Do u even now?

The girl you just called fat? She has been starving herself & has lost over 30 lbs. The boy you called stupid? He has a learning disability & studies over 4 hrs a night. The girl you just called ugly? She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her. The boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home. There's a lot more to people than you think. Put this as your status if you're against bullying

  • Growing up my mother always told me to never make fun of others because you never know what they are going through at home. I thought of that saying often in school and it has stuck with me through life...

  • I have never judged a book by its cover. I actually tried to make friends with a girl in my 5th grade class and she wouldn't be my friend b/c I knew the girls that picked on her. What she didn't know is that I stuck up for her ALL the time.

  • You as the parent can do something about bullying. If the school will not do anything about it GO TO THE SCHOOL BOARD. If they refuse to do something about it call a lawyer. If the child is disabled in any way get a hold of what called. Dizzy. They are lawyers who deal with handicap children. Even if they are not handicapped then still follow the same procedures. Your children are our furture. It's out job to try to protect them with whatever means we have.
