Help Kids Stand Up to Bullying and Raise A Giant #MyBlogSpark #spon

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 Posted by Dina N

As a parent, I worry about bullying. I often talk about it with my kids and make sure they know what to do when they see a bully in action. I know bullying has many faces and can happen anywhere. It can be devastating, and it's so important to provide support and encouragement to children so they can stand up to bullies.

Information, content and a prize pack for this post have been provided by Green Giant® through MyBlogSpark. A donation was made to the PACER Center for Bully Prevention.

That’s why Green Giant® is partnering with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center and We Day Minnesota to help parents Raise A Giant and put a stop to bullying in their community. Together, they develop the We Will Generation, an in-school student-to-student curriculum helping students understand how they can handle bullying.

What does it mean to be a giant? Being a giant is not about being the biggest or the best. Being a giant means standing up for others. It means lending a hand to those who are in trouble and speaking up for those who sometimes find it hard to speak up for themselves.

Studies show that an effective way to stop bullying is for kids to simply speak up and say, “That’s not okay” when they see bullying happening. But asking kids to have the courage to stand up to bullying is a tall order and that’s why they need our help.

Write a letter to your kids, telling them how special they are and encouraging them to be stand up to bullying by being a giant. To get started, visit RaiseAGiant.com and read the letters others have written.

    Sadly, school-age bullies often grow into adult bullies. There has been a lot in the news lately about harassing and bullying within pro football teams.
