"Don't Laugh at Me" is the name of a program being provided to children's camps accredited by the American Camping Association. It is the gift of Peter Yarrow, a former camper and counselor, who was also with the folk group Peter, Paul & Mary. The point of the project is to help children overcome habits of ridicule and sarcasm and to be kinder to one another.
"All children who bully or hurt other children, as well as their targets, can get stuck in these patterns of passing on their own hurt to others for many years," says Laura Parker Roerden, author of the program's guide and an outdoor education instructor. "They need caring adults to help them break out of these roles."
