As adults, we would have been through our fair share of petty bullying and also matured in the process. Today, our lives were so busy that we had long learned to put bullying, toxic or misaligned friends aside.
When this article came out, it resonated so much that I read it once and a second time with Z. I helped him to understand why some kids bully, why he should not take personal attacks to heart and how well he did in standing up for the weaker friends.
After all, a bully without followers was not powerful.
It seemed a lot to digest but I was impressed that my 7 year old understood this.
