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!
