If you’ve been following Utah Valley Moms, you may know that we recently watched “Nowhere Safe” which is a locally-made movie speaking up against bullying. As my children get older and I’m aware/seeing more bullying, it’s something that is a serious concern of mine. We need to teach our children about bullying and become more proactive for those around us.
I teach a few children in my neighborhood and just a few days ago I witnessed a lot of bullying in my own class! It was hard to believe that a bunch of 4-6 year olds were being so mean to each other. I know their parents, some of them more than others, but I know that their parents wouldn’t encourage bullying. It just seemed to happen in my class. So we had a discussion about bullying and treating others with respect, no matter what their differences.
I just watched (and cried through) this Britain’s Got Talent clip:
Let’s stop the bullying!
