October is National Bullying Prevention Month

Join the movement! The End of Bullying Begins with Me: that’s the message during PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month in October. It’s a time when communities can unite nationwide to raise awareness of bullying prevention through events, activities, outreach, and education. Resources from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center make it easy to take action.

PACER created the campaign in 2006 with a one-week event which has now evolved into a month-long effort that encourages everyone to take an active role in the bullying prevention movement. PACER offers a variety of resources to use during October — and throughout the year — to inspire, educate and involve others to join the movement and prevent bullying where you live. Check out all of the different events and activities and make plans to get involved.

I wrote about going back to school with bullies in august as school was just beginning. bullying has impacted our family in such that we have had family members who were bullied and some in fact did things that they regretted and one took his own life. bullying is terrible so happy to see there is a book that children can understand

  2. I love your book suggestions! Some of my favorite books on this topic are Twerp, Wonder, and The Bully Book by Eric Kahn Gale. This is such an important topic to educate children and parents on. Thanks for sharing!
