Bullying is not a subject we take lightly in our home. In fact, we talk about it often: What can we do to eliminate feelings of inadequacy? What makes us special? Why would someone be motivated to attack our special qualities? How can we empower each other to appreciate the beauty in us? Who are our allies in situations that make us feel inadequate or uncomfortable?
Like Sunne, Big Sister has had to work through her own journey to appreciating her hair that is different from her classmates. She was touched that this story's protagonist came to the same conclusion that she did... each of us is different for a reason.
