Help Others

Do you see people with heart eyes? You see their hurt. You see what others have to offer (what they’re good at). Children who are bullied and who witness bullying need your help.
Bullying happens usually when adults aren’t around. Like at recess, at lunch, in the hallways, on the bus…Sometimes bullies use a computer to do cyber bullying. Sometimes a bully will ignore or torment a friend.
Many kids want to help, but don’t know what to do. Sometimes children are afraid to tell. They’re worried the bullies will hurt them.
Have you seen someone bullied? Were you able to stop the bullying without getting mean?
