October is Bullying Prevention month which has been my thing since my first year as a counselor. This month, we are covering bullying prevention adjacent topics. So what does that mean? It means I’m going to be sharing topics for you to cover with students and by covering these topics, you’ll be promoting bullying prevention.

In today’s episode, we are looking at how to create a culture of kindness and how we prevent bullying by doing this. We are covering the benefits of morning meetings, how restorative practices help foster a culture of kindness, a fun school-wide activity you can do to spread kindness, and ideas and insights on how to implement these practices for counselors and teachers.
