Did you know that more than 160,000 U.S. students stay home from school each day from fear of being bullied? (Source: Pacer.org)
I’ve found it interesting to watch how cliques form even in preschool and kindergarten. Every time I send my kid off to day camp or to school, there is a twinge of fear inside, that there will be sadness or worse at the hands of others.
Each school year (two now), I’ve read Momastery’s post to Esmé. About how each classmate, and even the teacher, is a gift from God. And how that heartache of compassion you feel sometimes is God whispering to you, “One of my babies is hurting! Do something to help!”
As this school year starts, I’ve got a Standing Up DVD giveaway for you.
Based on one of the most beloved Young Adult novels of all time and directed by the acclaimed D.J. Caruso, Standing Up follows two kids who get bullied by a vicious summer camp prank. Left together on an island, their adventure begins once they decide not to be victims, and instead they Stand Up!
Standing Up is an adorable and heart-warming gem of a movie with an important anti-bullying message that’s suitable for the whole family! Get the DVD now!
What can be done to help the bullied “stand up” for themselves?
One of the best things we can do to understand the problem and discuss solutions is to be inspired. The movie “Standing Up” is THAT inspiration.
