So often disabled kids and LGBTQ kids are tormented, teased, and excluded. Some of them kill themselves. What would have happened if others were there for them?
For people who have been bullied as children, especially in school, adding people you went to school with on social media can often be a challenging process.
With new legislation in Michigan that allows bullies to justify their bad behavior and blame it on their religion, it is time for parents to step up and parent their children. Parents need to teach their kids that even those who are different are human and have feelings, too.
When I went to school, I was bullied for being fat, disabled, walking funny, dressing funny, having a weird family, and so many other things. I have felt the pain of a suicidal teen. We need to step in and prevent bullying before this epidemic of hate and intolerance gets worse.
