In our classes we are talking with our students about Respect and Self-control. We do this nearly every class. As the understanding of proper behavior grows the chances of bully issues decreases. Believe it or not most kids want to do the right thing! The more they are reminded what that is the more they will try to accomplish it. The more they see success and understanding the more their confidence builds. This creates better decision making and in turn safer kids. This practice helps protect, and may even save, both the bully and the bullied from long lasting damages of bullying. Sounds great right? Now can we kick bully butt or should we learn more?
