October is National bullying prevention month

 

 

Every October, schools and organizations across the country join STOMP Out Bullying™ in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. The goal: encourage communities to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on all children of all ages.

Make friends with someone you don’t know at school

If you’ve ever been isolated from others at school or you were new at school and it took time to make friends, you know what it feels like to be left out. Or even if you were never isolated, imagine how it would feel.

Make friends with someone at school who you don’t know. Invite them to sit at your lunch table or join you in an after school activity. You probably wish someone had done that for you.

Be a leader. Take action and don’t let anyone at school be in isolation

STAND UP for Others 

When you see someone being bullied, be brave and STAND UP for them. Bullies have been known to back off when others stand up for victims.

If you don’t feel safe get the help of an adult immediately. Be part of the solution — not the problem!Creating an act of kindness every day and challenging others to do the same. Make kindness go viral!

Kindness

Kindness and caring…two very simple words, but two actions that can change your world and the world around you. They are qualities that, when you practice them, bring happiness not only to others but back to you as well.
Everyday we have many choices to make in the way we treat other people and things. These little choices add up to big things. They define who we are as a person and our impact on the world.

Kindness is not inherited it must be taught   

As such, we must teach  kids how to be kind, to think with their hearts. First and foremost, that As such, we must teach our kids how to be kind, to think with their hearts. First and foremost, that happens through modeling, by showing our children kindness, because little eyes are watching, little minds are processing, little hearts are feeling. We must be kind to one another and treat each other with dignity and respect. In our everyday interactions. With a gentle tone in our voice. With a genuine smile. With eyes that sparkle and say, 
You matter to me; I care about you!

20 ways to involve  kindness into your day!

1.Pay for the person behind you at the drive thru. Whether it be a coffee or a whole meal. Make sure to stay anonymous and relay a friendly message to the person like “Have a nice day!” or “Spread kindness and pay it forward”.
2. Leave a gift for someone in a random public place such as on a park bench, at a bus stop, the library, a coffee house, or restaurant. You can even stick around and catch them finding your gift to see their reaction!

3. Praise someone at work for a job well done when the occasion arises. Best to do this in front of other coworkers or his or her boss.

4. Tutor a younger person in reading. You can find a local literacy volunteer organization through a Google search on “Literacy Volunteers Your State.”

5. Send someone you know who is going through a difficult time a card, flowers, cookies or some thoughtful expression that lets them know that you care and are thinking of him or her.

6. Volunteer at a homeless shelter, helping serve a meal or with any organization that you feel passionate about. VolunteerMatch is a great website where you can find many organizations in need of help and searchable by zip code, state and keywords.

7. Be compassionate for a person’s situation next time he or she is rude or inconsiderate to you, instead of getting defensive. They might be having a bad day or need to hear a kind word. This doesn’t mean to be a doormat, but to consider what someone may be going through and giving them a pass.

8. Organize a clothing or food drive with your neighbors for a local shelter. Your taking initiative to collect and distribute items to the shelter will not only make it easy for them to give, but will also inspire them while helping others.

9. Lend an elderly person a hand, if you see them struggle to reach something in the grocery store or while doing another activity.

10. Express your gratitude to a teacher or someone who has made a difference in your life. With a letter or in person, share with them how their kindness, support or a gesture has affected you and how grateful you are to know or have known them. You can be sure that you will make their day and even move them deeply.

11. Buy a dozen donuts or bagels for a sports team at a local school, a firehouse or police station.

12. Thank a service person such as your postman, military, a police officer or fireman for their hard work and dedication to serving others. You can simply say thank you or even create a special surprise for them. Check out Mukhtar’s birthday surprise, a bus driver who thought his birthday would be just another ordinary work day.

13. Talk to the person at the party who is struggling with socializing. You never know what incredible, life-changing conversation you may have with them.

14. Buy 10 lottery tickets and give them out to people on the street, wishing them good luck.

15. Take a child or group of children that you know on a special trip somewhere such as a zoo, the circus, a museum, or the local playground.

16. Cheer up a loved one by giving them an unexpected gift. You don’t need to spend a lot; it’s the thought that counts.

17. Hide notes of encouragement in your spouse’s or child’s lunch box or in a coat pocket, shoes or other place where he or she will receive this nice little surprise.

18. Start a campaign to help an individual or a group. 

19. Call someone who you haven’t talked to in awhile and let them know that you’ve been thinking about them and that you are sorry you’ve been out of touch.

20. Enroll your children in going through their toys and donating the ones that they don’t want. This teaches children to be of service at a young age. Bring them with you to the place where you will be making the donation so they can see the appreciation of the organization and feel good about themselves.


I now know that each day given to me is a Blessing. Even those days I feel I have nothing to feel Blessed about. I am alive, breath, laugh, walk, talk, smile. I have good useful hands to carry things to write words to share with others. To hold those close to me tightly and help others 

Educating the mind and heart 


Both the heart and the mind need educating, because both need to learn in order to be successful, compassionate, and happy in your life. If your mind is educated yet your heart is not then your education is not complete, and you are still missing out on important knowledge. Some of the wisest people through history were learned individuals with the necessary knowledge who also had an educated heart as well. Even the smartest person in the world needs an educated heart in order to have compassion for mankind, and to have sympathy and love on those who follow the wrong path or make choices which are not positive. Unless both the mind and the heart are educated together it is impossible to grow as a person and to better yourself in every way possible.

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. If you have a past with someone who has hurt or betrayed you before then your mind has already realized that the person is not good for you but it may take some time for your heart to learn this lesson as well. Educating your heart means having compassion for everyone, not just friends and family members. When we learn how to love everyone in spite of their differences and we make an effort to reach out even to our greatest enemies then we have an educated heart and we are the person that we hope to be. It is easy to feel love towards a parent or sibling, but educating your heart to feel this emotion for others takes some practice.
