Hello October… one of my most favourite months!

October is also an international bullying awareness month…

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop
.
🧡October is National Bullying Awareness Month. We are coming together as a community today to spread love and be a light to all.🧡

Bullying affects 1 in every 4 students in school. 64% do not report their experiences, and 90% who are bullied in school are also being bullied online.

Studies also show that 31% of adults are victims of bullying, largely through the tactics of gaslighting, exclusion, and spreading rumors.

There are things we can do to change this. 57% of bullying incidents stop when a peer intervenes, while incorporating school based education programs can reduce bullying by 25%. Above all, educating yourself and your family is the greatest difference we can make.

Join us today in sharing and tagging your images to #showup4bullyingawareness 🧡
