I knew that, for whatever reason, she was becoming a bully to others. I knew that somehow it had to stop -- and stop now. I knew if I did not address this now, it would get worse the older she became. I knew I could not deny this problem. I knew I could not protect her because she was the one in the wrong. And I knew I needed to do this in the most loving and caring way.
Solution: GO GET SOME DANG GROWNUPS for lunch and recess. Put them EVERYWHERE. Call them “social skills ambassadors” or something else fancy.
Because humans aren’t perfect and children can’t possibly know what they haven’t been taught, it is entirely plausible that even the best kids are unknowing contributors to the bullying problem at large. THIS is the secret spot where the solution lives.
