November 2010 - Vol. 7, ISS. 4  


Summer has ended and fall is here - kids are back to school "it's the most wonderful time of the year." This month, AboutFace would like to dedicate our E-newsletter to Teasing and Bullying. You will find under the "Resource" section of our website a list of beneficial tools that will help you teach your child the importance of self-acceptance and acceptance for each other.


This month we are introducing our "Volunteer Cares" section on the left hand side. Every issue will feature a different AboutFace volunteer. 


Below you will find the article "Teasing and Bullying on the School Yard" which focuses on why children tease and bully one another, and ways in which you can better prepare your child for any type of confrontation they made encounter.


You will also find an article by Randy Pielsticker, the AboutFace Camp Director, on this year's Camp Trailblazers and what he's got planned next!


Last but not least, don't miss Katrina Cichosz inspiring story. If Katrina has inspired you to share your story, just visit our website at and click on the "Share Your Story" button, or just click HERE. We'd love to hear your story!
