5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
You “resolve” conflict. But you “stop” bullying. In bullying, victim does not go directly to bully. #BarbaraColoroso #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
Question: What if teacher/adult is bully – never confront alone – if teacher, go a level above them. Go up chain of command #ERASEbullying

System change requires teaching the adults in the system – adults need to be open to change – kids depend on us #ERASEbullying

Problem is if culture of mean is normal, bully can feel like he/she is not doing anything wrong. #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
If you tease a friend & he got upset, u would stop. But a bully would keep going. Diff is how u respond when person is hurt. #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
Diff of teasing & taunting – taunting one attacks another & gets pleasure from pain. Taunting is bullying. Teasing is not. #ERASEbullying

Challenge – kids who are bullies have #leadership skills, but we need to get them using their skills for good. #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
In a #bullying situation, we must own problem, fix it, learn from it & heal together. #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
Important step is bullies held accountable – Kids must see it handled at criminal level & discipline procedure in schools. #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
We can’t give kids all the lines to say, but brainstorm ideas & give them core-strength & wisdom so they know what to say #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
Give targeted kids opportunity to do good in other ways (but don’t put on an anti-bully committee) helping others helps them #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
Teach kids self talk. Tell them say to themselves “I’m a decent person. She’s sure getting her needs met in a negative way.” #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
Don’t tell #victim to ignore or avoid. Give words eg. “That was cruel. I don’t need this, I’m out of here.” #BarbaraColoroso #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
Empower victims so they don’t succumb to #bullying. Give lines to say – but there are some programs that give poor advice #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
“High status bullies are not as likely to be removed.” #BarbaraColoroso #ERASEbullying

When bullying includes behaviours such as extortion, assault, etc – use that criminal language as well as label #bullying – #ERASEbullying

5 Minutes For Mom @5minutesformom
#Bullying term has become so normalized – bullying is too common – becoming soft language – call behaviour what it is. #ERASEbullying
