Co-Host Melody Foxx and guest, Jamie Mantell, discuss the many forms of bullying, a serious public health issue that affects many teens. In the news a great deal lately, bullying is finally getting the attention of those who can help our youth.
The effects of bullying can impact victims even after they enter adulthood. As a parent, it is important to recognize if your child is being bullied, or if she is bullying someone else. If you suspect that your child is involved on either side of the equation, you will need to get involved, make a difference in your child’s life and help put a stop to bullying.
