Take a Stand

What You Need:

 

What You Do:

  1. Talk with your child about what it means to be bullied or picked on, and make sure you two have a shared understanding.
  2. Then, ask your child, "Have you ever seen someone be bullied or picked on? What happened?"
  3. Ask, "What are some things that can be done when you see someone being bullied? How does it feel to stand up for others?"
  4. Share a personal story about standing up for others, such as a time you witnessed someone being bullied and intervened.
  5. Show your child the pipe cleaners, and explain that they will be designing something that reminds them to stand up for others who are being bullied.
  6. Think of a symbol that will remind you to stand up for others, such as a flower, heart, or person.
  7. Using different colors of pipe cleaners, help your child bend them into the symbol they chose.
  8. Discuss how this symbol can be a daily reminder to take a stand. How will you support each other in taking a stand?
  9. Have your child place their creation on their desk or on a shelf to remind them to stand up for others.
  10. Introduce and read through the Ways to Take a Stand worksheet.
  11. Work with your child to complete the worksheet.
