BGC-MARGOT-AND-KIDS-EBullying isn’t reserved for the playground alone; it can happen to anyone at any time. Being confronted with bullying can occur in the neighborhood, in school and on the playground as easily as it can happen to adults in the workplace.! Bullies can’t do their thing in safe spaces. Improvisational space – listening, accepting, supporting, taking risks and celebrating failure – is safe space. It doesn’t have to be on a stage.
