No Bullying As parents, teachers, and advocates, we have a vital role to play in preventing bullying and protecting our children.

I just read a great article that discussed some very practical things we can do to help our kids understand what bullying is, to keep the lines of communication open, and to model kind and respectful behavior for our children.

But it’s the fourth item on the list that blew me away. The article reminded us that we need to encourage our kids to do what they love. Taking part in activities, interests, and hobbies they like builds confidence and pairs them up with friends who have the same interests. And that helps to protect kids from bullying. Brilliant!
