Traumas project onto others and we have to start choosing to reprogram and break the cycle, there's enough bullying in the world!

We’ve really explored so many different angles of bullying from politics, to children, to society in general. And, we’ve had on some incredible guests too — from Marianne Williamson speaking about the political side of bullying to hearing Joe Newman’s perspective on parenting and bullying from a child’s perspective. And of course, Jodie Patterson’s incredible story about her transgender son and loving without labels.


We hope you’ll join us this week as we talk about the key takeaways from this past month and dive even deeper into the topic of bullying!
