I thought I would share with you some interesting statistics on how often bullying happens in our schools:
* More than 160,000 children stay home from school each day from fear of being bullied. And these are only the ones that tell their parents that they are being bullied.
* 77% of students are bullied mentally, verbally and physically
* Playground statistics (my worst nightmare as a child) Every 7 minutes a child is bullied.
* Bullying is the most common form of violence.
I thought these were amazing statistics and worth sharing. I also would like to give children a way to stop being bullied. My next blog will relate a true story and what unusual method works. CJ at work!!!
Have a good night and write to me!!! Karen
