More care needed to prevent bullying

Do we really know our kids? Maybe if we did, there would be less bullying in the world.

Charla Huber did the right thing by expressing her thoughts about the bullying issue (“Bullying experience harsh reminder,” June 1). Talking about what happened to you that day, is the best medicine. I know that sounds cliche but it’s true.

It must have been very difficult to hear those hurtful words from those kids. You just have to know that there must be something going on in those kids lives for them to lash out like that.

Perhaps the many troubles at home or at school had caused them to do this. It’s quite sad that bullying even exists. I think we have to go back to the source and the source is the parents that made those kids and who are raising those kids.

I believe parents need to be 100 per cent involved in their kids lives, ie. such as knowing who their friends are and where they hang out,  knowing what they learned in school that day or just knowing their favourite colour.  Period.

Do we really know our kids? Maybe if we did, there would be less bullying in the world.
