Modeling Kindness For Children Prevents Bullying

Without a doubt, children see and hear much more than adults realize. When children watch adults interacting with each other, it is their first glimpse into what is acceptable behavior.

When we are around children, but talking to adults:

  • Do we listen to others with compassion?
  • Do we change the subject when someone is incessantly gossiping?
  • Are we respectful and kind, regardless of whether they are a CEO or a janitor?

No one is perfect at relationships, but if we work hard to listen to friends and treat others with respect we will prevent bullying by modeling these pro-social behaviors for children. Not to mention, these positive behaviors will also help us to have more inner peace and healthy relationships!
