No Name-Calling Week

Monday, January 24, 2011

No Name-Calling Week is an annual week of education activities aimed at ending name-calling of all kinds and providing schools with the tools and inspiration to launch an on-going dialogue about ways to eliminate bullying in their communities.

For more info you go here Book ♥ Soulmates they have more links for more information..

It just breaks my heart how mean people can be to eachother. Or how young kids start off being bullies and getting bullied!! Even adults do it!! What is wrong with people. If you kid is doing it then its a parents responsibility to do something. Or else they may grow up to be the adults that do it. And some kids do not go home to loving support and take things so personally that they suffer so much or they go to the extreme and take their own lives.

I am not a person who can put words out beautifully. But I think you get my point.

Here is a story from my son on the school bus...

They were riding home on the bus and this boy in the seat in front of him was picking on this girl. She has a red face so he kept talking to her about it. Saying stuff why is your face to red and making mean comments. So my son said she was just getting more red. Then the boy snatched her glasses and the girl started crying saying they were expensive and that she would get into trouble if something happened to them... And guess what my son got up went in the boys seat got the girls glasses back and would not let the boy by her. Then when they boy kept talking he took his book bag and threw it in the back. SO the boy left and only then did the bus driver get involved because the boy stood up out if his seat. He only got into trouble for that though.

When my son told me he was like why do people make fun of eachother. He was upset because the girl was going to cry and no one was helping her. I was really proud of him for helping her.

Oh and these are elementry kids my son is 9!! I am just glad there are still kids out there who will stick up for one another!!!


  1. Wow, that's a wonderful story :) It warms my heart to know that you're raising your son to be caring & helpful to others!!

    I remember being picked-on on the school bus just like that little girl and I wish I had someone to stick up for me! Seems like your son is going to be a very good friend :)

    What does upset me a bit though is that the bus driver didn't catch on sooner. I understand he has to focus on the road and can't keep an eye on all the kids, but I think its the responsibility of the adults to set the example that mistreating each other is wrong!

    Thanks for sharing your story!

  2. Yeah, I do not understand how the bus driver doesn't see these things. I am just really happy she had someone there to help her out.

    I know schools are trying to stop bullying and I don't know how they really can. Every adult and especially parents need to be involved. I think it starts at home and I really wish parents with kids that are the bully's would really step it up. Its not fair for the rest of the kids to have to be around that.
