Are You Raising A Bully?

Bullies are made, not born. Don’t allow yourself to fall into the “kids will be kids” trap to rationalize hurtful, mean-spirited, or destructive behavior. Your kids need you to give them a clear understanding of what is healthy and how to manage their emotions. They will take your lead. One of the best ways to teach them how to deal with conflict is to be a positive role model as you manage through your frustration, anger, and disappointment. Make it clear that It is NEVER okay to humiliate or demean with words or actions–no matter how frustrated or angry you are. Your leadership is crucial to raise kind, accepting, and respectful kids. Your kids are walking your walk!
