When someone is behaving in a way we don’t like, we can choose our response. The way to get a bully to stop is to stop rewarding them. And we do that, through compassionate non-compliance. And I realize that is a big word. It just means, nicely … don’t give them what they want.
Stopping bullying can be done. What doesn’t work, is just hoping it will stop. Wishful thinking, is nice. But it doesn’t make bullying stop. What does? Ahh – that’s the million dollar question.
