If you see kids being picked on or bullied, please step in and stop it, teach your kids to do the same. This could be YOUR child. I've seen first hand the effects that bullying has on a child. A former co-worker of mine came home to find her son hanging from a sheet off their 3rd floor apartment balcony several years ago. I've seen the devastation it leaves behind on the families and the needless suffering. There's NO NEED for it.
Teach your kids that bullying is wrong and will not be tolerated. Teach them to learn to accept others as they are and learn to get along, they might find a friend they never knew they could have. If your child says they're being bullied, take them seriously and get to the core of the problem. Take the steps you need to take as a parent to make it stop. Bullying isn't just a problem with children, adults are just as bad, if not worse. This includes physical, mental, and internet bullying. We all have feelings, we all get hurt and we all have insecurities at any age. Stop this behavior before it goes too far. Thank you Matt for this insight from a child's point of view.
