littlepoppits says NO to bullying.

Bullying is such a common action amongst children and even adults today.  Thankfully, it has been brought out into the open more in the last 10 years or so, especially here in Australia.  I’m not familiar with how openly spoken about it is in other countries.

My son’s school has a zero tolerance towards any kind of bullying.  They participate in the Alannah and Madeline Foundation (keeping children safe from violence) Bullying and Cyber Safety program.

It’s fantastic as they have a “Buddy System”.  My son started Prep last year and each Prep student is allocated a “Buddy” who is in Grade 6 (the big kids of the school).  The bigger kids really look after them and it helps the little ones not be afraid of bigger kids and helps them a lot with their confidence to speak up if someone treats them nastily etc.

I must admit, bullying was one of the things I worried about as a parent, when your child is about to begin school.  I’m just glad the school my Husband and I chose for him, has this program in place and it works very well from what we’ve seen so far.

If you would like to find out more about this program just see this link:

Even if you aren’t in Australia, the website could provide you with some ideas that might be able to be implemented into your child’s school.

I definitely say NO to bullying.
