Green Giant is partnering with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center and We Day Minnesota to help parents Raise A Giant and put a stop to bullying in their community.
What Does it Mean To Be A Giant?
Being a giant isn’t about being the biggest or the best. Being a giant means standing up for others. It means lending a hand to those who are in trouble and speaking up for those who sometimes find it hard to speak up for themselves. Studies show that an effective way to stop bullying is for kids to simply speak up and say, “That’s not okay” when they see bullying happening. But asking kids to have the courage to stand up to bullying is a tall order and that’s why they need our help.
It breaks my heart every time I see the tragic results of bullying on the news. People don’t seem to realize how painful words can be. Children should be having fun and enjoying life, not living in fear and hating who they are because someone else decides to bully them and tell them that they are not good enough.
Schools, communities, and parents need to step up and teach our children that bullying is not right and it will not be tolerated. Bullying can be found everywhere. We have come a long way in recognizing it but we have a long way to go. I am often shocked by how many adults bully children and do not even realize how harmful that can be to the child.
