Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

Robin Lyons' blog post #125As you read this, it’s likely your children, grandchild, nieces, or nephews may be back in school. It’s hard to keep up with the varying school start/stop dates across the US.

My grandchildren are back in school. And I’m back on the lookout for anyone suspicious who’s lurking near, working at, or attending schools, hopefully, you are too.

BLOG POST #117: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving a high school teacher.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #117Schools are out for the summer, but there has never been a better time to talk with your children about making a threat toward their school.

BLOG POST #109: This week, I’m sharing research on specific criminal cases involving students ages 11-18.

Recently, there was a report on the news about a young man calling in a bomb threat to his girlfriend’s employer so she could get off early. Here are a few examples of the real news children are hearing about, it’s no wonder they might try something similar:

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #110Whether it’s a case of school violence or about bullying, the two crimes are often connected. When bullying goes unreported it becomes he said/she said and too often the victim becomes the criminal.

BLOG POST #77: This week, I’m sharing research on several similar cases about students making threats against schools in one town in the course of a few weeks.

Now days, it’s too easy and convenient for a child frustrated with school or friends to lash out on social media. Gone are the days of saying “I hate you” today and “I’m sorry” tomorrow.
