...but are they bullies? A recent WSJ article title "Little children are already acting mean" brings to mind a blog post I wrote a couple of years ago (linked above).

Left unchecked, for some the pattern of behavior will become bullying later. But prevention is possible. Read the link and let me know what you think.
