I never knew there was friendship bullying and manipulation bullying. I am afraid both types of bullying has found it's way to my boards. A dear friend, who has several health issues, has been targeted. Mean Women ( Like in High School) have started a rumor around my friend and has caused her to loose over 100 group boards and been blocked by over 100 people. This must end. This is a make believe world. Can't we all stop following what the leader says and think for ourselves.

The Worry Box ~ Students can jot down worries and put them in this box. The counselor draws out the slips and knows which students to see and about what. Could also be done in small group or as a guidance lesson anonymously. Worry can be specific (state mandated testing) or generic. Be sure to emphasize that once the Larry is shut in the box & is carried out of the room, it's gone.
