October is National Bullying Prevention Month. If you have kiddos, it would be a great time to talk to them about bullying. But it might be a little awkward to just start a conversation out of the blue. Nextflix has several movies you can stream that will help to get the conversation started. My family decided to check out Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. Despite being picked on, Jimmy uses his special skills and talents to save the day!
We also found an episode of Martha Speaks that touched on the subject. A “bad dog” bully, just need to be treated with some kindness to show he really was a “good dog”. A reminder to us all to treat others the way we want to be treated.
Here is a list of some of the movie you could stream with your kiddos to spark the conversation.
Little Kids (and young at heart)
