Have you taken the pledge? NEA’s Bully Free: It Starts With Me pledge? It’s easy to do. It’s important to do. Every week I speak to a different adult about the experiences they received from bullies in school. Those scars are deep but you can be the “one” person in someone’s life that helps them focus on good things, not just being bullied.
Simply go to http://www.nea.org/home/Bullyfree-Take-the-Pledge.html Fill out their pledge form so that you can be that one caring adult in their lives who makes a difference.
“I agree to be identified as a caring adult who pledges to help bullied students. I will listen carefully to all students who seek my help and act on their behalf to put an immediate stop to the bullying. I will work with other caring adults to create a safe learning environment for all the students in my school.”
Once you fill out the form and take the pledge, you’ll receive an email about receiving a free poster and button plus access to NEA’s resources online where you can find in-depth resources related to bullying, research-based guidance for helping bullied students, and web-based resources at www.nea.org/bullyfree.
