New in School Chapter 1 Page 12
If you’re happy (’cause it’s Wednesday) and you know it, clap your hands! New Albert the Alien!
Gerty and Albert have a serious conversation about bullying – a subject that is highly prevalent in schools. Heck, I was bullied (and even did some bullying myself, I’m sad to say) back in my elementary school days. And now days, with cyber bullying and crazy stuff like that, it’s very difficult to deal with bullies in a proactive and productive manner.
We have a lot of fun with bullying in these stories – with Wally being a main character and the school bully – but if you are being bullied, I highly encourage you to talk to you teacher and / or parents about it. A good rule of thumb is to be kind and patient with everyone you meet.
Have you ever been bullied? What are some ways you’ve dealt with bullying, or been told are good ways to deal with bullying?
