NSU Dean Offers Bullying Advice in Washington Post Article

According to the book, “No More Mean Girls: The Secret to Raising Strong, Confident, and Compassionate Girls,” research proves that severe childhood bullying puts children in a higher risk of suicidal thoughts and behaviors.  Hard to detect actions, such as spreading rumors and saying hurtful comments on, and off-line, often results in more visits to the doctors.

Meline Kevorkian, Ed.D., spoke with the Washington Post about warning signs to pay attention to if your little girl is being bullied, and offered advice on how to be supportive as a parent to help your child through this time.
