OnlineCollegeCourses.com is a resource to help learners gather information and make the best choices for their on-line education. But last week the site listed twenty methods schools are using to combat bullying. Some are extremely innovative, such as incorporating babies into the classroom to encourage compassion. Other include A Thin Line, an iPhone app for people being bullied, and music—using catchy tunes to teach young students about the dangers of bullying.
For the complete listing of the twenty techniques, go to the Online College Courses website. There are some wonderful suggestions there. Eventually, we might not need to teach our children to get in the bully’s face and yell, “F*** YOU, YOU MISCREANT!”
Well, one can always hope.
