Why are some kids such bullies? How can they change? And what should schools be doing?

In the first of four short video interviews by the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada, Dr. Gordon Neufeld gets to the heart of the matter.

According to Dr. Neufeld, when a child feels vulnerable, they become hardened to their own feelings. Once that happens, the natural instinct they have to take care of others gets warped – into a desire to dominate them.

Dr. Gordon Neufeld is a renowned Vancouver-based developmental psychologist.
