Kindness may be the key to prevent bullying.

A new study of 9 to 11 year olds found children who were assigned to perform acts of kindness – like sharing their lunch or giving their moms a hug-- reported increased feelings of happiness.

Classmates were also more likely to choose them to work on school projects.

Researchers say the more a child has acceptance from his or her peers, the less likely he or she will be bullied.
