Lost, confused, and feeling like a part of her is missing, she relocates to Brooklyn, beginning a new journey as a jazz singer, poet and amateur cook. Things don't always go as planned, and she must deal with harsh new…

  • This Elementary School's Advice About Bullying Is Just Horrible

    18 Apr 2014 | 10:46 am
    A school in Lincoln, Neb. is under fire after sending fifth graders home with a pamphlet for how to deal with bullies. It was obviously well-intentioned, but it'd be difficult to dream up worse advice. For example: Treat the person who is being mean as if he is trying to help you: No matter how insulting or mean they may sound, be grateful and think they really care about you. Do not verbally defend yourself. Do not tell on bullies: The number one reason bullies hate their victims, is because the victims tell on them. Telling makes the bully want to retaliate. Tell an adult only when a real…
