TIP 4: SET A GOOD EXAMPLE. A PARENT'S PERSPECTIVE
KEVIN EPLING: It's really about creating a culture in that school where it's not tolerated anymore. And the biggest proponents of that cultural shift are going to be our students. The students are just as tired of this environment as we think they are.
JULIE HERTZOG: My kids have come to embrace people's differences, and just accept them for who they are. And I think when kids model that with each other, and when they're willing to speak up and say its ok to be different, that that's just a really powerful thing. And that other kids catch on to it too because basically all kids are different. They all have something that's unique about them. And if we can teach our kids to accept that, I think our schools will be a better place.
