Danielle talks about her past with bullying, and why that worries her about her son starting kindergarten.
My oldest son heads to kindergarten in the first week of September. Which as a mother, brings me a whole new plethora of fear and anxiety. Especially considering for my first roughly eight years in public school I was picked on and bullied.
Yup, I was the little girl that was bullied by my classmates. Hell I still am bullied today, but that is just a whole other story in itself. If it wasn’t about my clothes from Bradlee’s, it was about my payless shoes. When the clothes were no longer an issue, it was my braces. When my braces weren’t an issue anymore it was the people I chose to hang around with. No matter what I couldn’t win until I somehow ended up hanging with the “cool” high school kids when I was in 8th grade.
