How do you start an anti bullying campaign for any/all age groups?
I have a 10 year old daughter that has been a victim of bullying for the past year or so along with her 13 year old best friend. We (the friends mother and I) have contacted the school, and the police, and nothing has been done. We want the public in our community to be aware of what is going on and to get the word out and hopefully help put a stop to bullying before someone gets hurt! Please help if you can!
Often times many communities will have local nonprofit organizations who can help with these sort of events! We are located in Omaha, Nebraska and here is one organization in our area who does this sort of work...
At this website, type in your city and then click on it and it will pull up a phone number (usually simply 2-1-1) that you can call in your area. This number is a referral line for agencies and nonprofits in your area. They may be able to point you in the direction of a local organization who can help you raise awareness about this very important message.
There are also some national organizations who seek to raise awareness about bullying. Please check out the following organizations and perhaps contact them about how best to raise awareness in your area.
We hope these are helpful and can help you figure out how to bring up this important issue to the school. Also know that they is a documentary called Bully that is out right now that is very powerful. A screening in your community may be helpful as well.
Please take care and remember that you can call the Boys Town National Hotline 24 hours a day at the number below, free of charge to discuss any parenting issue. We are here to help, you are not alone!
