National Bullying Prevention Week
It’s National Bullying Prevention Awareness Week and I am urging everyone to get involved. I’ve talked about it before but for those who don’t know, I was a victim of bullying and was taken out of school to be home schooled.
Just because bullying happens every day doesn’t mean we have to accept it. Did you know that more than 160,000 kids stay home from school to avoid bullying? That’s just not right. No one should intimidate or scare you like that. Even if you’re not a victim, you can help others by speaking up. I decided to try and help other kids that are being bullied and recently teamed up with Pacer’s National Center for Bullying Prevention. Anyone can check out PACER’s TeensAgainstBullying.org and PACER.org and find ways to stop bullying.
If we speak up, we can make a difference. I did it and so can you!
