Moms Talk will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic.
This week, we start the conversation with a question about bullying. It seems to be a serious subject for children of all ages, so much so that the Missouri legislature has gotten involved. These days, bullying can take place at school, after school and even online.
What should children do if they find themself being picked on? Do they report it to a teacher, parent or just stand up to the bully? And if they do tell a parent, what's the best way for a parent to address the bullying of their child?
