The Project Cornerstone book that is being read in your child's classroom this month is My Secret Bully by Trudy Ludwig. In this story, a girl named Katie bullies her close friend Monica, making her feel unwelcome and isolated from her friends. Monica's mom notices she is suddenly having stomachaches, and asks if something is going on at school. Her mom listens to Monica, which leaves Monica feeling loved, appreciated and accepted. With the support and advice of her mother, Monica learns to reclaim her personal power.
This book addresses the issue of Relational Bullying...subtle emotional bullying including "under the radar" actions like spreading rumors, intimidating and humiliating, excluding and ignoring.
