Stop that bully
Beaufort Elementary Principal Morillo is bringing awareness to the nationwide problem of bullying and cyberbullying in schools. Bullying can be physical or psychological intimidation, from hitting and stealing to spreading rumors, teasing or social exclusion. Cyberbullies can make their identities and make attacks 24/7 via computers, cell phones or other electronic devices. “Parents, you play a key role in whether or not your child becomes a bully,” said Principal Morillo.  “Parents who have a good relationship and talk openly with their child, raise children who are less likely to bully others.” Kids need a positive adult attitude to follow as an example. If you or your child is bullied, remember you have school counselors, social workers, nurses, administrators and teachers to talk to.
