Reasons to give thanks: Real progress on anti-bulling

As we enjoy our Thanksgiving turkey this year, we are grateful for the progress that's been made to preserve the effectiveness of anti-bulling. Parents teachers, schools and government agencies have taken important steps this year to curb bullying against our youth.

Each day, over 100,000 students miss school because they are afraid to tell their caregivers, “I’m the target of bully, and I don’t know what to do.” Educators and parents must unite and teach them the skills necessary to know when to stand up for themselves, and when to ask for help. Although there are severe cases of bullying, most situations can be remedied by gentle but persistent adult intervention.

'What’s a real man?'

In the days since Martin left the Dolphins’ training complex in disgust over what he said was continuous and over-the-top hazing by Incognito and others, America has found itself in a debate over the definition of modern manhood, pitting the primacy of old warrior codes against evolving social expectations around bullying and cruel joshing. As the NFL probes the Dolphins’ locker room culture and, more broadly, the league’s views on hazing, the incident has reverberated across the country, at a time when basketball, European soccer, and now American football have become embroiled in controversies around cultural, racial, and gender sensitivities. Many have rushed to Incognito’s defense, blaming Martin for failing to resolve the matter inside the locker room, and for not just punching back twice as hard at Incognito to assert dominance.
“If Incognito did offend him racially, that's something you have to handle as a man!” one anonymous NFL-er told Sport Illustrated’s Ji…
