Are you wearing blue today?
Monday, October 3 is Blue Shirt Day and everyone around the globe is encouraged to show their support for kindness by wearing blue.
STOMP Out Bullying is emphasizing National Bullying Prevention Month by having a Blue Shirt Day to celebrate respect, and kindness and that we need to put a stop to bullying both in schools, and online.
STOMP Out Bullying wants everyone to know that the kids who bullied are often labeled as ‘different’ but the truth is, everyone is different and we need to educate kids about differences and how to understand and be kind to each other.
I’ve had a dealing with bullying when it came to my oldest daughter. It’s not a fun thing to see your child go through, but she came out better on the other side and held her head high against those bullies. STOMP Out Bullying has many resources for helping kids cope, as well as their parents and also how to prevent it from happening. Things like the live HelpChat Line which is FREE and confidential for kids to use who are over the age of 13. It’s available to help kids make healthy decisions and reduce their stress. All of the volunteers are trained to assist these kids who are having feelings about being bullied, and helps with emotional support. Kids can talk about their safety, emotions and thoughts in a confidential way.
So stand up today, and wear blue to support STOMP Out Bullying and Blue Shirt Day. You can stand up for the entire month of October. Have you ever delt with bullying? What would you say to someone who’s engaging in bullying behavior? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
