About Megan

Megan hails from the United States – in a town just north of Atlanta, Georgia – and is the happily married mother of two small children she calls Bear and Ballerina. Megan has a passion for children, education, knowledge and equality … and most of the time, she tries to focus on the good in people and to appreciate and enjoy all the world has to offer. Her philosophy is based on two statements: “You can’t control how others behave; you can only control how you behave and be accountable to yourself” and “You get more flies with honey.”

After a long career in recruitment advertising and recruiting, she is presently going to graduate school with a hope of eventually teaching English to secondary school kids. She also works part-time for an ad. agency, and in those few moments between mothering, student-ing and working, she also participates on her neighborhood association board and writes occasional blog posts about the challenges of returning to school after a long career in the working world.

Interesting perspectives

Thank you very much, Jodie, RJ and Megan.

RJ - What a fascinating perspective you offer! I can't imagine how challenging it must have been for you, trying to manage the needs and behaviors and consequences for both boys, then to also learn that the schools -- theoretically people with expertise on dealing with children -- couldn't really offer much help. It's good to know that your aggressive son has learned empathy, which is the key step (from what I understand) to ending those behaviors. I wish you and both boys the best of luck in navigating the ongoing challenges, particularly for your son who is dealing with the psychological consequences.

Thank you

Anonymous, thank you for what you wrote. It's so reassuring to know others are out there who really get the full scope of the situation, how backwards it seems. I just wish this wouldn't happen to any child, anywhere. I believe as a society -- a global society -- we're better than that. Or we should be.
