Don’t Be A Bully Bystander

This is part of the series of back-to-school posts which will continue into August to help you and your little ones prepare for the annual September routine. Click the “school” tag for more.

Did you know that 56% of students have personally witnessed some type of bullying at school?  Bullying is never “Okay”! If you see someone being bullied, take action:

  1. Speak up! Never be a bullying bystander!
  2. Be a friend to the person being bullied, set a good example for your peers! Try to imagine how you would feel if you were the one being bullied.

If your child is being bullied, Beaumont Health System has the NoBLE program (No bullying, live empowered). For more information, click here.

    Erica, Thank you for posting this very important back-to-school reminder! How wonderful that Beaumont has the first hospital based anti-bullying program. Way to go Beaumont for leading the way on bullying prevention.
