Amanda Todd and sexual assault

Some facebook friends linked this blog about “What it’s like being a teen girl” that discusses sexual harassment and assault.  What stood out especially was that boys aged 12-17 are the most likely to commit sexual assault.

So then I caught up on reading about Amanda Todd, and watched her video (at the bottom, “My story…”), which made me cry.

I think I’m going to have to do more real-life lessons in the classroom.
