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.

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
