I can’t STAND mean girls. Those fake, shallow, conniving girls in the movie, Mean Girls, make me sick. The sad part is, mean girls are real. And they’re practically everywhere, beyond the playground.

In a recent Ask Mom OnlineRI.com column, “She’s a Bully,” I share advice to help kids deal with bullies. One key piece of advice? Don’t be afraid to tell.

The surprising thing that came from this? After fellow blogger, Sharon Couto of Momgenerations.com, read my column, she was reminded of an experience in high school where she was the VICTIM of a bully. Check out her personal story here where she begs all victims to TELL.

Thank you, Sharon, for opening your heart and sharing your story. May we all learn from it.
