The only way to stop bullying is to raise our kids NOT to be bullies. Teachers and parents are using our products as SEL tools. Many Head Start programs are using Genna and Russ, the Generous Kids in their classrooms as part of their anti-bullying curriculum. If we don't raise our kids to be kind, compassionate, generous people, the cycle of bullying will continue...and more kids will die.

I agree that bullying is often based on gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, appearance or disability. I also think bullying exists because not many students know about diversity or how to interact properly with people who has different background, culture or race.

I think it is really important to educate students in school about diversity. The teachers can teach or expose them when the students are in elementary or middle school, because that is when they can learn and accept better than when the students are older.

I liked your post! Thank you.

It's a chain reaction. The bully will hurt the victim. The bully will get a bad reputation and the victim will be hurt inside and/or out. Teachers should inform everyone about this and it could very well change the bully's mind by making them relize that they're bullying themselves as well.

We also use the I messages in our school. It's been a great tool for all kids. Not only does it help with bullying, it helps the children learn to effectively communicate their needs, feelings, and actions.
Another great resource that our principal bought for every classroom, was the book One, by Kathryn Otoshi. It's an amazing book to use with all levels of elementary school aged children from pre-k through sixth grade to talk about standing up to bullies not only for yourself, but for others, including the bully.

This is mostly a K-6 solution:
A powerful tool teachers can use with bullies is to take the bully and victim away from other students and encourage the victim to say to the bully, "I feel _______ when you ______, and I would like you to _________. The bully is not allowed to interrupt, and when they respond they are not allowed to question the victim's feelings. The teacher explains to the bully that they can control their own actions, but they have no control over how others feel. The conversation can continue from there. Since it often takes place during the students' free time, they are both motivated to come to a resolution quickly.

I believe the most effort should be put into teaching kids how to effectively respond to bullies because they will encounter bullies throughout their lives. Good strategies include ignoring mild bullying, deliberately freezing the bully out of your sphere, enrolling the support of friends and authorities, having some fun with humor at the bully's expense, calmly standing your ground, etc. If enough kids are inoculated against bullies, there will be fewer bullies.
