Victoria Beckham is today one of the most glamorous, celebrated women in the world, but there was a time when she was bullied frequently at school—and is teaching her youngest child and only daughter Harper the power of kindness.
Yesterday, Beckham shared a series of photos with Harper on her Instagram that celebrated Anti Bullying Week. In an added video, per People, Beckham addressed her own bullying story, which she also spoke about in the caption. “BE THE KINDEST IN THE CLASSROOM!” she wrote. “I’m so proud to raise a strong and caring daughter!”
She added “Growing up I was bullied a lot at school, and I often tell Harper how important it is to be kind and call out if anyone is ever bullied—especially if there’s ever another little girl on her own in the playground, because that was once her mummy!”
Beckham—who is also mom to sons Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz—closed her post by writing “This #AntiBullyingWeek it’s so important not to be silent if someone is alone or being bullied. xx Kisses #HarperSeven I love you so much xx.”
