Spotlight: Bullying - How to prevent a child from becoming a bully

NEW PROVIDENCE - Anti-bullying experts say that telling children that bullying is inappropriate and will not be tolerated is important.

Ann Garrity says bullying is a topic of daily conversations with her 7- and 12-year-old children. Anti-bullying expert Stuart Green says he believes most of the kids who become bullies do so because school culture does little to discourage it. That's why he says the best way to combat bullying is to change a school's culture and climate to one of acceptance and inclusion. Share your bullying stories
