October is known for so much , & now it has been made the month for anti bullying awareness. I think its such a great idea to spread the word about bullying. I feel it has gotten worse and worse as the years go by, and it is affecting so many lives, that it should not be taken lightly any longer. I don't think people understand how deep their words can cut people. Working with kids I see a lot of bullying, unfortunately...and I just think about my son & what if its still this bad when he starts school. I don't want him to be on either side of it , the bully, nor the one being bullied. Its a very sad thing to see, because the bullies either don't see anything wrong with what they are doing , or they feel it will make them popular , or much more liked. I think its great to get the word out about it at a young age. I work with kindergarten kids, & I was so happy to teach them the importance of this. The fact that they some what understood what I was saying, & they were able to define a bully at the end of the day - made me feel 100 times better about the topic. I think if you keep on explaining it to them , they will see how important it is, and really take it in. A little goes a long way, and you just never know if your saving a life by doing so.
Here is a picture of me on the day of the event at my job. We all decided to promote awareness by wearing blue.
Here is also a cool bracelet I found on ebay. It read " Say no to Bullying " ! Love it.
