It seems that just about everybody has had experience with babies or bullies — or both. Which is why the commentary that followed this week’s Fixes column about Roots of Empathy — an organization that decreases bullying by bringing babies into school classrooms — was so rich, personal and detailed. At the end of the column, I asked readers if they had ideas for ways to reduce bullying. Many offered suggestions about organizations, techniques and books (some of which I list at the bottom of this column), but many more readers reflected on their own experiences having witnessed bullying or the surprising effect babies can have on children and teenagers.
