It's National Bullying Prevention Month.  Quite frankly, I can't even believe we have to have a month called this.  Bullying ruins lives at any age you are.  The statistics of bullying keeps rising in our school and it's just horrible.

In the USA according to the National Bullying Prevention on national-awareness-days.com there are about 160,000 students staying home everyday because they're afraid of being bullied at school.  Throughout the month your school will be asking your kids to wear orange for National Bullying Prevention Month.  I say let's wear it everyday.  Pull out that orange...orange pins, pencils, socks and anything you might have that's orange and take it or wear it proudly throughout the month of October.

We as Mom's and Dad's have to stop this.  If your child is being bullied this is a fantastic resource for us here in New Jersey njbullying.org.
