The Opposite of Bullying

Stories about bullying are constantly in the news. That’s one of the reasons a segment like the one from ABC News embedded below stands out. It’s about a boy with cerebral palsy who was cheered on to finish a race by a teacher and classmates. For me, it raises questions like – Why do some kids respond with encouragement toward those who are different as opposed to responding with bullying and belittlement? Is it different role models or lessons taught at home and in school? Is it a matter of peer pressure used in a positive way? I have no answers. Regardless, let’s have more of whatever the people featured in the video are doing to get these kinds of results.
