Rahet Bally team has been receiving a lot of comments from mothers about their children being bullied or being subjected to mean comments from other adults. Unfortunately, we live in a society where everyone feels the need to comment, whether it’s about appearance, hair, weight, behavior, sports, or even speech impairment. Because of this cultural norm, our children are constantly being the target of indirect bullying, putting their self esteem at risk.
Because of this, our positive parenting specialist, Rana Hany, launched a campaign against bullying to highlight what constitutes as bullying and the impact it has on a child’s well-being.

If you tell your child that they’re stupid, they will believe it. If you compare your child to another sibling or someone else, they will feel like a failure. That’s why you should be very careful of what and how you make your children feel.
