WAYS TO STOP BULLYING - TECHNIQUES EXPLAINED BY DR. NEUFELD
INSTITUTE OF MARRIAGE AND FAMILY RELEASE:
Renowned Vancouver-based developmental psychologist Dr. Gordon Neufeld spoke to the IMFC about the importance of healthy attachment between children and parents. In part two, he spoke further about the nature of child development. In part three, he spoke about bullying.
Why are some kids such bullies? How can they change? And what should schools be doing about this terrible problem? Dr. Gordon Neufeld gets to the heart of the matter in this video interview. The good news is that bullies can change. They can even be transformed into protectors. The bad news is that we've been going about it the wrong way. We're battling the symptoms instead of getting to the root of the problem. Most often, a bully's own parents aren't even aware that their child bullies. But there are signs that parents can and should watch for. We hope that you will enjoy this final installment of our video interview with Dr. Gordon Neufeld. Better yet, share it with other parents, teachers and school principals. Because essentially, the problem of children bullying can only be addressed through adult intervention.
