And so it begins. Name calling, teasing, whispers, dirty looks. Tricks of the bully business as old as the ages, and it is still as shocking and sad for all involved the day it begins for our kids. Bully behavior is happening earlier and earlier these days, with the help of the internet and social media, so how can we teach our kids how to prepare and handle this hurtful behavior from the start?

This week, Cyla explains a bit of how this started for her and shares some tips on how to cope from a kids perspective. We also tap into resources from our favs, A Kids Book About Bullying by Elizabeth Tom for more insight. Grown ups of girls can also learn how to apply real world techniques from the incredibly helpful book No More Mean Girls, written by child and adolescent psychotherapist Katie Hurley.

Grab your kids and listen in. Together, let’s remind them to treat others how they wish to be treated and that kindness really does make the world go ‘round.
