Caitlin is taken by surprise when Joshua reveals his feelings for her. As Caitlin sorts out her own feelings toward Josh the memory of the kiss she shared with Trick on the beach continues to invade her thoughts. Good thing she’ll never see Trick again or things could get complicated.

Anti Bully Awareness

There are lots of schools and organizations focus on anti bullying awareness activities during this time of year.  From the United Kingdom to the Unites States we can all agree that bullying in any form is unacceptable and should not be tolerated.  I remember seeing kids get picked on and bullied when I was in school.  I remember thinking how miserable they must feel to have to deal with that every day, but I didn’t have the courage to get involved and be an advocate for those other kids.  It’s never too early to talk to your children about bullying and what kids should do if they see it.  Don’t let your children be silent bystanders.  Let them know that they can tell the bully to stop and oftentimes that is all that is needed to alter the bully’s behavior.

We can teach our kids to have a different attitude about bullying and really make a difference in another child’s situation.  Today our children’s book, The Bee Bully, is being featured on the Kindle Fire Department.  I hope you will check it out either in kindle or paperback form and have a conversation with your kids about what bullying means and what steps they should take to stop it in it’s tracks.
