Join Disney Junior and PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center to explore and inspire what it means to choose kindness! 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. Along the way, Vee learns that it may be easier to blend in with her peers, but it’s more valuable to celebrate the qualities that make each individual unique.

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.”

PACER Center Executive Director Paula Goldberg (center) with Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity founders Drs. Bennet and Sally Shaywitz.

PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center is featured in the July 2017 newsletter article “Director’s Corner: Dyslexia and Bullying — Intersection Points.” Quoted from the article, “Far too often dyslexia is not identified, the word not used and the associated symptoms not addressed, leading to situations where dyslexic children who are asked to read aloud in class are shamed and embarrassed. This frequently leads to bullying. In fact, we have met far too many dyslexic boys and girls who are victims of bullying. We are buoyed by the potential positive impact on both dyslexia and bullying prevention emerging from joint initiatives by YCDC and the PACER Center.”

Tegna and Points of Light, the organizations who run National Make A Difference Day, recently presented the All-Star Award to the Loukoumi Make A Difference Foundation. The foundation is a partner of PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center.

Based on the Loukoumi book series by Nick Katsoris, about a fluffy little lamb who wants to make the world a better place, the Loukoumi Foundation teaches children to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others. Last October, more than 50,000 children nationwide did good deeds, including many projects involving bullying prevention. Children were encouraged to wear orange to recognize the day and the color of bullying prevention.

The Loukoumi Foundation also teamed up with PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center on its Make A Difference with Loukoumi TV special that aired on FOX stations nationwide. The special, which was hosted by celebrity chef Cat Cora, included a public service announcement for the National Bullying Prevention Center and PACER's Kids Against Bullying Pledge.

This year's National Make a Difference Day is October 28, 2017.
