Take Anti Bullying Pledge Say No - Words Hurt Put an End to Bullying Now TakePart Campaign


For years the media has pushed it into the forefront of our kids' minds as well as those of us parents, both moms and dads. You'd think with all this awareness enough has been said about bullying in real life and cyber bullying online and it would seem that we can't do anything more.

The statistics unfortunately say otherwise: 20% of all students in grades 9-12 are experiencing bullying*. And that doesn't even include all the boys and girls in middle school and younger. Most definitely there is still so much more work to be done to protect our kids from something that harms them and could potentially kill them emotionally and even physically.
