My little one is still a toddler, but this theme is already something I've had to deal with on the playground and at our community pool, if you can believe it.
It starts young, bigger kids picking on the smaller ones. Heck, I've even witnessed smaller kids that just have a "bigger personality" that end up doing a bit of bullying on the playground.
|The Legend of Captain McFinn & Friends Book|
Captain McFinn and Friends is a great educational book series that was written to encourage friendly play and kindness in children between the ages of 4-8.
In my opinion, these materials can be introduced even earlier, as my daughter is just shy of 2 years old and already is beginning to understand about kindness and likes to be rewarded for "good behavior."
