Horse: A turtle teaches children to have a voice against school bullying

The turtle sends lessons to students of all ages against . This is a book that wrote a tutor in Kavala… The little and sensitive Vilma turtle in the role of a child who is subjected to school bullying, the bully and proud hole nut in the role of the perpetrator, the lady wolf as a teacher, the parents of the little Vilma who are on her side and the wise owl who as another expert attempts to give the hole nut to understand his mistakes are the “priorists” of the new violin of the tutor Stefania Papika “A change for Vilma”. In the book, animals in the small forest of history that the educator tells so glaringly take on a teaching role. They communicate with young children in order to approach a problem of modern Greek society, which in some cases tends to take uncontrolled stretching. On the colorful pages of the story of Stefania Papika, school bullying or bulling does not have the cruelty, as it is reflected in television images and children’s descriptions. However, it carries the same concern, the same distress, the same fear, the same anguish that the turtle of history experiences. At the same time, the fairy tale explains to the little reader and the behavior of the perpetrator, examining the reasons that led the hole nut to disturb little Wilma. And it’s this unexpected development of the fairy tale that changes the data in the lives of the two central heroes of the small forest. How the little child will get a voice In the particularly tasteful and well-known fairy tale “A change for Wilma”, released a month ago by the publications K. & M. STAMULI in illustration Rigo Illustration, the great change in the life of the little turtle comes when because of her father’s work they are forced to move from their home, located in the great forest, and at the same time go to a new school. Little Wilma is an introverted turtle who wears red glasses, has a very positive character and makes new friends at the new school she goes to. However, as a new person she is the easy victim for the chief woodpecker, who does not miss an opportunity to make her life difficult and sometimes unbearable. Until the truth is revealed. To ask whether a child in infancy can still understand bullying, Stefania Papika is unequivocal: “At the age of five we can teach a child to speak, to have a voice, not to be afraid when an incident of school bullying occurs to him. So, at twelve, when he finds himself in a similar difficult situation not to silence, not to act passively, but to speak, to react, to hear his voice. Because only then will the solution that is necessary come.” Very important is the communication between parents and children Speaking at APE-APE, the active tutor from Thessaloniki, wife and mother of two children, stresses that “the communication parents have with children is of crucial importance for the character they will form. On how close parents are to their children depends on how they will react to their peers, if children fall victim to school bullying and if they will have the comfort of talking to parents and sharing the problem with them.” Although the book was ready since 2018, it remained in the drawers of Stefania Papika’s office and was only released this year. She estimates that in these six years that were mediated by his writing, Greek society marked some very harsh events that caused her to be troubled and most important to be sensitive to the issue of school bullying and intimidation in general in every aspect of our lives. The problem must not become a mountain “Our children live in a harsh society, I think that in recent years the reckless and uncontrollable use of technology has increased their aggression” stresses Mrs. Papika and continues: “most of the time, parents and teachers are unaware of what is happening at school or outside it. Here is the critical turning point. It is important for parents to devote quality time to children, to actively care about their everyday lives and what they are concerned about. The increased needs of work and the many demands of life keep parents away from children and this has a price sometimes that everyone pays.” “Every single animal in the fairy tale has its own character,” points out Mrs.Papika and each animal represents a human role not far from the reality of modern life. Animals are closer to the psychology of children and this helps to better understand meanings. In addition, children are identified through fairy tales and songs, so messages are easier to receive. The important thing that children need to understand through the fairy tale is that for all problems there are solutions as long as they share them with their parents. Only then will we manage not to become the mountain problem. In addition, the message goes through that even the woodpecker can change, if one understands why it behaves in this aggressive way.”
