IT can sometimes be difficult to explain things to children in a way that they understand.
But one mum has come up with a brilliant method of teaching her kids why they shouldn’t bully others – and all you need is a piece of paper.

She asked her son to say mean things for the paper and for each insult, she scrunched a section of the paper[/caption]
Holding up the paper, she instructed her son: “I want you to say mean things to this paper!”
“Okay!” her son replied, before beginning: “You’re ugly.”
For each insult, the mum scrunched a section of the paper.
“Your breath stinks, you smell like poop, your family doesn’t love you, you’re fat, you need to lose weight, you don’t brush your teeth, you don’t wash your hands,” the son continues.
By the end, the paper has been scrunched into a tiny ball.
“Now I want you to say SORRY to this paper,” she said.

Once he’d said sorry, she unscrewed the paper, until it was a large piece again – but with the marks from the scrunching still clear to see.
“Is this paper fixed?” she asked.
“No,” he replied.
“This is why we don’t bully,” she concluded.
