It’s troubling when you see headline news stories like this: “Roseville instructional aide accused of having sex with student.” …detectives charged the 21-year-old with suspicion of three felony charges relating to unlawful sex with a minor under the age of 18….

That’s what aired last night on the local ABC network in Sacramento. I’ll watch for updates to see where this case goes. *Innocent until proven guilty*

This week the topic isn’t exactly a sex crime, more like a fatal attraction. I felt it was important to share yesterday’s news because it plays into the big picture of crimes occurring at or connected to schools. Sadly, these types of crimes occur more frequently than my weekly blog posts.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #107When researching cases, I often reflect on situations my adult children experienced when they were in school and what my grandchildren see nowadays. Sadly, they’ve all crossed paths with a bully.

When it comes to bullying, there are too many cases. Parents are in denial. Schools are overworked and underfunded. Law enforcement has bigger fish to fry.

I’m certain if I asked each of you reading this post to share a bully incident; you’d ALL have a story to tell.

Thank you for reading and for caring about children.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #105This case made me think of a Stephen King quote, “We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.”

Researching and writing about creepy people and disgusting behavior is worth it when someone who’s read one of my stories or blog posts notices questionable behavior connected to a school and says or does something about it.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Keep your eyes open and never assume children are safe at school. If something seems amiss, it probably is. Say something.

BLOG POST #105: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving high school basketball players.

BLOG Post #102Thank you for taking time from your busy day or night to read my post. After you’ve read today’s research, be sure to remind your children and their children to change all social media passwords.

I have a 12-year-old granddaughter. This case made me think of her and a few of her friends. She’s experienced some bullying, but nothing like what happened in this case.

If you have a pre-teen or a teenager, you know it’s difficult if not impossible to keep them away from social media and the Internet.

Kids and the Internet

Depending on whether your child(ren) are younger, or older, this post will either give you a ‘heads up’ on what’s on the horizon for you or make you appreciate that this (hopefully) didn’t happen to any of your kiddos.
