Anti-Bullying Articles & Resources


Stories and articles about bullying prevention and support

Today is pink shirt day, a day intended promote awareness of bullying, spark conversations about bullying, and increase programs intended to prevent bullying.

Programs don’t work.

Programs are nearly always a bandaid solution.

What works is a full-scale school and division-wide culture change, and fundamental changes in pedagogy, policy, and philosophy.


My personal story

I shared my story is because I work with children who have been, or are being, bullied now. I want anyone who has been a victim of bullying to know they are not alone.


Stop gaslighting children

Being bullied is never the fault of the victim. Seems obvious, right? I think most people would agree with this statement if asked. Yet, being humans, what we say and what we do don’t always line up.

Stop Gaslighting Children


Pink shirt day

I don’t really have an issue with pink shirt day, per se. It’s a great way to increase awareness and to start conversations about bullying in schools and classrooms, but it will take a lot more than wearing pink shirts to end bullying.

What’s necessary is a full-scale school and division-wide culture change, and fundamental changes in pedagogy, policy, and philosophy.

Support & resources

I have compiled an extensive list of support and help available to anyone who is a victim of bullying.


Inclusion

Preventing bullying requires creating a culture of respect, acceptance, and inclusion. It means teaching children to embrace and celebrate differences, rather than merely tolerate them.
