SOLANGE ON BULLYING: I TALK TO MY SON ABOUT BULLYING
Solange Knowles has taken to social networking site Twitter to speak against bullying. The celebrity mom says that she feels that there should be anti-bullying campaigns pushed “towards the parents.”
She asks, “Am i the only one who thinks there should be more campaigning towards PARENTS for anti-bullying?”
“I think the itgetsbetter campaigns are amazing, but I honestly feel like there needs to be a national push towards the parents!! Parents need to talk to children & tell them how serious it is when they tease, joke , banter, form groups against, & explain consequences!
She adds, “I believe my son is a very loving, considerate, & nice boy, but you can’t put anything past your children when you send them into the big world!”
The singer says she has been teaching her six-year-old son about bulling.
“I had a long talk with Julez about bullying on both ends, and encouraged his father to do the same. I explained to him the serious effects.”
“Unfortunately, i remember being a child when something horrible is happening. It does feel like the end of the world, but someone telling you its gonna be o.k only feels like a temporary relief.”
