I really liked this website because it was really useful and entertaning for kids and adults. You can find games about bullying that kids can play which will increase their self-esteem and will help them stop the bullies. There were lots of topics about bullying like for example, how to handle it or who is the victim and how that person can controle it and also innocent bystanders!

Students Demand Stronger Bullying Laws At The Capitol

Students Demand Stronger Bullying Laws At The Capitol | Dealing with Bullying | Scoop.it

Students against bullying rallied at the Capitol Saturday, demanding tougher laws against bullying.  It's the students who are taking the stand!  It's the students who are enforcing the law!  It's the students who are trying to make thier schools a better place!  Again, it's THE STUDENTS dressed in orange! 

The idea for the rally started with a public policy class at Mounds Park Academy. Four seniors formed a group called Students Demanding Change, and they partnered with the PACER Center, a Minnesota-based anti-bully organization, to hold the rally.

“The students’ voice isn’t really heard on the issue of bullying prevention. It’s usually just legislators talking about it. We wanted to have our voice out there, because it is a student issue.”

Every day, more than 160,000 kids miss school fearing an attack or intimidation by other students, according to the PACER Center.

It takes courage to rally at the Capitol.  It takes courage to stand up and be heard.  It takes courage to go to school.  Student's shouldn't feel scared or intimidated while at school. 

As a teac'her, it's good to back your students on some causes and this cause on taking a stand on bullying would be one of the better choices you can make. 

With bullying becoming such a topic on the hot stove, it's time to cool things off.

I agree it is time to act--not to ignore the concerns of these students which are legitimate, and if anything understate the problem of bullying--I love this though--students taking action to control their world

I love that students are taking a stand against bullying. Students are the ones effected by it so they should have a voice against it!

I like that the article's author realizes that kids will be kids but teasing becomes bullying when it is repetitive or when there is a conscious effort to hurt another child, wether that be emotionally or physically.
