Just one act of kindness can make an impact. Join the national movement to Choose Kind, inspired by R.J. Palacio’s debut novel, WONDER.
Bullying seems to be part of growing up. It only gets bad when the bullied are not empowered enough and there aren’t any supporters like parents, teachers to show him/her the way. I felt the way to get out of a bullying scenario was to stand up to them. Take the power out of the bully by not feeling bullied. I got to this point because I was just so tired of waiting for something magical to happen. I had to look out for myself and fight for myself. The bullying stopped when I didn’t let it happen to me. But kids need support: they need to know it’s not okay to be bullied. Parents, love your kids and tell them to stand up for themselves.
