In a recent post on the popular Scary Mommy blog titled “Everyone Needs To Hear This 3rd-Grader’s Advice About Bullies,” mom Kimberly recounts her daughter’s experience with bullying—and credits PACER’s bullying prevention resources with helping her manage the situation.

Kimberly’s daughter Juliet was being bothered by a boy at school. At first Kimberly thought it was an isolated incident. As it continued to happen, she worked with her daughter on ways to deal with it.

“At first, it didn’t dawn on me that this was bullying. As the incidents trickled in, I coached her through them,” Kimberly wrote. “I don’t think I wanted to believe that she was being bullied.”

Kimberly then cites resources from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, including the “Parents Need to Know” page that includes a checklist to determine if your child is experiencing bullying.

Like so many parents, Kimberly wondered where parents draw the line between innocent annoyance from a fellow student and bullying behavior. Using PACER’s resources, Kimberly determined that her daughter was being bullied and she contacted the teacher immediately.

Kimberly says that the boy apologized to her daughter and the situation was handled well. She and Juliet created a video that talks about the experience and what they want other kids and parents to know about bullying.

Kimberly encourages parents to recognize the signs of bullying and communicate them to the teacher or other school staff as soon as possible.

“I hope that by sharing our story, we can help other moms and kids who are going through this,” Kimberly writes, “or, as my daughter said, may experience it in the future.”

Disney Junior is encouraging children to show kindness at home, school and within their community with this Kindness Kit available to download for parents and schools across the country. Disney Junior’s new series “Vampirina” tells the story of a young vampire girl who faces the joys and trials of being the new kid in town when her family moves from Transylvania to Pennsylvania. The series follows Vampirina (aka “Vee”) as she adjusts to life in the human world, including making friends and attending a new school.

TLC’s ‘The Little Couple’ discuss bullying

Posted: 9/14/2017

PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center is excited to partner with TLC for its #GiveALittleTLC campaign! To raise awareness of bullying prevention, Jen Arnold and Bill Klein, stars of TLC’s “The Little Couple,” have joined with PACER to make sure no child feels alone.

Both Arnold and Klein have rare forms of dwarfism and they are each under four feet tall. In the video, Klein talks candidly about his experience with bullying at school, which included being punched and knocked down.

“The emotional feeling of being an outcast weighs on you,” Klein says in the video. “You feel alone.”

Arnold and Klein have adopted two children who have forms of dwarfism, Will and Zoey. As parents, Arnold and Klein are aware of the similar challenges their children may face.

“All kids are at risk of experiencing bullying, and for Will and Zoey, they are even more high risk because they have a pretty obvious physical difference,” Arnold says. “I think it’s important for all parents to be aware of bullying and the fact that it’s not a minor thing.”

“Life is short, no pun intended,” Arnold adds. “You really deserve to enjoy it and make the most of it.”
