Bullying Story

  • “My son is a little bit smaller for his age at 6 and he's on the last soccer practice of the year. He was wanting to withdraw from the team because the bigger guys are telling him he was 4. We were able to talk about what's going on there. He doesn't have to be as affected by some of these things.”
  • “I think we really had a good dialogue and he became more confident to say NO if that situation came up again.”
