Bullying & Food Allergies

Wouldn't we all love to think that our angels will never be bullied?  Wouldn't it be nice if we lived in a world where people didn't hurt other people?  Sadly, we don't live in that world.  In our world, some people push others around, intentionally say hurtful things, and regularly threaten their peers.... they bully others.  And, in our world full of allergens, the sad fact is that our angels are often an easy target for those who want to bully others.

Kids with Food Allergies has published many articles to help you and your children deal with food allergies and bullies.  Today's article "Bullying of Children with Food Allergies - How You Can Help" reminds us to talk to our children openly about bullies and what to do if they or others are victims of bullies.

Today, as many of you are home for the holiday, take time to chat with your kids.  Remind them, not only about bullies and what to do as a victim, but also remind them of how they can show kindness.  If our children can recognize kindness, then it will go a long way to helping them recognize unkind, bullying behaviors.

Stop bullying.  Be proactive.
