Thankyou so much to everyone that commented on my last post. It really helped me to write the words, and share them here. Your words of support made me so glad that I did.
Yesterday was an emotional day. I had a big cry when talking about it with a friend over coffee and then I had a meeting with her classroom teacher. Another teacher has become involved now and it seems that this is helping the situation. We are trying to keep everyone talking about it, because it is not going to go away by itself. Following this, the ballerina and I had a big cuddle and a big talk about feelings and bullies and coping strategies. Big life lessons indeed!
More creative spaces, hopefully less emotional here!
