I taught P.E. for 17 years. I told my students at the beginning of the year, if I caught them picking on someone in class, in the locker room or within my ear range, they would not be allowed to participate. Throughout the year I found at least one thing each child could do well and NO ONE was bullied.
Second part of story: I raised three children of my own. I told them if I ever heard of someone being bullied and they didn't step in, they would be in trouble with me. My children are all grown now, but I still have parents and students who tell me what a difference they made.
Let's teach children compassion for one another; it will make a better world!
