Being a kid seems so easy when you're looking back on it. When you think about the bills, the relationship issues, your job, making sure everyone has enough it seems a little overwhelming. We had plenty of years to prepare for it didn't we?
If you're fortunate enough to look around the dinner table and see smiling faces, if your kids are the lucky ones that make it through the day without being picked on, bullied, teased, or even worse.. take a moment to be thankful. It's not easy for everyone. Please take a moment to watch this video from a very brave kid.
Listen to your kids.
Listen when they talk about their friends.
Listen when they talk about how they feel.
Listen when they are outside and don't know you can hear them.
It might not be your child hurting... but it's someones child. It's our job as adults, parents, aunts, uncles, teachers, and role models to look out for them.
