Stopping bullying in a lunch bag
Interesting article in the Wall Street Journal about school lunch box notes.
Ms. Swanson, an associate professor of architecture at the University of Kentucky, likes to show her kids she loves them with art and notes. “You could probably psychoanalyze moms by the notes they leave in their kids lunches,” she says.
The lunch-box note used to be an occasional smiley face on scratch paper. Now it’s an elaborate fixture of the school cafeteria. Some kids complain when they don’t get a lunch note. Or they may compare lunch notes with friends. Parents hear about it when their efforts fall short.
I can’t help but think there’s some application here to bullying prevention, not only in lunch bags but on lunch trays, too.
