Dr. Phil, a well-known TV personality offers people advice for solving problems in their daily lives. He said he wants to help people stop bullying.
He talked about what motivates some children to bully other children, how victims of bullying can fight back, and what students, parents, and teachers can do to stop bullying in their schools.
He gave advice to a young girl Katie, who didn't understand why she was being bullied in her school and to a concerned mother who asked how to stop bullying in her daughter's school.
On his online site, Dr.Phil.com, he showcases some bullying cases. Work with a classmate. Read about one of the cases on this page. Think about what you have learned about bullying in our bullying project and discuss the situation.
Send your thoughts.
