OHEL is a social services organization that has created a terrific anti-bullying program. Here is a wonderful look at how to combat bullying in your school. One of the important points that is made in the video is something that I have said for along time: It is nonsense that society needs to worry about the bully's self-esteem. It has been proven that the problem that bully's have is a complete lack of empathy. Bully's actually think quite highly of themselves. Listen to that section of the video and try to get your school to watch as well. Remind the school that it is our bullied children that need protection, self-esteem therapy, support and protection, not the perpetrators of their torment.
Until next time,
