Even If Your Kid’s Not a Bully, We Bet She Knows One
It often seems the only time most of us worry about bullying is when it happens to one of our kids – or when something goes deeply wrong with someone else’s kid, as happened recently in South Hadley, MA, where 15-year-old Phoebe Prince hanged herself.
According to the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, surveys indicate that as many as half of all children are bullied at some time during their school years, and at least 10% are bullied on a regular basis. The Junior Leaguestake this problem seriously. In fact, supporting the welfare of our children has been a central focus across our 109-year-history.
