LICKING THE BULLY PROBLEM

From USA TODAY:

Sweet-natured dogs lolling about classrooms are helping take a bite out of bullying — and other bad behaviours in Kansas City schools. "No More Bullies" teaches, with dogs' help, responsibility, compassion, self-control and integrity. Since its small launch five years ago, teachers and counselors have become so convinced of the positive impact on kids' behaviour that it's booked into the 80-classroom max it can handle, and there's a long waiting list of requests for next year.

Thanks to Tracie for sending this story in to The MadPriest Mansion who says, "Wish we’d had this when I was in school."

  1. Yes, this is a GREAT idea.

    We talked about bullying in last Saturday’s early meditation class. It brought up a lot of tension, actually. But I think it’s something EVERYONE needs to bring out in the open.

  2. Aw, I had to go thru the photo section to learn that that is sweet Wally w/ the class there. {smooch!}
