LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The YWCA began its "Network Luncheon Series" talking about a subject that hits close to home for many in the community.
Julie Smart is a counselor at Happy Hollow Elementary and led the discussion today about bullying and social networks.
Two current high school students also shared their experiences of bullying.
Smart said through the discussion and the topics that were discussed, she noticed several shocked faces.
"But that's good too, because then it hits home and lets them know the severity of what is being said and happening to our kids, teenagers," said Smart. "That opens the dialogue and gets the communication started."
Moving forward, the group wants to have more conversations and more do more proactive education about bullying.
