‘TAKE A CHILD TO THE THEATRE TODAY’ 

March 20th is World Theatre for Children and Young People Day and the message this year is 'Take a Child to the Theatre Today'. Theatre is not only entertaining for kids, but is proven to have a positive influence on behaviour and issues relating to health, wellbeing and society. Kids are often also more receptive to these important messages because they can empathise or relate to the characters on an emotional level.

You’re being a bully if you are nasty to someone every day or even every week. It might be straight to their face, behind their back or on-line. (It may have just been one time)

How do you feel when you’re saying or doing nasty things to people?

1-  Excited?

2-  Powerful?

3-  Bad or guilty?

4-  Nothing?

5-  Scared?

6-  Nervous?

Stop making yourself feel bad, guilty, nothing, scared and nervous!

Is there something more constructive you could do to make yourself feel powerful or excited?

Why do you do it?
