Classes are starting…. Please sit down with your child for 5 minutes and explain to them that being very tall, short, chubby, skinny, black, brown or white is not a joke. That there is nothing wrong with wearing the same shoes every day. Explain to him or her that a used backpack carries the same dreams as a new one... Please teach them not to exclude anyone for "being different" or not having the same possibilities as one. Explain to them that teasing hurts... and that they go to school to LEARN, NOT to compete. YOU AND I ARE WORTH THE SAME! EDUCATION BEGINS AT HOME.. Our differences are something to be celebrated not be be bullied or ridiculed.
