October is dedicated to anti-bullying month. But it really should be a whole year celebration. Bullying does no good to anyone.
Bullying starts off as innocent. Perhaps that person is trying to tease but it comes out wrong. Before too long, the bully feels powerful in a weird way and it continues. The person being bullied feels like the size of a pea and broken inside.
If you do not want your child to be a bully, think about how you talk to them and treat them. Do you make fun of them or tear them down? When they feel bad about themselves, they are more likely to go to school and make someone else feel terrible. The cycle continues.
Talk to children as soon as they begin pre school. Keep the conversation going all the way until they graduate high school. Be an example on how to treat others. Your children learn from you daily.
