CONFLICT IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CHANGE – EMBRACE IT

BULLYING IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PROBLEM SOLVING – SEIZE THE MOMENT AND SPEAK OUT

Where do children learn to bully? Sometimes from their siblings, their parents, other family members or adults and sadly sometimes from their teachers. They hear negative opinions about first nations communities, immigrants, refugees, black and brown people. They listen to adults and their peers put down people who are homosexual, lesbian, queer and transgendered. They watch adults and their peers  laugh at people who are over weight,  who have a disability, and or are poor. Children bring what they learn onto the school play ground, and into the classroom. Bullying can be so intense that many young people have taken their lives and other have been mentally and emotionally hurt.

Our children every day are learning to bully in Canadian Schools. Bullying in Canada is as prevalent as in the USA.

THESE ARE  UNNECESSARY DEATHS – STOP BULLYING NOW

BULLYING CREATES OUR NEW POLITICIANS, LEADERS, TEACHERS, PARENTS, ADULTS IN THE COMMUNITY – STOP BULLYING NOW

Philip Larkin – This Be The Verse

They .... you up, your mum and dad.
  They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
  And add some extra, just for you.

But they were ...... up in their turn
  By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
  And half at one another's throats.
