Talking to your children about Bullying using Netflix #StreamTeam

One of the most common questions that I receive from parents is "how do I help my child deal with a bully"?

It can be tough to know how to talk to our children about the topic. We don't want to scare them, but at the same time we need to educate and empower them.

Don't know how to start the conversation? Let Netflix help. You might not think of Netflix as a resource when talking to your children about this tough topic. But in honor of National Bullying Prevention Month they have put together an amazing list of movies to help you start the bullying discussion with your children, regardless of their age.

Remember, kids learn in different ways, and in this new age, technology can be a powerful way to get the conversation started. Your children will be able to relate to the movies and it will give you a great foundation for starting difficult but important conversations.

For smaller children...show them that there is a hero in all of us.


Little Kids
1. Hercules
2.Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
3.Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes
4.Spy Kids: All the Time in the World
5.Justice League Unlimited
6.Ben 10: Alien Force


If you have older children...show them real and relevant stories about kids who fight back.

Big Kids
1. Bully
2.The War
3.Billy Elliott
4.The Fat Boy Chronicles
5.Cyber Bully

Watch the movies together and start asking questions. Here are a few that can be applied to all the movies

How do you think he felt when that happened?
What would you do if you were in the same situation?
How could you have helped her?
Do any of those things ever happen to you at school?
Do you know what it means to be bullied?
Do you know what to do if you are ever bullied?

Choose movies and ask questions appropriate to your child's age and understanding.

It is also important that as parents we know the warning signs of bullying. As well as what we can do  to help our children.

Warning Signs of Bullying


  • Unexplained Injuries
  • Lost or destroyed clothing, book, electronics, etc.
  • Frequent headaches and/or stomach aches, faking illness and feeling sick
  • Changes in eating habits, like skipping meals or eating a lot. (Kids coming home from school hungry might mean they didn't eat lunch)

  • Not wanting to go to school

  • Disinterested in social situations
  • Decreased self esteem

  1. Are you interested in helping others? Can you handle and care for people who learn differently and have other behavioral problems? Do you want to make a difference in a young child's life? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you might consider a career in special education. Below is a breakdown of the short and long-term responsibilities of a special education teacher.http://www.writingdesk.pw/

  4. It is very important to have close connection with children so that they can share everything with you. In this regards I found some books for christian parents to look and get the guidelines. It is very beneficial for me and helped me to understand the psyche of my kids.

  5. Hello, my name is RITA CARMEN and I have been trying to get pregnant for over 12 years. i have been looking for ways online for so long, I first did Depo Provera Shot which i consecutively took every three months in order to get pregnant or fertile, but there was no way from it. I did Depo shot for 3 years constantly until my Doctors in Australia told me to try IVF because I had Endometriosis stage 4 and I resulted to try IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). For months after my IVF no progressed and my situation became worse that my husband had already had plans or getting married to another woman because I was barren. I read a testimony about Prophet Abulele how he had helped so many women with pregnancy problems and also how he usually casts return spells to bring back partner and make one fertile. Of all options tried, I gave Prophet Abulele a try. I am now a mother of a baby boy. For over 13 years of my marriage I received my help from this spell caster. I want to impact on someone's life and make the person get help from a good spell caster. Prophet Abulele's email is:- prophetabulelehealingtemple@gmail.com and his WhatsApp is +2349022406159 once you contact him, he will help you fast.

  8. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
