Dear my girl, my boy, and my teen,

You three are so strong and so amazing. I’m proud of you every day. In this day and age of social media it’s hard to be a kid/teen. Everything you do or say can be broadcast. So please be sure to not share anything that will cause harm to another or yourself. Make sure that when you are walking the halls you are there for the little guy. The quiet one who stands alone. The one that’s being picked on and other kids are being mean too. Know that it’s not ok to be mean to kids and you need to take a stand when others are doing it to friends too.  Watch for the signs of bullying and be aware that others may not be as strong as you are. I love you and am proud of you as the strong children you are becoming. You both have such strong wills and spirits. You are sweet and kind with a funny wit too. I love how you are a friend to others and I pray you never make a child feel less than. You make me smile daily. Thank you for teaching me to be a mom and holding my hand as we find our way in this world. Let’s move forward and be there for others. 

Love,

Mom

I didn’t know how much I could worry until I had children. Now I’m a basket case trying to make sure that my kids are not being bullied or bullying. I’ve told my kids repeatedly that I will always be in their corner. On Friday my son went to a dance and the kids were being mean to him. He called me and said he wanted to come home and I hopped up and went to pick him up. The teacher was trying to talk him into staying and I was like, ” no it’s fine. He is coming home.” I want my kids to know that I have their back. I hate that they were being mean. But he knows I’m here for him. As long as I’m alive I’m going to ask them to stand up for others too. Check out this video about the RaiseAGiant program. You’ll be glad you did. 

Won’t you join us?

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.

How Do You Raise A Giant? 
We’re 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 our community at RaiseAGaint.com and read the letters others have written.

  1. I just tell them to not be afraid and to tell me or another adult if they are being bullied.

  2. Julie Wood says:

    When my son was younger, he was bullied. I told him to stay away from the bully. Do not get into an argument with the bully, and walk away from the bully. I also went to the School Principal when it would not stop, and the Principal and school counselor got it stopped!

  3. We teach them to never ignore if be bullied, must always tell adults.

  4. We had to teach my son how to stand up for himself and that it was okay to go to the police if the school wouldn’t listen.

    • Teressa Morris You are my winner! send me an email with all your information (name, address, email and phone so I can get your gift card sent to you!

  5. Ashley S. says:

    I would tell them that if they see anyone being picked on or hurt, to either speak up and tell that bully to STOP or go tell an adult.

  6. Shawn says:

    You need to make sure to talk to your children every day and that they know they can always come to you when something is wrong. They should know that there are people who will do mean things in this world, and if they see it or it happens to them, they should tell their parents or other adult that they know/trust.

  7. Lindsay P. says:

    I have always told my kids to use their words. Also if you need to walk away and get an adults help not to be scared to do that.

  8. Donna S. says:

    I have always tried to have my kids see it from the person being bullied. How would they feel if they were the ones being treated like that. Empithize

  9. I don’t have my own children, but I am a teacher. I teach my students through the actions of characters in books. We discuss the correct ways to handle situations, and how we would feel if we were in the character’s shoes.
