Big Fish, Little Fish: Voices on Bullying

Carlyn Zwarenstein of Voices for Children sent this invitation to have a new look at the old problem of bullying.

It’s not about the bully, the bystander, or the victim — it’s about the relationships among them. It’s not just about kids in the classroom — it’s about families in trouble, relationship skills in a big fish-eats-little-fish society, and Donald Trump in your living room. We invite you for a new look at an old problem.

Tonight, Tuesday, February 27th, 7:00 pm. Innis Town Hall, 2 Sussex Ave, a free, public event will be held. It will be in question and answer format where parents, young people, educators, and members of the public concerned about the critical phenomenon of bullying can speak with young people with experience from both sides of the issue, with Dr. Faye Mishna, an expert on cyber-bullying, with Angelo Sartor, a youth worker who works on anti-bullying initiatives, and Dr. Debra Pepler, a top Canadian anti-bullying researcher who has just written a report — launching at the event — calling for a new approach to bullying.
