Is your child being bullied or is he/she picking on others at school? Would she step in to help a friend, or just stand by and watch?
Learn more about bullying during a community program, “Banishing Bullies: A Program for Parents of School-Age Children,” sponsored by Baptist Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 7-9 p.m., in the auditorium at Baptist Children’s Hospital, 8900 N. Kendall Dr
