- Raising awareness about bullying and shifting the focus from merely identifying the problem to finding solutions and promoting kindness.
- How bullying has evolved over the years, especially due to the influence of social media and technology.
- Setting clear standards of behavior for children, to create safe spaces for communication, and to model pro-kindness behavior, as well as celebrating and appreciating children for who they are.
