With bullying such a common problem in today’s society parents can’t afford to ignore this issue. Here are 10 quick tips for parents to be proactive about bullying. These ideas will help children feel better about themselves and consider the feelings of others – useful strategies for children whether they are being bullied or are doing the bullying.

1. Respect your child’s positive qualities and tell them what they are to boost their self-esteem. The better children feel about themselves the more bully proof they are and the less likely they are to bully others.

2. Model respectful behavior yourself – our children copy what we do. E.g. How do you react if someone cuts you off in traffic and your children are in the car?

3. Listen to your children with empathy so they grow to show it for others. Saying things like “That must have been very scary for you” helps your children, because their feelings are being acknowledged and they truly feel heard.

4. Encourage your child’s social and emotional intelligence by talking about feelings and how other people feel. Questions like: “What do you think it was like for the others when that happened?” help children to see things from outside of their egocentric point of view.

5. Talk to your children about aggressive, submissive and assertive behavior so they understand about power in relationships.

6. Notice when your children are behaving well and tell them! Focusing on positive behavior is such a simple way to get more of it as well as boosting your children’s self-esteem!

7. Give your children opportunities to share their ideas about fighting and bullying and what might work to stop it. Ask questions like: “If … happened, what could you do to keep yourself safe?” to allow children to work out what they could do by themselves.

8. Teach them some concrete strategies to try as well. E.g. instead of focusing on the bullying imagine the bully swelling up and popping. Strategies like this which help a child stay calm can be very helpful. When children learn to be aware of their reactions and the part this plays in being bullied, they can choose to react differently.

9. Stay up to date with your child’s school’s bullying policy and about bullying in general. What do you know about bullying and technology? Find out more about cyberbullying so you are informed.

10. Support your children in solving their own fights or bullying issues rather than stepping in and doing it for them. Remember your response as a parent models a powerful message for your children.

Two coaching questions that are helpful around bullying are:

1. How do I show respect to my children?
2. Am I supporting them to solve their own problems?

If you ask yourselves coaching questions such as these everyday you will be building a close and loving relationship with your children as well as supporting them to deal with bullying and other challenges to the best of their capabilities. After all, isn’t this what children need as they grow towards independence?

Lessons in Propaganda from Government Education
By Stefan Molyneux

“A general State education is a mere contrivance for molding people to be exactly like one another; and as the mold in which it casts them is that which pleases the dominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, an aristocracy, or a majority of the existing generation; in proportion as it is efficient and successful‎, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by a natural tendency to one over the body.” – John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” – Abraham Lincoln

Description:
Now that the Supreme Court has legalized same-sex marriage, the LGBT community and their supporters are celebrating the huge step forward the United States has taken. It has been a long time coming, and those in the LGBT community now have the right to walk down the aisle with the one they love. The ruling was celebrated nationwide, and many celebrities spoke out and gave their support to those in the LGBT community. Miley Cyrus was one of these very vocal supporters. She even has an equal sign tattooed on her ring finger in support of same-sex marriage.

But despite the many celebs who celebrated the ruling, there are a few who won’t be waving around a LGBT flag any time soon. Many of these celebrities’ opinions on gay rights stem from their deep religious viewpoints, while others come across as just being homophobic.

Actor Kirk Cameron is one Hollywood celeb who basis his opinion on gay rights on the teachings of the bible. The born-again Christian has gone on the record to condemn gays, and he even thinks homosexuality is detrimental and destructive to civilization as we know it. Despite receiving backlash from LGBT advocate groups, Kirk stands by his opinion, and we doubt he will be changing his mind anytime soon.

Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is another devout Christian who stands behind his religion and his thoughts on homosexuality. Manny didn’t care about being PC when he said homosexuals were “worse than animals.” Even after receiving backlash for his statements, Manny stood firm on his opinion. He apologized for his comments, but he still feels that homosexuality and same-sex marriage is something that is “against the law of God.”

Other celebrities can’t hide behind their religion when it comes to their disapproval of gays. Singer Chris Brown, for example, seems to have a negative opinion on homosexuals that is deeply rooted in homophobia. The singer has used gay slurs on social media more times than we can count, and he was also accused of telling a male fan “I’’m not into this gay s—t,” before punching him in the face.

Despite this list of celebrities who don’t support gay rights, there are millions of other people in the world who are all for equal rights of everyone regardless of their sexual preference.
