Our next episode of Positively Living addresses an issue that over half of us have been the target of- Bullying.
10% of children and teens are victims of constant bullies
50% of children have been bullied.
1 out of 4 teachers will step in to stop bullying (http://www.nasponline.org/about_nasp/index.aspx The National Association of School Psychologists) .(Every teacher I know would step up to fight bullying!)
80% of male bullies will be arrested for a crime by age 24. 40% will be a multiple offender
Almost all serial killers claimed to have been a victim of bullies!

The victims are hurting. Victims are of any race, size, age, gender, religion/non-religion, political party or group of people!

The best person to stop bullying…..is the bystander.
If you don’t stand up for the bully’s victim, You are standing for the bully!

What do you do when you realize your child is the target of a bully? What if the autorities at the school, daycare or any place- do nothing to stop the bullying?
