Teach this to your kids young.
Great exercise for all my teacher friends! “A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following assignment. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, but not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it t…hey’re sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they’re sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying!!”
