Sometimes we have to stand up and be a voice for those who can't speak for themselves. It's easy to walk by and pretend you don't see something wrong but the true measure of a person's character comes when he or she takes a stand, even if it means standing alone.
Fighting for our children sometimes means we stand alone against society, against schools, against whatever it is that's creating a barrier to their success and well being.
Children need to know that we have their backs no matter what. Not only does this teache them loyalty, it teaches them resilience and self-advocacy too.
