Coffee Ministry Blog with the Perkins Family, weighs in on a bullying incident regarding a 14 year old student from a prestigious private school (December 2018) in the Philippines.

The youth in the Philippines are going through hormonal changes, dealing with interpersonal relationships, experiencing everyday growing pains, facing school pressures ... and more. The "expectation" to achieve "Highest Honors" and "High Honors" is over-the-top, leaving little room for anything other than studying.
