Stand Up

Are you a bully?

I asked him as part of his routine physical…

16 years old with dreams so big it made my heart glad

We had gone over hours spent on screen time…

We talked about dreams and aspirations…


Distraction recognition

Plan A

Plan B

And yes

plan C…

Are you a bully?

The question was typically preceded by

“Are you being bullied?”

He said no to that

But paused to my last question

“No one has ever asked me that?” He retorted

Well, I ask…

Some kids are bullied and some may be the bullies…

Whatever category you fall, I’d like to help point you in the right direction…

After all it’s all part of living long and well!

“I’m not”

“Sometimes I stand up for those who are bullied”

I grinned!

I’m so proud of you!

Conversations continue…

In health,
Dr. Olabintan
