A Year of FHE // This is such a valuable list of great LDS resources that discuss bullying, how to recognize it, how to handle it, and how to report it. The list has descriptions of each resource and is divided into Children and Teens.  #lds #bullying #fhe
This year we discovered my 9 yo was being severely bullied at school. I was surprised because we had had very frank and thorough conversations about bullying and that our kids should always tell a trusted adult.

But it still happened.  I was completely heartbroken and felt I had failed her.  Since then I have compiled a list of great LDS resources that discuss bullying, how to recognize it, how to handle it, and how to report it.
