I Care Because

I hate being bullied. Im a straight A+ honor student and im not even a geek.  I m called Ms perfect. For winning Original song awards and all sorts of stuff.  Im going to fight it and stand stong. 
Words hurt.

i care because, i have been bullied, its not good what so ever, it makes you feel like you are not wanted, but it's best to speak to someone, because i never, i am a young carer in my family, that's why i didn't have many friends because i never really went out, the girls that bullied me where not nice at all, i have now dropped out of school at the age of 14.. and i do regret it because i can't do much in life, and if your getting bullied you need to believe in your self and ask people for help, because there are so many people out there that will sit down an listen, and they will take action:). i am 1000% against bullying:)

I have been bullied all my life. just say this " who are you to judge the life i live? i know i am not perfect and i dont not live to be  but before you start pointing fingers make sure your hands are clean. ~Anonymous"

I care because I've experienced bullying first hand, and I know how hard it is to speak up. We need to give other teens the confidence and educate them about how important speaking up is. Now, after being bullied I have the confidence to speak up, however I wish I had it years ago. 

Kat, 15, WA

I am a victim of bullying. I have been bullied since 5th grade I am now a senior. I want to help others and let them know they are not alone. I am actually going to be going to college to learn phycology and help teens get through that rough time. In 2010 I tried to commit suicide because it had become so bad, I don't want to see any teen go through what I went through.

DISABILITY.GOV Features Bullying Prevention Resources

Posted: Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Disability.gov, a resource for people with disabilities, their families, friends and organizations that serve them, highlighted resources from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center in the August edition of the Disability Connection newsletter, “10 Things That Rule about Back-to-School.”

The start of a new school year is an exciting time for kids, but the prospect of bullying can be a burden on both first-time and returning students. In particular, children with disabilities may be at a higher risk for bullying. The PACER Center provides many resources to help parents and teachers talk to children about bullying, such as fact sheets on how to help your child recognize the signs of bullying or how to notify a school about a bullying situation.

What Happens When Bystanders Stand Up to Bullying?

Posted: Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Besmartbewell.com and PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center explore the important role bystanders play in preventing bullying.

Bullying and cyberbullying are a part of growing up today. Surveys show that nearly 30 percent of middle and high school students have been bullied at school and 43 percent have experienced cyberbullying in the past year.

Those witnesses, the bystanders, are the key to ending bullying, say experts interviewed by besmartbewell.com. “Bystanders have a powerful influence in preventing bullying,” says Julie Hertzog, director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. “It has such power when peers are saying, ‘nobody deserves to be harmed; everybody deserves to be treated with respect.’”

In two new videos at besmartbewell.com, bullying prevention experts and high school students offer tips for how bystanders can stand up to bullying. Watch Bullies and Bystanders: What Teens Say and Bullies and Bystanders: What Experts Say.
