Rachel Giese’s dangerous thinking

Has bully talk gone too far?

After being called into the principal’s office at her son’s school to talk about his recent bad behaviour, Rachel Giese, senior editor and writer for The Walrus, wondered if all the talk about bullying had gone too far.
“I feel like every act of aggression or conflict between children is getting pathologized in a way,” Giese says.
She also questions whether children are being held to standards of behaviour that politicians and other adults clearly don’t abide by.
Below is a video interview with Giese and Elle Flanders.
