Kids And Bullying, From Jennifer Garner (VIDEO)

Jennifer Garner spoke about her personal experience with bullying when she joined me this week on Mondays With Marlo. In middle school, there was a girl who used to corner Jennifer in the bathroom and tell her that she was going to beat her up! Jennifer said that keeping an open dialogue with your kids is the best thing you can do. She said that parents should make sure that their kids have a grown-up in their lives that they feel comfortable talking to, and ensure that they have access to that person.

Check out Jennifer's newest film, "Dallas Buyers Club," coming to theaters in November.
