They say that compassion and empathy are the keys to combating bullies. If that's the case, what better weapon to fight them than man's best friend?
Under the unique "Mutt-i-grees" Curriculum, dogs are used to help kids learn to stand up for themselves – and for others.
This morning on American Morning, Misty Ginicola, a representative of the "Mutt-I-Grees" curriculum, joins Christine Romans on American Morning with Maya Gant and Mike Lazarre, two student participants in the program at the Saint Martin de Porres Academy in Connecticut. They were also joined by Penny, one of the curriculum's dog participants, to help explain why the program is so effective.
