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"

........ Brown says, "If a child sees their parent excluding other people, then they're likely to copy the same behaviour but do it at their level to another child. It also gives them a sense of power, which they learn from a young age."

"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. Equip children with the tools to handle their own conflicts rather you than rushing headlong into meddling or telling off another child in a social situation," says Brown.
