How to Bully Proof Using Empathy
Bullies often have no empathy for others. Here is a very effective way to develop empathy and reduce bullying in the process.
To promote empathy among young people just get them discussing the answer to this question, ” How would you feel if?…( You outline the specific situation) Get them writing what I call reflection papers, creating bulletin boards, conducting class discussions, creating collages and art work on the subject etc. This must be done frequently not just once in awhile. Empathy must be seen by young people to be a strong value in the adults they live and work with.
