ToL 018: Tough Skin, Tender Heart


In this episode which comes just ahead of National Anti-Bullying week, I offer my thoughts on why schools should look at bullying as an opportunity for growth rather than something we should be committed to stamping out. The rest of this week’s recording is an extract of a longer interview I conducted 18 months ago with bullying expert Brooks Gibbs who advocates for a two-pronged approach to managing bullying - that we should empower our pupils to develop a tough skin and a tender heart and apply ‘the Golden Rule’.
