Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because it's very hurtful, embarrassing, and this is something you don't ever get over. It sticks with you forever and can really damage a person, plus it can make you think "Whats wrong with me?" Kids should not know the pain of bullying. Kids are all equal and should be nice to one another. Bullying can ruin a kid's life, and make them feel scared to do anything. So much could happen due to bullying. People should think before they speak. Words are very hurtful if used the wrong way. Please be kind to one another and treat people the way you want to be treated.

  • I care because it's wrong to Hurt someone physically or emotionally. And, I also care because I have been bullied from K-garden to 6st grade! And, the only reason I was home schooled is because I was being bullied for way too long. And, others that are being bullied, don't let them take you down. Don't let their words get to your head or heart ❤ ! Their words may hurt you, but don't let them get to you! No one is perfect but, you are perfect just the way you are, no matter what they say to hurt you, its not true so don't believe it. Your unique,smart,talented and so much more. So enjoy your life as it is, because the bullies won't be around you forever. Be you and be unique! 🙂

  • I think that when people get bullied they get hurt and they sometimes even believe things that bullies say about them which are not even true. It hurts their feelings and they sometimes also get afraid of them and don't want to come to school. Their self-esteem and confidence gets lower.

  • Because bullying is not good for everyone and for me too.

Meet the Crew!

  • Hey, you. Yeah, you. I’m Brad. Rhymes with bad. You know what my favorite thing is? Making babies like you cry. Don’t even think about telling the teacher I said that. If you do, I’ll give you something to really cry about.

  • ¡Hola! I’m Carmen! Not many people know this, but I have epilepsy. The signals in my brain get mixed up. Sometimes I space out. I take medication so it hardly ever happens anymore. But once it happened at school. Some kids made fun of me. I felt so bad. I don’t want anyone to feel that way.

    When I see kids picking on other kids, it makes me so mad! Usually I just grab some friends and we march right over and say, “stop it!” Together we can stop bullying.

  • Hi. I’m Chandra.

    I just moved here with my mom and dad and little brother. He has autism. I don’t really know many people yet. But I see a lot of things going on. Like kids being picked on because they’re different.

    It’s just wrong. I try to stop it–even if I feel afraid. Two things I know for sure: Nobody likes bullying, and everyone deserves respect.

  • Hi, I’m Jay.

    Yep, I use sign language. That’s because I’m hard of hearing. My hearing aids help a little, but I don’t hear like most people. When I talk, people have trouble understanding me sometimes. But you know what’s cool? I can read lips! It’s, It’s like being a super spy!

    Maybe you could come over sometime. We could watch TV! I could show you how closed captioning helps me understand what they’re saying.

  • I’m Matt. You got something to say?

    Hey, I’m better at sports than you’ll ever be. Hit a grand slam in Little League last year. I scored the winning run! Bet you couldn’t do that in a million years. I’ll probably do it again this year, if I feel like it. Yeah, I’m the best hitter on the team. On any team. Better’n you, that’s for sure.

  • Hi! I’m Mickey. I have Down syndrome. Sometimes when I talk, you might not understand me. But I usually understand you. In school, I am in special ed classes.

    I LOVE baseball. I even won a medal! Cool!

  • My name is Molly! Want to play with me at recess?

    I like it when kids have fun together. Sometimes I see kids being picked on, and I feel scared. I want to make it stop, but I don’t know what to do. Do you ever feel that way? No one has picked on me yet. I don’t know what I would do if they did. Usually I try to hang around with my friends, ‘cause together we’re amazing!

  • Hi! I’m Mrs. Bridge. I’m so glad you’re here! I hope you have fun and learn a lot about how to stop bullying.

    I have a little secret. When I was your age, kids picked on me. It’s true! That’s because I had a disability called ADHD. That’s short for “attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.” I even landed in trouble with my teachers. And now I am a teacher!

  • Hi, I’m Nick.

    Am I the only one who isn’t sure what to do when someone’s being bullied?

    I wish people could just get along like me and my friends. Sometimes I see a kid being picked on and I don’t know what to do. I feel really bad. Should I tell? Should I try to stop it? If I do, will the kids doing it come after me? Or will I be blamed? I want to do something, but sometimes I just feel helpless.

  • My name is Pipsqueak. You can call me Pip!

    Before I came here, I lived in a pet shop with about a gazillion other hamsters. I was the littlest one. Boy, did the other hamsters let me know it! They teased me and called me names. Hamsters can be so mean! That’s where I learned something about bullies: They just want you to cry and feel bad so they can feel powerful. Know what I did when I was picked on? I just twitched my nose and said, “Pifflesticks!”

  • Hi, I’m Sally! I have cerebral palsy. My muscles don’t always do what I want them to do. But I have this cool red wheelchair. I can go just about anywhere and do almost anything. Last summer I even went to camp and went horseback riding! It was so fun.

    Do you like computers? I do. A lot! You should see me surf the Web and play adventure games. I’m awesome!

  • I’m Shannon—but I’m sure you already know that. Don’t you think I’m, like, the coolest girl in school? I do. Do you like my new cell phone? Maybe I’ll use it to take a picture of that new girl. I could post it on the Internet with a message about what a loser she is.

    Good thing my older sister, Marla, and her friends haven’t thought of doing that to me. They are, like, so mean! Marla even told one of my friends that I still suck my thumb at night. I do not!
