The statistics are all over the news and the internet. It's mind boggling to see so many young children taking their own lives due to bullying. There are pages and pages of similar stories and worst of all, bullying and suicide are on the rise. It is a serious problem and no one should take it lightly. Unfortunately, only 20-30% of children who have been bullied tell an adult and when they do, you need to be prepared to deal with it correctly. Bullying should not be a part of growing up and needs immediate attention. We need to learn everything there's to know about bullying to educate ourselves and be able to set a good example for others.
AS PARENTS WE NEED TO REMAIN OPEN AND FLEXIBLE, LEARN WHAT WE NEED TO LEARN SO WE CAN LEAD OUR NEXT GENERATION TOWARDS A MORE HUMANISTIC, UNITED, AND INTERCONNECTED PATH.
"When you know better you do better" Maya Angelou. To help stop bullying, we need to start with our own family, school and community. First and foremost we should stop threatening, manipulating, hitting, ridiculing, belittling or hurting our children and everyone else around us. If we want our children to learn to deal with conflicts with respect and in a peaceful manner, we need to be willing to be respectful and talk out differences peacefully with the people around us. We need to invite diversity into our lives and treat everyone equally, with kindness and respect. Leading by example is the most affective way to teach our children anything we want them to learn.
