The alleged bullying within the Miami Dolphins organization is local and relevant for our little ones.
Many have gone to football games, worn their jerseys, and perhaps attended the summer training camp in Davie. Seeing the players they admire on TV talking about bullying can help school-age children understand the bigger consequences and how even as adults we face adversity.
Even preschoolers can benefit from watching the news and then discussing how being mean to others is not nice. The learning lesson here is to be kind to everyone and no one gets hurt.
