I can't think of a title for this.
A teacher was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform.
She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and
look at how scarred and dirty it was.
She then told them to tell it they’re sorry.
Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it.
That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they’re sorry, but the scars are there forever.
