Eating the greens that are used in southern cooking is a good way for us to get the calcium that makes our bones strong. Collard greens, turnip greens, mustard greens, kale, and okra are excellent calcium sources; plus they provide many vitamins.

Do you know the difference between teasing and bullying? Teasing is reciprocal, which means that both people are participating. For example, if one person calls another student lame and then the other student calls him goofy; and then they both laugh about it, that is considered teasing. Teasing becomes bullying when it is one-sided and the bully makes a choice to harm someone else with their words or actions.
