How is baby Claire being used to help prevent bullying in the classroom?
Incidents of bullying in schools across the U.S. not only have an effect on students’ emotional state, they can also have school wide ramifications. Roots of Empathy, a program in Seattle, is working on curbing aggressive behavior early on by bringing babies into the classroom. Seven-month-old Claire (and her mom) will visit one kindergarten classroom nine times throughout this year. The class then reflects on why Claire is either happy or sad and discusses how the children often have similar feelings.
