Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton recently defended President Donald Trump’s youngest son Barron after he was the subject of online attacks criticizing the way he dresses. Chelsea, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, promptly stood up for Barron as the story drew attention on Twitter.
“It’s high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves,” Clinton tweeted.
Bullying takes many forms – and even a president’s son can be bullied, and a former president’s daughter can come to his aid.
If you are organizing any events for those that work with children, bullying is a major topic that concerns them all.
