No more playground bullying

Our family had moved to a new country, and our children were attending the local school, where they had to learn a new language. In spite of the challenges, they were happy and were learning quickly. 

Then one day both of my children came home from school complaining about a particular boy and his friends and their behavior during recess. The boys were playing a game they called “l’attrape filles,” or “catch the girls.” My daughters didn’t understand this game, but they knew they didn’t like it. The boys were being too aggressive with them—pulling, pushing, and “locking them up.” Initially, I chalked it up to a cultural and linguistic misunderstanding and encouraged the children to figure it out and stand up for themselves.
