Working as a teacher assistant with 5-7 year old children, I was so shocked to see how they fought and bullied each other in the playground.

So I wrote this poem for them, and the headmaster allowed me to read it to the children at assembly. This poem encouraged the children to be more loving and kind to each other.

This poem is from my children's poetry book.

Teach Me!



Together we stand! I will not pinch you; I will not bite you.

I will not punch you. I will not kick you; I will not call you names. I will not fight with you.

I will smile with you.

I will play with you.

I will share with you. I will be kind to you; I will love you.

I will be your forever friend.
