Vivid, Accurate Portrayal of School Pains
30 May 2019 | by matthewtessnearSee all my reviews

This episode shows the fear that follows around a young grade school student. No matter the age, gender, race or location, bullying is a present danger. I wanted to hug young Earn in this episode. I was fearful he would get laughed at by the whole school or beat up. I was bullied in school, so much it affects me now in my 30s. The trauma from experiences in third grade and beyond formed much of my anxiety and depression that I'm just now starting to fight back from. I talk a lot about that in my memoir, 'Eating Me Alive: How Food, Faith and Family Helped me Fight Fear and Find Hope.' And because of that, this episode was so special for me and for all of us in relating the dangers of youth.
