Local Restaurants Unite Against Bullying

Posted: 10/6/2015

Cate Street Seafood Station and The Boston Restaurant in Louisiana are spreading kindness, acceptance, and inclusion in their communities by inviting local high schoolers to visit their restaurants to take a pledge against bullying. The restaurants are sharing profits with the local schools on these special days and sharing resources from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.

The restaurants care about bullying prevention because “helping put a stop to bullying is very important to us, as parents, students, and partners in our community. It’s our goal to make a public show of support for those who suffer from bullying and to support our schools in their efforts to educate and empower students to stand together against bullying.” This is a great example of how communities can come together to show targets of bullying that they are not alone.

‘You Can Sit With Us’

Posted: 5/7/2015

While talking about kindness during class, 13 eighth grade girls discussed bullying and ways they could make an impact. They decided they would always stand up against bullying and wanted to take further action. From this discussion, the idea of raising money for a bullying prevention organization with a T-shirt sale was born. Each week, the girls spent time during class to create the shirt. As a group, they decided on the slogan “You can sit with us,” with a peace sign on the back. Each girl shared a word that described kindness, which was placed within the peace sign. Words included: strong, brave, confident, inviting, optimistic and supportive. Every week, the girls continued to discuss bullying and kindness, searching for new ways to improve their community. They will be selling the shirts during lunch hour and hope to see every student at their school wearing this message of kindness!

The Not Perfect Hat Club — Celebrating Each Child’s Unique Gifts

Posted: 4/10/2015

CritterKin’s “Not Perfect Hat Club” is an engaging, entertaining and delightfully playful way to teach kids that perfection is not an option. It grew out of CritterKin’s visits with elementary school students who repeatedly said negative things about themselves and their work. It was clear we needed to find a way to help the kids set their judgments aside and trust both themselves and the creative process.

In its first incarnation, the “Not Perfect Hat Club” was not a club at all, just a battered, green sun hat that Jena wore to class one day to make the kids laugh. When they asked why she was wearing it, she told them it was her “Not Perfect Hat” and asked them why it’s important to wear one. A lively discussion followed about what it means to be “Not Perfect,” in which the kids imagined and described their own “Not Perfect” hats.

The Not Perfect Hat Club has since grown into an illustrated CritterKin storybook, lesson guides and a variety of project based learning activities that encourage kids to throw perfection to the wind, trust themselves and explore their creativity.

$1 from every book CritterKin’s book sold will be donated to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
