Today’s generation of students is ready to take action and uniquely positioned to prevent and stop bullying. What they need is education, support, and inspiration – and a creative program that will give them the practical skills to be part of the solution. The WE WILL Generation is an exciting new initiative that uses a students-teaching-students model.
New! An important book that offers real-world bullying prevention strategies for children at home, in school, and online. It contains the latest information and practical tools that can help parents and others take action against bullying. Written and designed by staff of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, the book was developed to help parents protect their child or someone they know from being bullied, and to help parents be proactive in their community in addressing bullying.

well, i care because i was bullied for a year and i hated it......It's wrong when someone think that they will better than you by beating you down. I'm glad that the person who bullied me didn't go to far because there are too many people in this world beeing bullied that can end up dead.
I will never understand why someone beat others just to feel good with themselves, it's really stupid and wrong.
Just remenber that you can't keep silence because is worse for you, be strong and always count with your family because they are an awsome help.

I care because I don't understand how someone can be so mean and feel okay about it. Sure, high school can be a really tough time fore everyone but that doesn't give anyone the right to bully someone else because they're different. There are other, healthier ways to get your anger out. There is no excuse for being a bully. I want it to stop.

But that didn't stop me from beileveing i Can't stop it from happening. Im young. Not a teen yet. But i am in elementry and these bullyings do happen, around school. On kid was getting bullied. and was so scared, he waited outside of his classroom crying and waited for the bell to ring. I want Bullying to stop.

I've been there, I have felt the pain. I know what its like to have nobody. I know the feeling of not knowing what to do because thing have gotten so bad. I know the feeling of wanting to speak up but being scared it will make things worse. I would get physical sick from cryng so much because of all the things I'd read online all the looks I'd get walking into school.I know things can get so bad and the pain is unreal to deal with but trust me things do get better. Even when your at your breaking point thinking that nothing is gonna stop it and always blaming yourself for being different and wanting hurt yourself because of it. But always remember you will get through it one way or another and it takes time but remember NEVER GIVE UP!!!

I have been bullied since I was in pre-school. Over the years it has gotten worse. There are these really snotty girls at my school and they don't like me at all. One time, I was walking behind one of them and all of the sudden she yelled, "Brake!" and stopped right in front of me. I have my friends and family and they understand what happens, but the teachers don't want to even listen to me. I told the school councelor what had been happening, with my friends, and nothing ever happened. I feel something should happen, but I doubt something will.
