Children should be encouraged to share their innermost feelings on a consistent basis. By showing them unfeigned interest in every aspect of their lives, you will be instilling in them an unshakeable trust in you, as well as the belief that you, their parents, are there for them unconditionally.

And in this way you will gain the upper hand in fending off the long-range effects of any mental and emotional torment children can be so susceptible to. As research reveals, symptoms victims of bullying may display many years down the line range from low self-esteem and aggression to anger-management issues and difficulty in trusting others.

The special charm of these letters is their immediacy and authenticity of emotion and description.

Why is there such a steep learning curve for teachers? And what can we, as educators and community activists, do better in the educational system and keep first-year teachers in the job?
