There are those moments when you fear that the lessons you are trying to teach your children about life may not be sinking in.
Then there are those other moments when you learn from the rest of the world about how your child is teaching them.
You've read here before about bullying and my feelings about it - when it comes to kids and when it comes to adults.  You may have read the stories about bullying situations and my problems with the schools before.
My daughter knows first-hand how it feels to be on the receiving end.
Her school implemented Rachel's Challenge this year and my daughter has taken it very seriously.
When her teacher asked them to write an acrostic poem using the word CHARACTER, above is what she came up with.
Her teacher was impressed and wrote a commendation and sent her to the office to show the principal.
The next day I got a call from the assistant principal about how proud they were of her and how they were brainstorming ideas on what to do with it next.
My next project is to make a wall hanging with this on it - 
talk about words to live by...
