In the latest ‘Talking Parenting with Singakwenza’ presentation, psychologist Tim Barry spoke about the importance of the role of the observer in preventing bullying behaviour. He emphasised the importance of raising children who will not passively stand by when witnessing bullying, or even worse, take pictures or videos to share on social media. Tim helped the parents and teachers present to differentiate between what is simply a playground spat, bullying and criminal behaviour. Thank you to Cordwalles for the opportunity to host this fundraiser at the school.
