If you know a child bully, look closer at where they maybe learning their behavior.
The apple never falls far from the tree, which is why moms and kids alike are tormented. It’s bad enough that kids bully other kids. But look out for another rascal on the playground. Do you know her?
THE BULLY MOM aka The Monster in The Minivan.
Either you’ve seen her terrorize others, or she’s come after you personally. She’s always got a juicy rumor to share about another mom, or worse: a child. She’s the one who made you feel bad because you couldn’t breast-feed…. or labeled you the “boob Nazi” because you dared to nurse in public. You may have a regular group of moms in your play-date, but she’s always “forgetting” to invite certain women.
Or is it more than 1 mom? Perhaps an entire group of culprits are making you sweat each time you see them. Bullies tend to flock together, excluding the new mom on the playground, or flat out ignoring the mom who just moved into the area hoping to make some new friends and simply “fit in.”
While women are capable of such strong friendships and acceptance, they are just as capable of being downright MEAN.
As Little Parents who Stay Home and Parents of The Our Milk Money Organization, we’ve accomplished A LOT together. We’ve rallied and united, forming a nationwide movement of parents who have vowed to support one-another in our choice to work from home. Now its time to come together for a new cause: The Anti-Bully Campaign. Live and Let Live. Support each other and THRIVE!
Now I KNOW that none of you are tyrants, (right?!?)… But I do know that you are powerful parents who care to make a difference for yourselves and for your children. We all want to live bully-free. I have invited 2 incredible women to talk about how we can stop the bullying altogether and contribute to a more peaceful playground and contented community.
Please welcome a wonderfully giving, supportive and hard-working member of Our Milk Money, Stacy McGuigan. I’ve invited her to join me on this anti-bullying show as a Co-Host because she is a terrific example of how we can use our passions for good, and how the decision to support others can move mountains! If more people were like Stacy, the world would be a better place. READ MORE ABOUT STACY MCGUIGAN HERE–>
