younger sibs? And what about teachers who bully students? Bosses bullying employees. Police bullying citizens. And the beat goes on. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. What happened to the humane part of being human?

      Thank you for your comment, Trish. Sadly, the beat does go on. How we treat each other has taken a serious wrong turn. It’s hard for children who are victims of bullying to understand the reason a bully bullies is because they have low self-esteem and are emotionally fragile.

  2. Robin, how long ago did the 7th grader kill his teacher? It was practically unheard of in our day. Now, it’s just another story in the news about an angry kid crossing the line. There’s something wrong with that last statement, like the fact it happens so frequently, the shock wears off almost as soon as we finish hearing/reading it. Kids nowadays have developed no coping skills to deal with anger. They act rashly and end up taking lives and ruining theirs and their family’s. I’ve seen the anger in my own grandchildren. For whatever reason, they get mad and have a meltdown. They have loving parents working with them on managing those bad feelings. But what about the kids who don’t? There has to be an outlet or that anger festers and builds until it explodes into a violent reaction. How to stop it before it happens is the big question.

  3. Just finished reading your newsletter on the teacher who abused his position and students with lewd behavior and sick classroom ‘tests’ to satisfy his own sexual fantasies. Unbelievable that it took 32 years for anyone to believe the kids and finally send his ass to prison. The principal(s) should also be punished with more than a slap on the hand for helping to perpetuate the abuse by choosing to ignore and refusing to believe the reports. Parents have to be wary when turning over their precious children to educators who may have anything but education on their agenda. Thank you for opening our eyes to these sexual deviants that slither through the background checks like the snakes that they are without raising a red flag.

      I agree! Well said, Trish. Thank you for reading my posts. Luckily, it’s a small percentage of school staff who should never have been allowed into the school in the first place. Those few take away from all the great stuff going on in schools.

  4. Hi Robin. Took me long enough to get here. Well, I had visited it before but not since we’ve connected so strongly. Your blogs are phenomenal, pertinent to today’s schools, as well as your forthcoming book. What a smart way to lead into its debut. I’m waiting with bated breath for the release date. I’ll be the first to purchase it. Well, I’ll try to get there in time (lol). I’m thrilled we’ve developed a friendship and hope it lasts a lifetime. You’re an incredible person. I’m honored as well as blessed to have met you. Love, Trish

      Thank you so much, Trish! I appreciate your kind words and newly formed friendship. Your support is so kind, but you may have a challenge to beat my sister and kids to that first copy. 😉 Love back to you, girlfriend!
