How Can You Help Your Child When They are a Victim of Bullying

 by Leah Campbell

Nothing brings out the mama (or papa) bear in parents quite like learning someone has been hurting your child. In an instant, all reason goes out the window and we become determined to do whatever it might take to protect our little cub.

That instinct is exactly why most parents who learn their child is being bullied have to initially resist the urge to go out and bully the little jerk that is hurting their child right back.

Having that urge is normal.…

The secret of the morning

I'm going to tell you a secret:



I've mentioned before that I am a morning person, and it is true: I am usually at my best in the morning. My alarm goes off, I get out of bed and my brain starts buzzing about the day I am going to have.…

Alert: Your child missed an assignment today

I know what my son's homework is: I know about the spelling assignments and the online math homework and the reading comprehension sheets and all the additional projects. I know all of this, of course, because my son's teacher sends notes - both physical and over email - on a very regular basis.…

Remembering the person you were in high school

A few months ago we took our son to the local high school to watch a robotics competition. In addition to the robotics, he loved seeing the older students and spent some time talking about how large the school was and what he would learn there.…

Becoming the teacher's pet (when you are a parent)

Right before Valentine's Day, I received several brightly colored pieces of paper letting me know that parents were invited into the classroom to secretly decorate their child's desk for February 14.…

No time like the present

My son is doing his math homework on the computer. Today's lesson centers on the clock. He dutifully types in the time that each clock face represents. Since he is pretty good at this, he whizzes through all the questions.…

Your child's working week

I am a working Mom. I put in more than 40 hours at the office and come home to household responsibilities. I take my son to cub scouts and swimming lessons, and I go through spelling words with him at night. I would like to think that our lives are pretty typical of a family with two working parents.…

The technology of sleep

During winter break, my son woke up every morning at around 6 am in an insanely cheerful mood and ready to tackle whatever fun the day would bring. (Mind you, this is the same little bear who grumbles and growls every other morning when his alarm goes off around 7 am.) Although I enjoyed the morning company, after five days of this I asked why he was able to…

The thing about girls and math...

When I was in fifth grade, I missed a few days of school due to sickness and when I came back, I had some trouble getting up to speed on fractions. They were hard and awful and I cried at school one day because I thought that I would never understand them. And I am pretty sure that in that moment, I decided I wasn't good at math.…

Unpacking at the end of the day

My son has a few responsibilities when he gets home from school, which includes unpacking his book bag.



This is a relatively simple gig, and yet, it can go so very, very wrong. I have often come home from work to find his bag still packed on the couch or his things scattered in a few locations. Don't get me…

Mom Meltdown

It’s 4:20am and I just walked my Husband to his car.  As he starts the car to leave to catch his vanpool, I start crying.  “I can’t lose my baby!”  No, I’m not pregnant…I’m referring to my 17-year-old Daughter.  She is a Junior in High School, and this…

Getting a call from the teacher

During our parent-teacher conference with my son's teacher, my husband and I did our best to ask the questions we had about homework, behavior, areas of improvement and strengths to develop for our son. (We did not ask about the brightly colored emails.) We did make sure that she knew that if there were any problems, we wanted…

The words that are off-limits

When my son was in preschool, he came home with the announcement that one of his friends got in trouble at school for saying a bad word. As nonchalantly as I could, I asked what the bad word was. As quietly as possible, he said, "hate."…

What do you mean "lockdown"?

My son came home from school talking about how they had a lockdown drill. I didn't know what that was. He explained the procedure they followed to lock themselves in a classroom and to stay out of sight "in case a burglar or bad person" came into the school.…

Reading program in school

My son has fear in reading. The worst part of his school was reading. Well still it is. He said the teachers don't let them play all time, sometime he had to study too, so school isn't 100% good time pass.
Recently his school started a reading program. So, from now on everyday they give some books to the students to pic up according their choice and then take it at home. Every night parent's duty is to sit the kids with their given book and let them read by themselves unless…

Getting to know your child's teacher

This year, I am going to be better prepared.



In Kindergarten, I wasn't fully involved in the one (and only) parent-teacher conference I had with my son's teacher. I (somewhat naively) thought we would have more than one conference. But we didn't. And I missed my chance.…

Learning how to play at recess

Every evening at dinner I like to ask my son what he did at school. If I am lucky, I will ask the specific enough question to get him to tell me about an actual event that happened (instead of getting the "I don't know" or "it was good" stock answer). I love it when he tells me about his day, and it is worth it to figure out the right series of questions to get him to talk about it - suddenly a whole world of information will come out of…
