Well I wanted to just share some advice on Bullying for those of you that have school aged children. A few years ago my son was in first grade and he really like going to school until one day a boy that was a year older than him started to pick on him. My son was terrified, he was picked on every time he went on the playground, or on the bus, even after school. The bully would call him names, laugh at him, and push him around. My son’s father and I spoke to the teachers and even the principal yet the bullying did not stop. My son would cry because he did not want to go to school, he hated the thought of school, and that was just the most heartbreaking thing to see as a parent. You feel so helpless, but we consistently had talks to our son and encouraged him to stand up for himself, to be strong, bold and not to be afraid because everyone should be treated equally and not be bullied by someone else.
Bullying is very hard on children, it breaks their self-esteem, crushes their hopes and makes them feel shunned from the rest of the world. As parents/adults/friends or just anyone in society it is our duty to be spokesmen & women against bullying. We need to be there and raise the awareness of what bullying can do to children and how we can prevent and stop it from happening. I think that if more people spoke out against bullying and punishments were put in place for bullies it could drastically lower the number of incidents. Countless children have commited suicide because they were being bullied, and that is unacceptable.
“I am Jack” is a children’s book written by author Susanne Gervay, the book is basically about a boy named Jack who loves going to school until another kid starts calling him “butthead” and then the other kids start calling him that too. It takes you through the life of a child being bullied and how he deals with it and overcomes it. I think that this book will definitely help children understand what bullying is and how to overcome it/deal with it/ and help others who are dealing with being bullied.
I wish I had this book a few years ago to read to my child, but I have it now to read to my youngest child and my niece. Every parent, teacher and student should read this book. It should be read together and discussed. It is so simple and yet so common.

By the end of kindergarten, most children can recognize and write upper and lower case letters. Most kindergartners can read some words and simple books. Kindergartners learn that writing goes from left to right. Kindergartners can understand more than just the plot of a story
Encouraging Your Kindergartner
- Let your child read the words and offer help only when it’s needed
- Let your child “share” the reading with you
- Keep reading sessions short
- Encourage your child to track the print with a finger, pointing to each word as she/he says it.
- Don’t limit reading to just books
Reading can be made a part of your childs life by encouraging them to read at any point in the day example: at the grocery store they can help find items on the grocery list, while in the car they can read the street signs as they go by. If you are out shopping they can help you read the isle names and clothing racks. Learning to read should always be encouraged and nurtured by you. Be an example to your child and always remember to get appropriate age leveled reading for your you young one.
Here is a list of Kindergarten age appropriate books that will definitely help your young one grow in their reading.
All of the above books were Created in consultation with a language expert, this book is part of an engaging new phonics-based series, especially written to help your child learn to read. Not only is the story great fun, it also takes into account recent research on the most effective ways of teaching reading. Stephen Cartwright’s delightful illustrations complement the text and are designed to stimulate further interest. Fold out pages add to the enjoyment.
