Sue Scheff: BullyBust Your School

Florida was in the news a too much last school year for bullying.  From Duval County to Broward County, we heard about horrific events that involved school bullying.

We are weeks away from schools opening and bullying awareness is growing, take time to encourage your school and community to get involved in education for bullying prevention with BullyBust.

About BullyBust:

BullyBust is an awareness campaign designed to reduce bullying in schools by teaching students and adults how to stand up to bullying and promote upstander behavior. An upstander is someone who witnesses bully behavior and does something about it. Use the resources on BullyBust.org to transform your school or community from one of passive bystanders to a community of positive upstanders. Together we can put an end to bullying! 

Did you know that bullying can be reduced 50% when there is school wide commitment? Pass this information on to your school, encourage them to join the Partner School Program through BullyBust and receive the free starter kit.

Pass this on, don't delay, school is almost here and let's be sure the media isn't talking about bullying in Florida this school year.

Follow BullyBust on Twitter and join their Facebook group today.

Be an educated parent, you will have safer teens.
