Where I talk about bullies and how they’re just normal kids after all.

TALKING POINTS:

  • Bullies are stupid. Wait a second, that’s not very nice.
  • Bullies are dumb. Oops, I did it again!
  • Bullies bully to feel strong. They’re just kids, and they probably don’t feel very big in their world.
  • Bullies bully to feel cool. They¬†sometimes do it just to get attention.
  • Bullies bully to feel better about themselves. Deep down inside, bullies are insecure people.

The bottom line is the bullies are regular kids. If you are a bully – or if you’re being bullied – talk about it with an adult.
