Welcome back to Wednesday Afternoons With Nancy, where we talk about everything related to bullying … even the kind that happens at home. (Gulp)
You’ve been talking a lot lately about how hard it is to realize you’re bullying your own family members and, even worse, how hard it is NOT to! So even though we’ve talked about not bullying moms before, Tribelet Elder Melody and I thought this would be a good time to underline that with one of our Mini-Videos for Mini-Women.
By the way, Melody is one of the girls in the picture above. See if you can guess which one she is by shirt color. We’ll let Melody tell you the answer next time!
Meanwhile, settle in and watch Am I Bullying My Parents? Then tell us if YOU have been tearing off pieces of somebody in your house.
We’ll still love you if you report in with a “yes.” In fact, we’ll love you so much, we’ll even help you figure out ways to keep your home-attitude positive and unbullying. For, like, ever.
Hello, Tribelet! Was Sara’s story last week awesome, or what? You were great friends to her, pouring on the praise she deserved. She’s such a good writer that I think some of you (KAYLEE, maybe?) are now kind of shy about sharing YOUR creative work. Seriously? This is US. This is a safe meeting! The whole purpose of this blog is for you to have a place to tell the truth about what’s going on, especially in your mind.
SO LET’S HAVE THOSE STORIES AND POEMS AND DRAWINGS!
They don’t have to be just about bullying. Anything that has to do with hard things in friendships or dealings with siblings works too. Remember, this is YOUR blog. We want to hear YOUR voices.
* Have you ever had a friend or family member who was nice to you but horrible to someone else? It’s okay to admit that made you feel special (You ARE a human being, after all), but how ELSE did you feel when he or she turned that mean glare on someone?
* Why is it hard to confront a friend and say, “What WAS that you just did?” What are we afraid of?
* Have you ever found yourself picking up the not-so-awesome habits of a friend?
* Did Sarah’s and my advice help you?
Don’t forget to email me if you want to contribute even a few special sentences to the blog. This is YOUR gallery!
