    Make a home for your garden birds

    Help your child beat bullying

Children can be cruel and, as books like Lord of the Flies show, are adept at spotting difference and weakness in their peers. Bullying often comes from a place of fear: the perpetrating child may have difficulties at home, or feel anxious themselves at school. […] more
