And of course … The Big Kid and Basketball series



This morning I opened up my professional Facebook page and found the following …

Don’t Let Anyone Be Treated Like This

Please take the time to view … so very sad and so very tragic … and preventable.


And to help we must understand the WHY … Why do people bully? What motivates people to bully?

Bob Sullo in the Virginia Journal of Education does a nice job articulating motivations of bullies in his article: Getting at the Roots of Bullying

What Motivates Bullying?

  • Connecting/Belonging
  • Power
  • Freedom
  • Fun
  • Safety/Security




Bullying impacts children and adults alike. (For example, bullying is a huge issue in healthcare). There are many thoughts and theories relative to bullying. Each with information to offer to assist us as we together seek to prevent bullying and care for all those harmed.

And there are many who have learned and grown through the bullying experience.

The Big Kid … Leading and Loving with Courage and Heart … written by my son Tommy Dahlborg
