What can be done to promote tolerance and stop bullying in schools?
Children for the most part do what they are raised to do. I think the solution starts with the parents. Raise your children to be accepting of others, to treat others as you wish to be treated. Realistically, kids can be brats and that is a part of growing up, nothing to be done about that. But if children see their parents being more accepting and less judgmental of others, it will wear off on them just like the bad habits do. When we grow up we do or think a lot of the same things our parents did. So if your child is bullying other children at school, maybe you should do a self examination on how you treat others.
