First, stop by Moody Mom’s blog and leave a comment by Monday, Dec. 13, to enter the Freebie Friday contest to win three perfectly adorable salt-dough ornaments!
I read Leigh’s (Will Work for Hugs and Kisses) recent post about her son being bullied, so this really caught my eye.
I’m not sure how they recruit mothers who are willing to expose their tiny babies to [germy] would-be bullies, but I guess Roots of Empathy is an interesting concept.
I know I get mobbed by the kids at Beans’ school when I’m there with Tallulah. Kids I wouldn’t have thought would pay any attention to a baby ask him – and me – questions about his baby sister. Therefore, I know having a little one around does have an effect on behavior. But I’m a bit of a germaphobe, and I do my best to keep her out of their reach as much as possible, so I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have volunteered to take her in for regular visits as a young infant.
What do you think? Do you think something like this could change the way kids think and act? Would you offer up your baby for some potential bully-proofing of young ‘uns?
