I have to vear off  my no red 40 artificial colors, etc.  blog to no bully talk.  I am sick of the silence.  As a parent of 3 school age kids I am very concerned about the effects of bullying.  It is a growing worry in schools and on playgrounds across the country.  What, as a parent can we do?  PLENTY.
Listen to your kids.  Watch your kids.  and most of all, trust your instincts.

Mom Dad Uncle Aunt Brother Sister Teacher Friend...watch the children around you.  You may be able to make a BIG difference.  Bullying is becoming a lifestyle and we need to put a stop to it. PRONTO.

Don't be afraid to speak up.  There is no place for bullying and to not do anything only enables it.  What kind of bully policy does your school have?
