Don’t tease the redheaded kid with glasses. Don’t ridicule your overweight Geography teacher. Don’t poke fun at the girl with pimples. Don’t call the handicapped kid names. Don’t snigger at the boy who talks funny or laugh at the girl who wet her pants in class. Don’t pick on the kid who can’t kick, or the boy whose last name you can’t pronounce. And don’t be a bully.
Kindness, Compassion and Empathy aren’t subjects they teach at school, but I hope my kids and yours learn them anyway.
