CBC’s Mark Kelley set up a video booth in a Qubec school this past spring.
More than 150 students streamed into the booth to pour out their personal anecdotes about bullying.
They revealed an array of raw stories from all perspectives — the bully, the bullied and the bystanders — as well as how they try to “bullyproof” themselves.
This remains the sad reality. This is what our kids have to live with when we send them to school. This is what they have to live with in so many of their activities beyond school.
We’re just not doing a good enough job to get rid of bullying. Yes, it has always existed and to a degree, it will always be there. But it has evolved into something that follows kids into their “safe places”. And somehow people say, “You can’t get rid of bullying, so…” Well, maybe we can’t get rid of it. But shouldn’t we stomp on it at every possible opportunity?
