This is so scary. How did we let it get to this? There should be no reason why our children should have to endure such pain that they would result to taking their own lives. As parents, we have to stand together and protect our children from such hatred. We need to educate our children that Bullying will not be tolerated and there are consequences to such behavior. There is too much in this world–poverty, homelessness, racism, etc. Let’s not add Bullying to the list.

There are many resources that can educate you and your family on Bullying. As well as many organizations that you can get involved with to begin taking action. I have listed all the resources below. Take a stand today.

1. Stop Bullying.gov

2. International Bullying Prevention Association

3. The Trevor Project

4. Pacer Organization

5. GLSEN Organization
