Stop Bullying with Green Giant!! #Giveaway

It seems like bullying is a big issue these days. We avoid much of the problem by homeschooling, and carefully supervising the children's play with other children, but I have heard many horror stories of bullying taking place in local schools. One of the other students in our TKD school, for example, was kicked in the face on the school playground a couple weeks ago. It has certainly become a serious issue, and one that many parents seem unaware of unfortunately. So, when given the opportunity to share this news with my readers, I was happy to oblige. 

Green Giant is partnering with PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center, and We Day Minnesota, to help parents raise a "Giant" and stop bullying in local communities! I love what Green Giant is saying about this issue...


Being a giant isn’t about being the biggest or the best. Being a giant means standing up for others. It means lending a hand to those who are in trouble and speaking up for those who sometimes find it hard to speak up for themselves.
Studies show that an effective way to stop bullying is for kids to simply speak up and say, “That’s not okay” when they see bullying happening. 


Green Giant is asking parents to write letters to each of their children, sharing how special they are, and encouraging them to help put a stop to bullying. If you're not sure just how to write a letter to your kids about bullying, you can read letters other parents have written, by visiting www.RaiseaGiant.com.



Along with this important and timely message about how to stop bullying, Green Giant and MyBlogSpark are offering a giveaway for my readers!

  34. My one tip on how to stop bullying is actually a three-step process. Parents need to teach their children to be accepting of all; that it's okay to walk away; and to immediately go tell an adult plus their parents.

    I believe this three-step process helps them not to be bullies themselves by accepting others. Helps them avoid being bullied by walking away and brings any act of bullying to the attention of adults and parents by notifying them. Of course it is then up to those adults to take the proper actions.

  35. My tip is to encourage your child to understand that the bully is most likely disappointed in themselves and are taking it out on others. Don't give the bully that kind of power to let them get under your skin.

    Thanks for the chance to win!
