Ep 35: Anti-Bullying Advocacy with Chloe-Olivia

Whether you have children of your own or not, you are probably aware of the growing problem with bullying in school and via social media platforms. We see the negative impact bullying can have in a classroom and the life of a victim. Children as young as 10 years old are committing suicide as a means to deal with the pain they feel from being bullied. Others turn to violence against others, self-harming and even drug and alcohol abuse. 

As a parent I am often gripped with panic when I hear of yet another school shooting. We can't allow our fear to make us feel helpless. There is something we can do, we can start today. 

There are Anti-Bullying campaigns and rallies on school campuses all over the country. We can all do something to make a difference in the lives of not only the victims, but the bullies as well. 

My guest today is a 14-year old Anti-Bullying Advocate. She shares with us her own experience with bullying and the steps she and her parents took to turn things around for her.
