Heatherly Walker/Yarn Yenta’s book!
And from Robin:
- an alternative view point on the Walk Out Not Up movement. In most cases of child on child violence, it is the bully that kills their classmate and that is generally true for the young school shooters as well. Even in Columbine, the shooters were more often the harassers than they were the victims.
- Here is a rebuttal to the Walk-Up concept
- Also, for some of the kids who are shy/awkward/different, Walk Up can backfire pretty badly.
- The Choose Kindness movement (along with reading the book Wonder ) is much better for bullying.
- from Anna G: Wet nursing
even some quilts with 1×1 in squares!

- Amethysts in Nova Scotia
