Kindness 101

Ellen DeGeneres usually doesn’t get serious on her show but yesterday she interviewed the woman whose 11 year old committed suicide just this past April 6th. This boy killed himself because he was getting bullied at school. This is one issue we really need to get serious about and I thought Ellen had a good idea…early on along with their math, science, physical education class we also have a compassion/kindness class. Just like some parents don’t teach their kids history at home their also not teaching them that bullying is wrong. I also read in the paper this week where a little girl didn’t know what to do because her autistic brother was getting teased in school. This is just ridiculous.

 Carl, this 11 year old boy, was being bullied about “possibly” being gay. Many people are saying how proud they are of the first runner up for Miss America this past weekend for speaking her true thoughts about how she thinks marriage should be between a man and a woman. I’m sorry but the sooner gays are counted as equal and not these misfits in society that don’t have equal rights the longer being gay will be seen as odd and a target for teasing. Every little step will help so no, I am in no way “proud” of Carrie Prejean for contributing to the narrow mindedness of people.

There are many reasons kids bully; parents…if you only do ONE thing for your child, teach them to be nice people. Bullying must stop. I think we all know most bullies have low self esteem so work on that too. Did you know before conception that if you had a child it’s your duty to be a responsible parent?
