I played talkshow host for an online show called Nadi on KiniTV few days ago. The above is a screen cap of the interview. Click here to watch the interview in full: Interview with KiniTV
This week’s focus is on the tragic death of a Malaysian teen, T Nhaveen who died after suffering from severe internal bleeding as a result of being bullied by four other teens. I spoke to Elizabeth from a Malaysian NGO called Protect and Save the Children about bullying and what we can do as parent or members of the general public.
When you see bullying, take action. Talk to a parent, teacher, or another adult you trust.
Be kind to the kid being bullied. Show them that you care by trying to include them. Just hanging out with them will help them know they are not alone.
Not saying anything could make it worse for everyone. The kid who is bullying will think it is ok to keep treating others that way.
Let’s all do our part.
