Free Resources on Stopping Bullying

Bullying is a problem for many children. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Stop Bullying Now web site:

"Bullying is more common than many adults realize. Most studies show that between 15-25% of American students are bullied with some frequency."

This site provides a rich set of free information, games, handouts, cartoon books and videos for both adults and children. Topics like these are covered:
  • Characteristics of children who bully and those who are bullied
  • Best practices in preventing bullying
  • Effective ways for kids to respond to bullying
  • What parents and teachers can do to stop bullying
There is information and resources for starting a "Stop Bullying Now!" campaign in your school or community. You can also order a free copy of the Stop Bullying Now! DVD Video Tool Kit.
