Have You Seen The Sign?

I was at a restaurant the other day after church and noticed I could not read the score of the football game, but my son rattled it off like it was nothing.  I then realized that I am getting old, and that I need glasses.  What has made you say, "I am getting old?"

Times Have Changed

Dalton, 8 year old, called to talk about being bullied.

It's unfortunate that our children will get bullied at school, whether it's about their appearance or dress, their academic ability or hobbies, a disability or just the fact that they're the new kids in town. Here are things parents can do to strengthen their children before the bullying starts, convince them to tell parents if a verbal or physical attack occurs, and keep them safe. 

Start early. Does your child understand the difference between thinking, feeling and action?

Develop a sense of self. A sense of self isn't about children feeling good all the time or getting a trophy for showing up to every soccer game. It's teaching a child to have core sense of sturdiness so her sense of who she is isn't defined by the whim of her peers.

Encourage courageous behavior. Bullying flourishes in school communities when most of the community stays silent while the bullies attack.

Look in the mirror. Become aware of your own behavior, because your children will copy you.

StopBullying.gov is a great resource to help understand and stop bullying.

Bullying is different now than it was when I was going up.  Hope this helps!
