Expert Says Bullying By Children Linked To Parental Behavior
Jodee Blanco is a bullying expert and author of New York Times bestseller "Please Stop Laughing At Me" and she joined 'Mornings With Ken & Bernie' today to discuss a New York state incident. In that incident 68 year old school bus monitor Karen Klein was bullied by a group of middle-school students. The incident was recorded, post on the web and went viral with more than 1.5 million views.
Blanco said Klein has declined to press charges but the school says disciplinary action will be taken. According to Blanco,
"In many cases children who bully others are subjected to bullying at home or witness it at home."
Blanco agreed that the school needs to hand out discipline but the source of the bullying behavior must be identified and treated.
