    Great article on bullying and preventing it. Especially the part about keeping the kids busy with more productive activity because it often comes from boredom. Hopefully we can get the schools to provide more activity based programs during recess.

      walk away. i’ve met a lot of bullies over my lmtefiie, and the best way to handle them is to either 1) ignore them, or 2) kill them with kindess . this last one really freaks them out, so its a personal favorite of mine.when he calls you a name, reply sweetly well, that’s a shame that you think i’m [whatever]. i think you’re a wonderful person . you don’t have to mean it, but say it like you do. he won’t know what to say!also, tell your mom or dad! you shouldn’t have to brawl at school. school is for learning and hanging out with friends, not for watching over your back waiting to fight. good luck!

    The only thing you can do to help bully-proof your child is to encourage friendships. Start early in helping your child build social skills and make friendships and teach your children to express themselves clearly yet tactfully. The idea of my children being harmed or lost is not something anyone wants to consider. For further knowledge on how you can protect your children.

    Children and young adults see a world in the media where bullying and name calling is the norm. They may hear their own parents express themselves in ways that are mostly name calling where they are repeating this norm without even realizing it. What is bullying a deeper symptom of? In what ways do we intervene with the bullies so that more kids who might otherwise choose to bully get a very clear message about the actions that will be taken if they make that choice?
    If a bully is not stopped when he or she is a child or young adult they will probably go on to bully spouses, family members, colleagues, their own children. A self-perpetuating cycle that we all share responsibility for stopping. My heart goes out to any child who is victimized by this destructive behavior.
