Bully Self Defense The Smart Way – Compassion, Kindness, Confidence for Children

anti-bullying information

 

It’s not very useful to tell a child to avoid a bully if you can’t tell the child how to do so. Children need to understand there is a very specific course of action to be taken in dealing with bullies and dangerous situations.

Does your child know exactly what to do if he or she is being harassed by a bully? Do they know what to do if approached by a stranger?

These reports and articles can help you inform your child of what to do in such situations.

Press Release Stand4Change on Bullying

 

PR info for Stand4Change.org and “Defeat the Label”

The objective of the “Stand 4 Change” program is to get every student in America to stand up simultaneously at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time on May 4th, and pay a compliment to the classmate closest to them, thus making this the largest display of solidarity against bullying ever recorded.  This will be a national event that this generation of students will remember for the rest of their lives, much like the students who were old enough to remember “Hands Across America” in 1986.

Imagine as millions of students and teachers across North America “Stand 4 Change” to demonstrate their commitment to putting an end to bullying.  By participating in this event, that image will become a reality as we all stop, stand and let the world know that we will no longer tolerate bullying in our schools and communities.  Your participation in this continent-wide community action will show people across the globe that it is not only okay to stand up to bullying, it is the right thing to do.  Together, we can improve the lives of our young people, and help save lives in the process.

To be part of the program is extremely easy for schools and individual students.  All that is required is for schools and students to log on to www.stand4change.org and register.  There is absolutely no cost and the only obligation is to stand up at the designated time and extend a compliment.  The estimated time to complete the task should be no more than ten minutes.  It is our sincere hope that all Utah schools and students will get involved.

Goals of the program:

  1. Raise awareness for anti bullying.
  2. Create a viral buzz about the anti-bullying movement.
  3. Create the biggest group to ever stand up at one time.
  4. Create a memorable event that will go down in history.
  5. Make stand up 4 change an annual event and recognized “national day”

Justin Bieber Recruits Casey Heynes To Take Stand Against Bullying

Justin Bieber Recruits Casey Heynes To Take Stand Against Bullying.

Using the star power of one of the most popular pop artists in the world, Justin Bieber takes a stand on bullying. Justin Bieber is not only one of the biggest stars in the world, he is also the most hated and bullied, especially if you look at the comments and social media online.

Justin Bieber Speaks Out Against Bullying on Ellen
Appearing on the Ellen television show, Bieber took the time to make a video message speaking out against bullying and encouraging others to step in to help when they see bullying.

Bieber Reaches Out to Bullied Aussie Boy Casey Heynes
But that wasn’t the end for Justin Bieber. Despite his demanding schedule and touring, he reached out to bullied boy Casey Heynes. Casey became famous after a video of him slamming a boy to the ground after being repeatedly punched went viral. The outrage over his suspension from school resonated with people around the world as a clear case of self defense being demonized as “fighting” and the school punishing the boy clearly being bullied.

In this video, Bieber reports that he saw the video on TMZ and felt compelled to reach out. He flew Australian Casey Heynes and his family in VIP style to his concert and brought him on stage to drive home the message on bullying prevention.

Justin Bieber Bullied in School and Online

Bieber asked, “Was anyone standing up for you? (he continued)…More people need to stand up and do something… about bullying.”

A reporter chimed in asking, “Was bullying something that happened to you Justin? “Something that happened a lot for me. …In 6th grade I only had like two friends.”, said Bieber.

According to reports, Justin Bieber was the one who really wanted to find Casey and make the meeting happen. He wanted to have Casey help spread his anti-bullying message.

It is encouraging to see a young celebrity like Justin Bieber using his star power for a good cause. No doubt he changed Casey’s life forever. Justin showed poise and manners that are a stark contrast from what we are used to seeing from many young celebrities today. Kudos Mr. Bieber and thank you for sharing a message of hope and reaching out to kids to make a difference. All of us at Bullying Prevention Initiative International appreciate your voice of hope and positive message. We salute you and hope you will continue such positive work.
