Talking to our kids about bullying isn’t always easy. Sometimes kids don’t want to share information, and sometimes parents don’t like to talk about their own painful experiences.
It may seem counterintuitive, but delving into fictional books about bullying is a great springboard for meaningful conversations. Great books demand that we delve into the psychological makeup of the bullied and the bully. We can discuss scenarios from plots and problem-solve with our kids, and it’s all safe when it’s in the confines of a book.
Hopefully you will find them helpful for encouraging conversations that will last a lifetime.
