Create the safe place you desire for your children starting from the HOME and not schools, be real!
The notion that we create a safe environment for all, pardon me, is lame! Parents should take the FULL RESPONSIBILITY in making their children feel loved and accepted, it is not the public worker's responsibility, I beg to differ!!!! Ever heard of the adage "Charity begins from the home"? Yes it is important to show love ( I support that ANY DAY), but doesn't mean we have to condone certain behaviors that are not being addressed from a young age. Parents- wake up!!!!! It's our individual responsibilities! To be fair, I personally have a family member with the same situation, we are not going to blame others and force others to accept? No way! I can relate to questions like "if this were your child, how would you feel?", "Would you like to be treated a certain type of way"?...Yes, I can very much relate....however, let's not be afraid to face behaviors at home and be nonchalant about them, even when there's nothing you feel you can do, teach them self-worth! It is the same with anger issues, hatred for one another, strife, mischief, stealing, fighting and all social errors we see today. I'm sorry, but THE SCHOOL'S JOB IS FOR FORMAL EDUCATION...let's not encourage this!
