Parent Talk tip: In part one, a boy who was bullied at a younger age has turned into a bully himself. He’s gotten into altercations with another boy at school and both have been suspended more than once. In part two, Diane encourages parent to help son turn his irritation into compassion. She suggests watching the old black and white movie together, “Captains Courageous” by Rudyard Kipling.

Diane Moore is a certified family life counselor and parent mentor with her own private practice in Vancouver. Her radio show, Parent Talk, was heard in Portland, Vancouver and Boise.

Today’s tip comes from a conversation between Diane and one of the show’s callers. It has been edited for time.
