Bully for you!

Bullying has hit home.  It probably has for many of you as well, either at home or in the classroom.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has created a website full of resources for kids and adults.  "Stop Bullying Now!" is a one-stop shop for help.  Kids will discover webisodes, games, and a list of things that they can do to stop bullying.  The resources aren't designed just for kids being bullied, but also address what kids can do who witness others getting bullied.  Adult resources include printable tip sheets and other sources of answers to questions.  Lists include bullying laws by state and a bibliography of print resources (some are designed with discussion questions specific to teachers).  Be sure to bookmark http://www.stopbullyingnow.hrsa.gov/adults/default.aspx (Adult Resources) and http://www.stopbullyingnow.hrsa.gov/kids/default.aspx (Kids Resources)!
