As I was driving B and M (3.5 years old) home from school yesterday, I overheard this conversation.
M calls B “Poopy.” B says, “My name is Brooke, you can call me Brooke.”
M calls her “Poopy” again. B says, “If you are mean to me, then I’m going to walk away.”
M turns to her and pleads, “Can you please play with me?”
B says, “Then don’t be mean to me! If you are nice to me, then we can play together. If you are not nice to me, then I’m going to walk away.”
If every child learned this Montessori Grace and Courtesy lesson, bullies would have no one to bully. And bullying in schools would literally Cease. To. Exist.
