‘BE KIND TO OTHERS’ WEEK, 13TH NOVEMBER.
An opportunity to encourage everyone to be kind to others. This is especially relevant in schools, to help children to understand the importance of kindness, especially to anyone who presents as different and outside a social group. This will prevent or deter bullying. Bullying through social media, with its ability to render perpetrators faceless and nameless, has increased the potential for bullying. Once children could at least leave the bullying behind at the school gates, now it intrudes via laptops and mobile phones with messages and texts.
If you know someone who is being bullied, or are being bullied yourself, whether you are an adult or under 16 years, please tell someone. Get the help and support you deserve.
