Please watch the whole thing. It will not disappoint.
One of the books I recommend for early bullying prevention is Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud. (You can also download great materials for kids ages 4-9. But to be honest, older kids really get this story, too, so have older kids mentor younger ones using this -- you'll be amazed at how it works.)
The lessons are simple but ageless: either you're a person who dips into someone's bucket and takes something away from them emotionally by being mean or you fill a person's bucket with kindness.
The is one of the most beautiful bucket filling stories I've ever seen. Please share it because everyone needs a little bucket filling.
Hope this starts out your Monday with a smile. (And Nirvan, you are so cool. Sometimes it just takes ONE.)
