Kids these days live in a world that is bigger and scarier than the world we grew up in, and they need help and encouragement to navigate that world with confidence and pride.Unfortunately one of the hardest things kids have to deal with is bullying. When a child is bullied by a peer it can turn his or her life into a daily gauntlet of fear and anxiety. That’s why 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.
I tell my son all the time that he needs to be what he wants others to be. Like the golden rule. Unfortunately being a kid with ADHD and poor impulse control, he is bullied often. He is picked on everyday because he is always in trouble in class. I tell him to let the teachers know but they rarely do anything about it because he is a classroom disturbance. So I let him know that maybe these kids have more going on at home than we know. Maybe they had a really bad night and they are taking it out on him. I tell that he doesnt have to stand for it though and I am currently talking to principal about further action. He shouldnt have to go to school scared.
How Do You Raise A Giant?
They are asking parents to write a letter to their kids telling them how special they are and encouraging them to be part of the bullying prevention solution by being a giant. To get started parents can visit the community at RaiseAGaint.com and read the letters others have written.

I don’t have children but I remember when my nieces and nephews were young, and thankfully they did not have to go through that!
Yes, it’s important to talk about bullying to kids of all ages, but it’s necessary to do it in an age-appropriate way.

I think it’s never too early to start talking to kids ab out bullying and I think it’s most important to stress that they should never look away or ignore it if they see someone being bullied. Thank you.

Yes, I think it is important to talk to your children about bullying. My kids are not old enough to talk, so I have not talked to them about it. I will, though!

I talk to my oldest all the time about it. I have been since PK because I didn’t’ want him to be a mean kid and I want to make sure he’s safe. I think as soon as they are old enough to understand, we should be teaching them to be kind, loving children but also strong enough to know when they are not being treated right.
