Web Scoop:
As part of his "To This Day" project, spoken word poet Shane Koyczan highlights how the memories of violence in school can echo forever throughout a person's life in a video poem. We've shared this animated poem on our website as part of Pushed Around, our series on bullying.

We all want children to be empathetic. But is there a way teachers and caregivers can ensure empathetic behavior? witf is hosting a workshop to discuss the value of empathy and how to cultivate the conditions that nuture empathy in our homes and classrooms. Find out how to RSVP for this workshop here.

To a certain extent, worries and fears are a normal part of growing up, and are even a protective mechanism. As parents, we help our kids learn to manage these fears by reassuring them and giving them tools to cope. Six Children and No Theories blogger Lisa Lawmaster Hess recommends several resources for managing worry.
