For some reason this episode is starting with no introduction with Erin talking to a kid named Adam about the school’s anti-bullying club. I still have a full sixty-one minutes of recording so not sure why that is happening. I will say that in theory an anti-bullying club is a good idea. However, in order for it to work, it needs to have several of the popular kids participating, and it needs to have a large number of kids overall. Aw, Adam is adorable. He is opening up on an online video journal about his bullying. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of kids at this meeting and they are all victims of bullying. They need a school counselor in this meeting. While giving these kids a place to talk, is great, what they need is some of the popular kids to come out and say bullying is not okay and to stop it when they see it. Adam, who started the group doesn’t want to share and stops going to the meetings that he started. He does make another video. He says he has been bullied since grade six. She is still being bullied and he is a sophomore in high school. He doesn’t feel like he can be the one to run the group because he can’t even stand up for himself. Erin goes to talk to Adam trying to get him to come to the group for support. Eriin encourages Adam to talk to the assistant principal, Mr. Ackerman about his issues. His plan is to talk to the guys coaches and have them handle the situation.
