The elementary school my kids attend has a "be kind" theme. Each student at the start of the year received be kind shirts and they celebrate Thursdays as a "kiss bullying good bye - hug a friend". Any act of kindness is rewarded with a ticket and they can cash the collected tickets in for prizes in the school store. As far as the bully goes, its a no toleration of fighting, weapons, cursing, and bullying. Automatically sent home for first offense, second is 3 day withdrawal, and 3rd, I think is suspend for rest of the year. Staff has asked parents their thoughts and I offered that the person bullying e mad to be publicly shamed. Maybe having to wear a hue ridiculous sign, or a stand out shirt on Thursday while the other students have on be kind shirts. More definitely has to be done.

To shame them they should have to wear a shirt that says "I bullied someone and I am sorry for doing it" When the other kids see him or her wearing the shirt they will know they were not doing what they were supposed to.

I wish i had an older brother or sister. my older sister didnt care and it was usually her friends' little sisters that would bully me. Sucked major... But there are so many websites. BullyVille is great. Twitter has a lot of Anon help as well as advocates, such as myself. I dont want any young girl or boy to feel how i did, or million others do.

The list is so long.... the improvements that have occurred are amazing. If they had all this in place when I went to school, there would have been allot less bullying.
