Support training for young women at the Homegirl Cafe, as they learn urban farming techniques and grow organic produce while leading community workshops on gardening and nutrition in low-income communities and in low-income schools (Help Girls Move...
Shranna's insight:

I came across this article while searching for topics on nutrition in schools. I think this is a great way to allow people to start a safe and postive lifestyle disregarding their past. I think it is a wonderful idea to help organize a workshop for a low income neighborhood in order to have an education.

Why We Have a Bullying Problem | Modern Alternative Mama

Why We Have a Bullying Problem | Modern Alternative Mama | Bullying | Scoop.it
There's been a lot of focus in the last several years (really, since Columbine in 1999) on bullying, mostly in schools. Why is bullying so rampant? How do we combat it? Why does it seem to be getting worse?
Shranna's insight:

This blog gives a nice insight about what Kate (author) thinks. I think it is important to be aware of how we behave in front of young kids. I can't agree more with this blog because anything negative is a form of bullying and it needs to be silent.

Stop Bullying Me: What Can We Do to Protect Our Children’s Welfare

Stop Bullying Me: What Can We Do to Protect Our Children’s Welfare | Bullying | Scoop.it
The statistics on bullying and suicide are extremely alarming. For every suicide among young people, there are at least 100 suicide attempts.

Via Elizabeth Milovidov
Shranna's insight:

I think it is hard to control where and when bullying occurs but being mindful and finding alternatives for bullying to stop is a must. I do believe that bullying which links into mental health should be a topic that is heavily addressed in grade school. I think schools should do more than assembles and short presentations when it comes to bullying. I think as much as sex education is essentially looked upon, bullying ( depression, anxiety, and etc) should be taught more in depth.

Bullying in children: when parents are the bul - http://t.co/UbXzzorOqc
Shranna's insight:

The reason to why I felt this article was revelant to my section on 'Bullying' is because I believe that the confidence level of a child and the behavior that the kids conduct come direc tly from the parents/ guardian. Although, I believe my statement is very strong and I put a lot on the parents but I think it makes sense  that the way a child expresses themselves toward others is a slight reflection of how they are treated at home.

Mother of bullied teen hopes to change Florida's laws - U.S. News | Bullying | Scoop.it
A mother in Florida is looking to put a stop to bullying and cyberbullying, after her 12-year-old daughter jumped to her death last year. Rebecca Sedwick, a student in the Polk County School District, was often the victim of ...
Shranna's insight:

I find it heartbreaking to read about the intensity of bullying in schools. I think having a law dedicated to Rebecca gives awareness to the county. I believe the law is a strong source to show how serious bullying is and the consequence that follows . Bullying has been an issue in school systems for a long time and I believe a lot of countys are trying their best to address this issue. The world becoming technology dependent/savvy it is essential to be mindful of not just bullying in schools but also through the internet.

Self Harm Addiction - YouTube

Part of a project for school that my friend and I did. (I recently made a video for a school project about self harm. it’d be great if you watched it.

Via in-recovery.com
Shranna's insight:

I think self harm ties together with bullying. In this short clip it states that self harm is an addiction and it starts from the people around the victim. When youths are watching their idols harm themselves I think it creates a connection where they are not alone. I think self harm and mental illnesses should be more open to prevent bullying. The more we neglect mental discomfort I think it drives a child to rage in violence or harmful behaviors.

Shranna's insight:

When I was attending middle school I remember learning the gist of Sex Education but never about mental health.- or at least in depth. I think school systems concentrate a lot on common cores (math, english, science, and etc) but neglect to concentrate on the mental well beings of students. I think neglecting to address topics on the conditions of a student will result in poor perfomance in school and violent actions.

The parents of the 5th grade football team at a school in Bridgewater, Massachusetts have plenty to be thankful for this year, as their boys took a stand against the bullying of a younger student.

Shranna's insight:

This is a beautiful video and story. Although these kids know one of their friend is different they treat him no different. I am sincerely happy for him. I believe we should acknowledge and reward more kind acts in order to let kindness grow.

Young boys band together to take a stand against bullying and protect a victim. This goes to show that good goes so much farther than evil, and it's so much more fun to be good too!

spencer fouracre wootten's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:04 PM

I have seen this video on YouTube and it touched my heart. Thses boys love this kid who is different from them, and they all stood up for  him. He was getting picked on for wearing nice clothes like a suit and tie. His friends all wore a suit and tie to prove that they love him and won't stand for this to go on anymore. It is a heartwarming story that shows how loyal friends can be.
