Defeating the Culture of Bullying

Defeating the Culture of Bullying | bullying | Scoop.it

The common denominator of all types of bullying is a lack, or erosion, of empathy. Nurturing empathy, a potential that is present in almost all children, is therefore at the heart of interventions to reduce bullying. (Bazelon’s book is itself a model of empathy - not only for victims and their families, but also for the families of bullies, for kids who are wrongly accused, and for educators struggling to do the right thing, even when their responses are ineffective.)

 

In the end, Bazelon raises a larger question: What can we do, asparents, to nurture qualities of empathy and kindness in our children? How can we reduce the risk that they will get caught up in hurtful teen-age drama? How can we help them become “upstanders,” not bystanders, to meanness and cruelty?
