Have you heard? October is National Bully Prevention Month! It’s time to pause from our day to day activities and shine a light on kindness and the importance of putting an end to bullying.
We believe that together, we can remove negativity from the world. But, we all have to work together to promote peace and acceptance of everyone. In the spirit of this mission, we want to give you some tips to help be the best anti-bully advocate you can be.
If you or someone you know is being bullied tell an adult. It is always a good idea to make sure that someone knows about the situation so that they can offer help.
Be a friend to the person being bullied. If you see someone who is being bullied, lend them a hand and take them away from the bully. This will help them feel better and who knows? You may gain a great friend.
If you come across a bully, don’t be mean to the bully. Instead, maybe they need a friend. They might not know how to talk to people and they need someone to listen to them. Sometimes being extra nice is the perfect way to handle a bully of your own.
A better world starts when we act with kindness and offer a friendly hand to each other everyday. It doesn’t have to be anything big! Even offering a simple smile to brightens someone’s day is just enough. Together, with kindness, we can stop bullying.
