  • Say NO to Bullying!

    pizap-com14127846778291-jpgDid you know that October is Anti-Bullying Month or Bullying Prevention Month!

    I know many homeschoolers started homeschooling because of a bullying issue in public school. The boards and groups are full of kids who have had a bullying issue at school. It makes me so sad to read about them.


    My own son was no exception. We became accidental homeschoolers in Fall 2008 due to him being jumped from behind at school by 2 kids. He is a tall, big kid and at the time....only 1 teacher in the whole school was as tall as him. He defended himself, all kids were sent to the principal's office. The 2 kids who started it got off without punishment. My son was suspended for defending himself. It was the last straw and we became homeschoolers! Never looked back!

    Bullying has become such an issue, though I do think it was ALWAYS an issue. Think back to when we were growing up. There was always 1 kid who was the one to avoid, he or she was the school bully. Picking on the younger and weaker or different kids.

    Now, we have cyber bullies, physical bullies, hazing, and pretty much any kind of bullying you can imagine.
    Nobody should be bullied, EVER.

    We are all different. We are all unique. There is no NORMAL when it comes to people and there shouldn't be. That is what makes the world go around.

      Just curious, has anyone ever experienced bullying in a homeschool co-op, or homeschool group that offers classes? We were members for over 9 years of a homeschool group that offered classes and had to leave because of the bullying.

    Feel free to ask about Purdue!

    My kids loved their dual credit classes. Only my son took an AP class, and that was online. Everything else was taken at a Purdue satellite campus near us.
