Posted on 10/14/2014

The Round Lake Area Park District with the support of the Lake County YES Coalition is on a mission to STOMP OUT BULLYING.

By supporting BLUE SHIRT DAY 2014 the Round Lake Area Park District is creating awareness to the Bullying epidemic infecting many our childrens schools.

Today, STOMP Out Bullying" is the leading national bullying and cyberbullying prevention organization for kids and teens in the U.S. STOMP Out Bullying" focuses on reducing and preventing bullying, cyberbullying, sexting and other digital abuse, educating against homophobia, racism and hatred, decreasing school absenteeism, and deterring violence in schools, online and in communities across the country. It teaches effective solutions on how to respond to all forms of bullying; as well as educating kids and teens in school and online, providing help for those in need and at risk of suicide, raising awareness, peer mentoring programs in schools, public service announcements by noted celebrities, and social media campaigns. An additional focus educates parents on how to keep their children safe and responsible online.

Both the STOMP Out Bullying Program" and its Annual BLUE SHIRT DAY" WORLD DAY OF BULLYING PREVENTION initiative brings awareness and educates kids, teens, parents and schools about the issue. It offers hope for every student who experiences the harmful effects of all forms of bullying and teaches parents to keep open communication with their kids and teens and to look for signs. It also educates school administrators across the country, who have swept this issue under the rug for far too long. Funds raised for the campaign go towards helping students in need of help and at-risk of suicide, in-school education, public awareness and education, a dedicated web site, brochures and materials to assist bullying and cyberbullying prevention education and peer mentoring in schools.

Adults must empower the victims and help change the behavior of the bullies. Schools must react swiftly and redirect negative behaviors into positive and productive solutions. Bystanders who witness the assaults, harassment and threats must not remain silent. They must stand up for others. Parents must teach their kids and teens kindness, compassion and respect and schools must do the same. Our kids and teens need to know they are valued and protected.

The goal of STOMP Out Bullying" is to put an end to this crisis, to keep children of all ages safe and to create bullying prevention education and peer mentoring in schools. Please join us in our efforts to educate and advocate and most of all to STOMP Out Bullying"!
