We moved a year ago and sadly, it introduced my children to the world of bullies. It seems to be the “in” thing for kiddos of all ages these days to bully.
Some chilling facts:
– 13 million kids will be bullied this year. *
– Over 50% of the time when a bystander stands up to bullying, the bullying stops within 10 seconds. *
– In 2011, two-thirds of middle school faculty and staff reported that they witnessed bullying frequently in their schools. *
– The National Association of School Psychologists estimates that over 160,000 students miss school each day because they fear being bullied. *
No child should be bullied, regardless of age, race or gender. It’s time to put an end to this “fad”.
