Bullying of children is a call to take action

Navjot Kaur, author of the children’s books A Lion’s Mane and Dreams of Hope, gives an account of her son being bullied in Kindergarten:

We came home and I held it together the whole way. Once we cuddled and I reassured him when he asked, “You going to tell [boy’s name] to say sorry to me?” I went into another room and cried. I’m not sure why I felt so defeated for that tiny moment but I did. But after talking to my sister who now works for a non profit lobbying for change for such issues, I gained my strength and prepared next steps.

Read the full story on her blog, wherein she also describes how she pivoted her son’s traumatic experience into an opportunity to educate.
