Parents must set example if we are to stop bullying

It’s been a while since we discussed bullying in schools. I hate to break it to everybody, but schools will never be able to stop bullying. The only way to stop bullying is for parents to teach their children basic manners, respect and kindness, which frankly a lot of parents aren’t doing. Too many adults are bullies themselves. No matter how hard law enforcement or teachers try, if parents don’t care to enforce kindness and manners, and explain empathy to their children, then nothing is going to improve.
