Dear my girl, my boy, and my teen,
You three are so strong and so amazing. I’m proud of you every day. In this day and age of social media it’s hard to be a kid/teen. Everything you do or say can be broadcast. So please be sure to not share anything that will cause harm to another or yourself. Make sure that when you are walking the halls you are there for the little guy. The quiet one who stands alone. The one that’s being picked on and other kids are being mean too. Know that it’s not ok to be mean to kids and you need to take a stand when others are doing it to friends too. Watch for the signs of bullying and be aware that others may not be as strong as you are. I love you and am proud of you as the strong children you are becoming. You both have such strong wills and spirits. You are sweet and kind with a funny wit too. I love how you are a friend to others and I pray you never make a child feel less than. You make me smile daily. Thank you for teaching me to be a mom and holding my hand as we find our way in this world. Let’s move forward and be there for others.
I didn’t know how much I could worry until I had children. Now I’m a basket case trying to make sure that my kids are not being bullied or bullying. I’ve told my kids repeatedly that I will always be in their corner. On Friday my son went to a dance and the kids were being mean to him. He called me and said he wanted to come home and I hopped up and went to pick him up. The teacher was trying to talk him into staying and I was like, ” no it’s fine. He is coming home.” I want my kids to know that I have their back. I hate that they were being mean. But he knows I’m here for him. As long as I’m alive I’m going to ask them to stand up for others too. Check out this video about the RaiseAGiant program. You’ll be glad you did.
