Watch adults do the right thing when overhearing kids bullying a peer

Monday, October 26th, 2015

Though at WBI we focus exclusively on adults bullying one another in the workplace, there are lessons to be derived from attempts to stop schoolage bullying. A wonderful experiment exposed adults at a bus stop (probably in S.F. based on signage) to two girls tormenting a third girl. Note how adults intervene and some remove the bullied girl from the others for safety. If only adults would do the same to help their tormented colleagues at work. Of course, adults at a bus stop face no risk intervening with younger people. Wonder if the result would be the same if the kids were all boys and of high school age (who might be carrying a gun in their backpack), or boys of color?????
