Bullying can be an isolating experience not just for the kids involved, but for their parents, too. Fortunately, there is help. PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center offers “Helping Your Child” to guide parents to address bullying situations, including those involving students with disabilities.
The online toolkit “Stop Bullying Before It Starts” is the result of a PACER partnership with the team that developed “Spookley the Square Pumpkin,” a book for young children. Spookley is a square pumpkin who lives in a round pumpkin patch world. The toolkit provides links to free resources that teachers can bring directly into their classrooms
The word “bullying” often conjures up an image of a schoolyard scene, with a big, intimidating student towering over a small, cowering child. That’s just one face of bullying — and of children who bully. Another face of a bully might be … that of your child. Surprised? Many parents are. Often they have no idea that their child is harassing other children. Yet knowing the facts — and acting to change the situation — is vitally important in making the future safer for your child and all children.
A visual, age appropriate 14-page guide with easy to understand information. The guide provides the basics for talking with students about what bullying is and isn’t, the roles of students, and tips on what students can do to address bullying situations.

My daughter is currently being Bullied. My Pet hate has always been bullied. I have decided to meet with the head of the school to get to the bottom of this. I dont want to come to a website like this and read one day " I dont care I cant live with it anymore" like one of the previous posts here for a 13 year old in Beligium. That is the age of my daughter! Its so sad! I want to get to the bottom of it before it ever gets to that stage! It makes me so sad and so scared! I never bullied people at school. I never allowed it. But I am a string character. Some people did try and I did not like it...but I used to face people straight up and say BACK OFF!!!!! usually they did! But there were always some that were not able to do it...I used to take those kinds under my wing. I hope I can do the same for my lovely daughter! She is a good person. She wont say anything bad about the girl who is bullying her. Im so proud! I just hope we can work through this soon xxx To anyone out there hold out... you will end up being those bullies doctors or something like that one day! You will be bigger and better! To the little girl in Belgium be string and talk to an adult. You are worth so much! You are the world to someone! xxx

I care because during my first 6 years of Elementary, I was bullied. During my last year it was behind my back. I couldn't trust a lot of my friends, but I knew those I could trust, and I talked to them about it. They were a great help in comforting me and helping me stand tall and be proud of who I am. I watched a movie, and a girl like me grew up to have the highest possible security clearance!! I play violin and know that if I just stand tall and practice, I'll get better and make it big one day.

I care because,every single person is effected by thing problem, we all have been bullied and are the bully even if we don't know it. Saying "I'm not a bully so I'm preventing bulling" is a lie and a easy excuse to avoid the problem. We can stand together to change but we need to be willing to work together because together we are stronger,

My son will start kindergarten next year, and I do not want him or any child to be subjected to the same kind of misery I went through as a target of bullying. Changing the bully-or-be-bullied mentality will make our schools safer, our children happier, and us parents less worried.

Paying it Forward
Posted: Wednesday, June 17, 2015
When Matthew Messer of Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., saw a young teen being pressured by his peers, he stepped in to help the boy make the right decision. What Matthew didn’t know is that his kind actions were being filmed by the popular TV series, “What Would You Do,” which uses actors and hidden cameras to find out what people will do when they are put face to face with some of life’s most difficult dilemmas.
Since the show aired on ABC on June 12, Matthew has been praised for his compassion. Now, he is paying it forward by holding an online fundraiser for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. His company, Sunrise Solar Solutions LLC, is matching all donations up to $2,500!
PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center is excited to announce our new partnership with SurveyMonkey Contribute and a new way for anyone to give their support! Sign up and you will receive surveys by e-mail from SurveyMonkey customers who need your opinion. For every survey you take, SurveyMonkey will donate $0.50 to PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center, and you'll get a chance to win $100 in an instant-win game.
