What to look for on Smart Talk Thursday, May 8, 2014:
Bullying used to be thought of as a rite-of-passage. Let’s face it – all of us have been the target of a bully, bullied other people, or witnessed someone else being bullied.
Today, the “rite-of-passage” or “kids will be kids” explanations are not accepted.
That’s because we are much more aware of the long lasting or permanent physical, mental, or emotional harm that bullying can do.
However, while awareness has grown, bullying still happens in every school yard. With technology there are even more ways for bullies to inflict pain.
Thursday’s Smart Talk will focus on bullying.
Our guests are Stacie Molnar-Main and Michelle Nutter of Center for Safe Schools.
In addition, there will be a free screening of the documentary film BULLY at WITF’s Public Media Center Thursday, May 15 at 6 p.m. After the film, there will be a facilitated discussion with trained bully prevention experts.
