ARE PARENTS LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR KIDS WHO BULLY?
February 23, 2021
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
Bullying is on the rise in schools and online. If you or your kids were ever bullied, you know that it leaves lasting psychological scars on kids who are bullied-if not physical ones. So who's to blame? Parents run into apathy, helplessness, retaliation and more if they try to get the school to fix the problem. Yet, they rarely ask themselves if they are ultimately responsible for their child's bad behavior. Today's guest, Mark Simon, is now a successful entertainment industry veteran, but when he was a teen, he was terrorized by a group of boys who brutally bullied and physically attacked him and his family. His memoir-ATTACKED! Bullied: Surviving Terror and Finding Justice- tells the story of how he fought back in court and became the first person in the country to successfully use a law holding parents legally responsible for the hurtful actions of their kids. It is a cautionary tale for all families. Find out what makes a bully and what makes families responsible for their acts.
