Acts of Kindness Can Prevent Bullying


By Molly Clifton

Kindness may be the key to prevent bullying.

A new study of nine to 11-year-olds found children who were assigned to perform acts of kindness, like sharing their lunch or giving their moms a hug, reported increased feelings of happiness.

Classmates were also more likely to choose them to work on school projects.

Researchers say the more a child has acceptance from his or her peers, the less likely he or she will be bullied.
