When it comes to flourishing in school nowadays, scientific evidence is mounting that confirms what many of us have suspected all along—that if we want children to truly learn, and to perform better in life as both students and citizens, then we have to educate them in an environment that they see as safe, caring and nurturing. In short, school social climate matters, so social and emotional learning (SEL), combined with character education just may be the magical combination that makes academic growth possible.

With the evolution of technology, however, bullying has become far more pervasive and damaging than the playground taunts of days gone by, and it’s becoming more and more important for parents to do their part in the prevention of childhood harassment. Not only is it essential for parents to understand the warning signs and conditions that could foster an affection for bullying, but also to admit that even their own child could be an offender.
