This 40-minute videotape tackles the issue of childhood bullying and unwanted teasing and torment. This videotape features real school children handling dramatic roles, and "doing the right thing" (aka "positive modeling.") The film is divided into two distinct parts: first act themes include bullying, girl bullies, children without one or both parents, the danger of careless play involving fire, disrespecting authority, talking back to parents, etc. The second act includes more "positive" topics, including forgiveness, standing up for your own beliefs, going against peers or friends and doing what is right, the power of innocent bystanders in confronting bullying behavior, accepting those who are different, the power of positive role-modeling, and making amends for past negative behavior. Included is a study guide for use both before and after viewing the videotape. (GCP)
