Are ‘mean girl mums' raising bullies?

Our principal psychologist Azza Brown comments about the impact of role modelling on children in the context of "Mean girl mums raising bullies"

"To stop your child becoming a bully or being bullied, it's important for parents to exhibit the right type of behaviours, encourage problem solving and act with kindness.
