With school starting soon, it’s important that we educate our children, friends, communities on the harm and lasting effects of bullying. Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy. This August for Don’t be a Bully Month, let’s bring awareness to the harmful effects of bullying and join together and pledge to Stop Bullying and to Not be a Bully!
Visit StopBullying.gov to learn how to identify, prevent and stand up to bullying safely.
