LEADERS AND FOLLOWERS: Being the boss and being bossy are two very different things. One is about showing leadership skills and the other is about domination over another. Parenting expert Alyson Shafer talks to parents about the importance of knowing when to lead and when to follow. She also discusses empowering kids to stand up for themselves when they are being bossed around.

ADDRESSING DIFFERENCES: Cultural differences are learned at a very young age and it is imperative that acceptance of those cultures and ethnicities are taught by teachers and parents. Diversity officer Chris D'Souza explains how important it is to move past tolerance, towards acceptance and inclusion of ethnicities and to empower kids to be active in reporting discrimination.
