Think preschoolers are too young to be bullies? Pay a visit to your local playground and you'll be in for a surprise! Bullying behavior has been identified in children as young as two, which is why it is never too early to start teaching tots methods for preventing the behavior.
While much of the news about bullying focuses on teens and tweens, Disney Junior is introducing the subject to preschoolers as part of October's National Bullying Prevention Month. Sheriff Callie's Wild West will air an episode titled "Toby Braves the Bully" beginning Saturday, Oct. 4. In it, Toby is bullied by a visitor to Nice and Friendly Corners but is afraid to tell anyone. Thankfully, Sheriff Callie (voiced by Mandy Moore) steps in to explain to him that he's not a tattletale if he tells grown-ups what is happening through a new, upbeat "You're Not a Tattletale" song.
Get an exclusive sneak peek at the song now and be sure to tune in on Saturday. This is one lesson you really don't want your little ones to miss.
