UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Discussion
I compliment Senator Noone on what she said. Unless we, as adults, do not call this what it is, namely, bullying, harassment and inappropriate, how do we expect children to call it what it is? It is incumbent on us to step forward. It might be seen as weakness or not being able for it. We are able but we need to call it for what it is. Until such time as adults identify that this behaviour is inappropriate, we cannot expect children to see it.
