All across the country, we're hearing and seeing incidents that involve bullying at an alarming rate. As a parent of children coming from a hostile environment, like divorce, I have a fairly different set of responsibilities in addition to the traditional safe-guarding of our children.
Confession: I was an A-hole kid. I gave into the monkey mentality and harassed another person who everyone decided was a loser -- even our teacher. Consequences were only mentioned in passing after that kid killed himself. Watch the Karen Huff Klein video with your kids. Show them what bullying looks like. Teach them.
