National Stop Bullying Day – Resources

Today is National Stop Bullying Day.

I thought I’d share some resources for you to check out with your kids or on your own – or both. Remember that early signs of bullying can begin at a very early age. Start talking to your kids early about bullying.

Bullying can take many forms

- Verbal (name calling and teasing)
- Social (spreading rumors, leaving people out on purpose, breaking up friendships)
- Physical (hitting, punching, shoving)
- Cyberbullying (Using the Internet, mobile phones or other digital technologies to harm others)

• Changes in eating habits
• Trouble sleeping or frequent bad dreams

• Frequent headaches, stomachaches or feeling sick.
