Types of Bullying: Introduction

Girl reading bullying pamphlet.

Today we’re going to start a new series on the various types of bullying.

Bullying is a huge topic. Let’s start with a definition. Here’s how the US Department of Health and Human Services defines bullying in their Stop Bullying Now project:

“Bullying happens when someone hurts or scares another person on purpose and the person being bullied has a hard time defending himself or herself.”

That’s a really good definition, but what does it mean? How do bullies scare people? What tactics do they use? What does bullying behavior look like?

Friday, February 11th, 2011

A common question we get is “how can I get my child started in magic?”

This is a hard question to answer. Magic is a difficult art that takes years of discipline to master. It’s not something that you can pay $9.95 for at Wal-Mart and suddenly be successful.

Monday, December 27th, 2010

This past weekend we performed for a young lady’s birthday party. Afterward she told us “I love magic! I wish I could do it! I have these ring things, but I can’t make them work!”

This is actually a pretty common thing. The majority of kids magic sets are pretty crummy. I’ve seen more than one child with a sincere interest in magic give up in frustration because they couldn’t make the stuff work.

Earlier I posted about gifts for the budding magician. At that point I recommended books because they really are the best investment early on.

Many parents want to buy a “trick” though… Which is where the problem comes in. They head out to Toys R Us or worse yet, the Dollar Tree and pick up a magic kit.
