Did you know up to 70 percent of students say they witness bullying regularly at school? October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and I wanted to introduce you to Committee for Children’s bullying prevention campaign, Captain Compassion: a bullying prevention superhero who helps families and educators communicate with kids about how to recognize, report, and refuse bullying. The Captain Compassion campaign website is home to approachable, research-based tips and tactics drawn from Committee for Children’s decades of work in the field of bullying prevention. It includes engaging comics, videos, and family resources focused on providing kids and adults with the tools they need to address a range of bullying scenarios and to feel empowered to activate their bystander power to help stop bullying.
Join me in support of bullying prevention by checking out the campaign site and sharing it with your friends and colleagues: www.CaptainCompassion.org
