Green Giant is encouraging parents to "Raise a Giant". They are partnering with PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center and We Day Minnesota to help stop bullying in their community. with all the recent news reports of bullying, this is a concern parents should be acting on. Help your child to understand what bullying is and how they can help prevent it.
Teach your child to be a "Giant" by standing tall and speaking out against bullying. They would like you to write a letter to your child to help them be a "Giant". Here's mine:
To all six of my children,
Someday you may have to face bullying, or come across someone who is bullying another person. Since we do homeschool you will not be as exposed to this as some children are, but bullying can happen other places also, like the playground, sports activities, even at work. I want each of you to be aware of bullying which can take many different forms, from casual teasing that slowly grows to being out right mean or rude to another person.
Just as I never want you to experience bullying, I want you to be able to stand for others who are or have experienced bullying. I want you to be able to stand strong and tell the person doing the bullying that it is wrong. I want you to be a friend and an encouragement to the one experiencing the bullying and when necessary to go to someone in authority to deal with the problem.
Never allow someone to belittle you or anyone else and never participate in making fun of or belittling someone. It is much too easier to join in then it is to take a stand, but it shows a strength of character to take a stand for the right. So be a "Giant" and take a stand against bullying.
To my neighbors, take a minute to visit the Raise a Giant site and read some of the letters parents have submitted and then take some time to write a letter to your child/children.
General Mills is allowing me to send one neighbor a $25 gift card. Be sure to enter and then share this with others.
