Susan here… I’m passionate about helping to put an end to bullying and I’ve watched many anti-bullying videos. The short video below brought tears to my eyes. Please take a moment to watch and share it.
Bullying ENRAGES me!!!
To think that countless children’s lives are destroyed and often ended because other kids chose to bully them is outrageous.
Social media turns this long standing problem into a full scale epidemic. And it’s up to us as parents, educators and social media power users to force a CHANGE!
Empower kids to #ENDBULLYING
There are no easy answers, but we must push forward to create change.
Kids in the House interviewed children from the Los Angeles area that have experienced bullying, as well as leading experts, to explore how to stop bullying, and to get clear advice on what to do when it happens.
“I’ve been asking myself: why are so many negative comments posted online every day, and how are kids affected by seeing all this negativity?” says producer and director Leana Greene. “How do you explain to your child the importance of being kind online, when it’s hard to find even one YouTube video without a negative comment? Suicide is the third leading cause of death in young people, resulting in 4,400 deaths every year [according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention]. We have to teach our children that words can kill, both in person and online.”
“We discovered that there is no simple fix to end bullying, but we hope to play a role in keeping the conversation going. We think everyone should take a close look at their words and actions online,” says Leana Greene.
Let’s join Kids in the House and share the message… Empower kids to #ENDBULLYING.
