Ever Wonder What Makes Bullies Bully?
We've reached the point, finally, where we all, for the most part, agree that there's a serious problem in our society today with bullying, especially (though, not exclusively!) with our young people. Great! Now comes the real work. How do you detect a bully when you see one? How do you know if your own child is a bully? You certainly can't be with them 24/7 and almost certainly have no idea of every single thing they do at school or in public when you're not around. Well, good news! There are characteristic that you can look for to help you detect and correct it. Some of the incidences of bullying that we're seeing today are nothing short of appalling. Lives are being lost because of it. Acknowledging, finally, that there is a serious problem is a great first step. Now, let's educate ourselves so we can start reversing the trend.
