Kids fight. It's part of childhood. But you never thought you'd be the parent called into school because your child was the instigator in a conflict. And here you are, fresh out of the principal's office, stunned. Don't worry, say the experts. Putting an end to your kid's bullying behavior is totally possible -- as long as you, the parent, are brave enough to face the facts and tackle the issue head on. Not only will you stop the principal's office visits and calls from other parents, but you'll also help your child learn how to get along in the world by treating people right. Unless she's heading for a career in crime or reality television, it's something she'll need to know.
