Bullying is terribly harmful and destructive that at least is something most adults agree on, and that’s a good thing. Here’s something you may not have thought of though, when you are arguing with your neighbor who supports the other guy and call each other stupid or any other manner of names, your children are watching. You can tell your children to avoid fighting but what message are they seeing when the police get called because your brother-in-law and your dad are acting like George Foreman and Muhammed Ali over to their respective political candidates? Less than half of the way humans communicate is verbal. I think that especially during political campaigns adults should be aware that things that they do often times have an equal or greater impact than what they say.
