October is International Anti-Bullying Month

And I've been busy guest blogging about it.  Wednesday, October 25th two of my guest blogs were posted., a blog that deals primarily with adults who have been bullied, posted my blog about a 76-year-old who still remembers being bullied in elementary school. My blog also speaks about the definition and nature of bullying and cites Eaglebait as a resource. ( posted my blog about Eaglebait and what I am doing to work with the anti-bullying movement both locally and nationally.  I hope my blog-followers will pick up on these guests posts which are really entirely different from each other. Both blogs welcome comments.

My visit with Clemson professor, Dr Susan Limber, was both fun and productive. Dr. Limber is delightful to talk to (and she even bought me lunch at the lovely Seasons restaurant on the Clemson campus).  She provided me with several contacts directly involved in the anti-bullying effort, specifically the Olweus prevention program which she herself directs at Clemson's Institute on Family and Neighborhood Life.

Another bonus to our Clemson visit:  Two weeks with the grand-girls and their mom (our daughter) and dad.  Lots of action going on there with a 4-year old and a 2-year old in constant motion.  Highlight:  The 4-year-old leaned in and whispered in my ear, "Granny, you're my best friend!"
