Not all kids who bully are big. Sometimes the smallest, shyest kids can be the ones doing the most damage to others either in person or on social media. Encourage your kids to not judge someone until they get to know them.

Hi kids, It's Tanner here again. Well, it's August 1st. That means school is starting soon. Are you excited about going back to school, or not. I know some kids who were teased a lot last year, so they aren't too thrilled to go back. I'll be sure to stick close to them and help them get past the kids who bully. You can do that too. #TANNERSTUESDAYTIPS #STOPBULLYING #BECOOLKINDKIDS
