Because of You

Because of you is a movement that encourages teens to reflect on the power of their words and actions and consider how they are affecting others. The term bullying has come to reflect a specific situation that does not always connect to the general culture of meanness which many teens experience daily.  While only one-third of teens list bullying as a top concern today, twice as many say they regularly experience more specific behaviors like drama, teasing, and exclusion. Adults often talk about bullies, bystanders and victims, but the lines are not so clear. Every day, we all have the opportunity to make someone else’s day better or worse. By encouraging self-reflection and focusing on specific actions, our goal is to inspire this generation to create a more empathetic and inclusive culture around them. Because of You

 

Bystanders to Bullying

When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time. Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.
