What’s up, my people?
I want to talk to you today about something that I am very concerned about. Bullying. For the record, bullying is wack, and I DON’T DO IT! Why go out of your way to make someone else feel bad? I’ve been bullied myself, so I know how it feels. Not good. Let’s talk about what us kids can do to stand up against bullying.
- Set a good example – Don’t be a bully! It’s simple. Treat others how you would like to be treated. Don’t laugh at bullies, don’t even talk to them. Bullies love an audience, so don’t give them one. Remember, bullying is wack!
- Be a friend – It sucks to be bullied. It makes you feel bad, and most of all, you feel alone. Bullies usually pick on the kids who don’t have many friends. So, be nice to that kid who is being bullied. Sit with them at lunch, play with them during recess. You never know, you may find an awesome new buddy.
- Tell an adult – If you are being bullied or you know someone who is a victim of bullying, OPEN YOUR MOUTH! Tell an adult. Don’t be silent. It will only get worse if you are quiet about it. You may even be doing the bully a favor. According to my mom, bullies are usually unhappy about something and they don’t know how to deal. Make a difference!
Those are just a few of the ways that I think we can stop bullying once and for all. Let’s put our heads together and help each other. Share your stories and ideas. Stand up!
Welcome to my new blog! This has been an exciting week for me. First, it was my birthday on Monday (I launched my own company on that day, by the way). And now, my very own blog. Not bad for a ten year old, huh?
So, as you may know, my company is called Amazingly Awesome Kids Club. We promote self esteem and positive behavior to kids and adults. We have a pledge and everything. You should really check it out.
Anyway, back to the subject. I wanted to let you know that being amazingly awesome doesn’t mean that you have to be perfect. You just have to do your best, and work hard to be the best person that you can be. Being awesome is hard work, and sometimes we will make mistakes. I mean, after all, we’re kids! What matters is that we learn from our mistakes and try not to make them again.
Saying “I’m sorry” is important. Sometimes, we might harm someone accidentally. It may be an accident, but it still happened, so you have to apologize. Wouldn’t you want someone to apologize to you?
Remember, being amazingly awesome is being kind, respectful and brave.
Until next time… Peace!
