Bullying is one of those problems that has affected our nation for hundreds of years, but which is only finally getting addressed in a constructive way. Perhaps you were bullied as a young child and are still struggling to get over it. Or worse: maybe your child is currently getting picked on or even attacked by bullies and is feeling the strain and emotional trauma that is associated with these actions.
If you fall under these descriptions, it is worth checking out this “Kids and Bullying” enhanced DVD. It is an ABC News program that takes a deep look into the epidemic that forces over 160,000 children to stay home from school every day, for fear of being picked on or even physically attacked. Bullies will go after children for any number of reasons, including simply looking or acting in ways that don't conform to their ideas of acceptable behaviors.
In this hard-hitting look at bullying, Chris Cuomo meets with various people affected by this problem to get to the root of it and to find a solution. For example, he interviews parents and children who are experiencing bullying, discusses anti-bullying tactics pursued by lawmakers, and even directly confronts those who are bullying or allowing it to happen.
While bullying is a problem that will likely impact future generations, Cuomo does point out a few constructive methods that are being used to defeat this practice. One if the formation of the Alliance School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Here, children learn about the effects of bullying and practice anti-hate and anti-bullying methods in a constructive and positive way.Kids and Bullying (Enhanced DVD)
