From New York Times , and

In July, the American Academy of Pediatrics will come out with a new statement on how to prevent childhood bullying.

Dr. Robert Sege, one of the lead authors on the policy, joins The Takeaway with his big ideas.

For parents and teachers looking for advice on how to deal with bullying, head to today's New York Times to read Perri Klass's article, At Last, Facing Down Bullies (and Their Enablers).
