What can be done to prevent bullying?

There are so many things we can do now, to prevent bullying. That is, we can start early. We bring our children into our homes as babies and we already have the seeds that have been planted. We want to water those seeds and watch them grow into beautiful flowers. We provide the environment for children to flourish, and they are products of our environment that they come into. They have no governing over the environment. So it's really up to us to give them the right tools to grow, so they can grow up and become successful learners and leaders and thrive. When education turns their back on children, it turns their back on their very rights. What we have to do is turn the eye of the storm, we have to focus on the children.
