In our modern society where beauty and riches means power, bullying has become rampant not just in schools and playgrounds but also in workplaces and even in public transportation. Bullying starts at an early age and without proper education and discipline it could continue into adulthood.
As parents, we should first teach our children at home the act of interacting with others. The teachers would then reinforce the values in school by teaching, especially young children, of the effects of bullying.

The teacher used two similar looking apples. Before she started the class, she picked one of the two apples and dropped it hard enough so not to damage its outside appearance. During class she placed the two red, beautiful apples side by side and showed them to her pupils.
She then picked the damaged apple and said that she doesn’t like it. She also asked her pupils to insult the apple she was holding. At first, the pupils were holding back then they said nasty things to the apple. After they insulted one of the apples, they praised and said nice things to the other apple.
Then the teacher cut the two apples in half and showed the pupils the inside of the apples. The praised one looked fresh and juicy, while the other one which was insulted looked damaged and dark. The teacher explained this result in relation to bullying.
