I have decided that the non fiction animation will be based on the Bullying:
The reason for this is that it has a wide subject area to cover and I have some what of an experience in it since, i was often a victim to bullying. There are also hundred of sources on bullying all over the internet, Tv, books etc.

Question that you should ask one’s self:
- I their anything else bothering my child?
- Has there been any changes at home like a new baby, marriage, divorce or separation?
- Is my child the victim or the bully?
