Q. My daughter is only seven-years-old and she is already being bullied. I thought that kids didn’t start this until middle school. She is being teased on the bus for everything from her backpack to her clothes. Almost every day she comes home crying, and now she does not want to ride the bus anymore. What can I do to help her stand up for herself?
The panelists began with some questions of their own.
Like many teens in the 1960s, when Richard “Rick” Levy first saw the Beatles, he was inspired to start his own band.
But unlike most youths, Levy went on to not only play guitar in various rock ‘n’ roll bands, but also to manage some of the era’s biggest pop-rock artists, including Herman’s Hermits, Tommy Roe, Freddy Cannon, Jay & the Techniques, The Tokens and Bo Diddley. He is now the manager and a guitarist for Memphis legends The Box Tops.
