Why do children begin bullying other children? And how can we help them get beyond the habit?
Because yes, it is a habit that has been developed over time, to make themselves feel better about themselves, and or to get what they want. Here's something that we need to consider...
Bullying could also be a way to avoid the fact that the child or teenager doesn't know how to do something.
The definition of Bullying: Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance.

Are Parents Learning the Best Ways to Raise Children Who Are Happy, Healthy and Successful???Have you ever noticed that we live in a “No” world? Here is an interesting exercise. Grab a piece of paper and a pen. Write down headings of Positive on one side and Negative on the other. Which of the headings would the word “no” fit under?
How can you ever raise children with positive results, living in a “No” world? Look at the sign we saw when we went for a walk to the lake the other day. There was an entire list of what not to do in terms of No, No and No. Well, the question is...What the heck can the kids do at the lake? We still don’t know as there was no sign there to teach them what to do.
Do you remember the Disney movie Finding Nemo? Marlin (dad) and Coral (mom) were dreaming about their babies. Marlin had just found the perfect, safe home. As they were dreaming about their babies together, Marlin asks a question. "What if they don't like me?" As they are playing and day dreaming, Coral and Marlin get attacked by a shark. Marlin get's knocked out. Coral makes an attempt to save her babies and ends up giving up her life with all of the eggs, except one. Marlin is left with one egg. He looks at the egg and says "I promise, I'll never let anything happen to you."

Good Parenting Teaches Children Self-Control
“Little Timmy was playing in the backyard. He found the fountain that my grandma gave me, when she passed away, and he decided that it looked better in a hundred little pieces! Can’t you control your child!?!”

The mindset that wishes to control a child is one that believes that it is natural for children to be out of control. And every good parent has been taught to expect poor behvaior. For example, we label children as terrible twos, horrific threes, defiant/demanding or rebellious teens, just to name a few pre-determined labels. The other part of this belief is that because of these labels, which every adult knows, good parenting must control the child because the child cannot control themselves. Well...they used to believe that the earth was flat!

Parents, How Can Universal Truths Help Good Parents Become Phenomenal Parents?Tom and I completely understand that every family is different and that every child is different. Absolutely! And they always will be.
However, if you were to take every diversified individual and had them walk off the edge of a cliff, each diversified mind and body would fall off of the edge, due to the worldly Law of Gravity. Yes?
Dr. Wernher Von Braun, a Nasa Space Scientist says that “The natural laws of the universe are so precise that we have no difficulty building a spaceship to fly to the moon and we can time the landing with the precision of a fraction of a second”
