Mississippi middle schoolers pick up anti-bullying tips
from The Associated Press via WAPT-TV
Middle school students in Mississippi are learning ways to deal with the age-old problem of bullying. About 300 students from across the state attended a conference in Jackson. They got advice on how to recognize when their classmates are picking on others — and how to help the victims. One of the first lessons: Don't laugh when someone's being bullied, even if it seems not to bother the person. The victim might just be putting on a brave face. The teens and preteens will become peer counselors in their schools.
