Of all the challenges that school brings for students and their parents, one of the most unwelcome and worrying is bullying.
Bullying starts as early as first grade and peaks in middle school. About 1 in 5 students report being bullied each year, and figuring out how to respond is difficult. A parent’s first impulse—whether to fly into a rage and call the bully’s parents or dismiss the whole thing as “kid stuff”—is not necessarily the right path.
There is new understanding of bullying as a complex, multifarious problem that doesn’t lend itself to one-size-fits-all responses. Educators and psychologists are placing more emphasis on teaching students coping skills, encouraging children to tell adults when they’re bullied, and having parents work with teachers and school administrators to resolve problems.

There’s an organization in St. Louis that’s doing incredible work and making a difference by helping break the cycle of hate in our world. They’re called HateBrakers and they’ve begun their search to find nominees for their 5th Annual Hero Awards in 2017! Do you know someone that you feel should be nominated for this award?
“The search has begun for HateBraker Heroes for our 5th Annual Hero Awards honoring Victims (targets) bystanders (witnesses), and perpetrators of acts of hate–from bullying, abuse, cyber-hate, violence to genocide–to become leaders, healers and heroes. The fifth celebration will be a big one, so we’re getting into gear early.
Go to Hatebraker.org for details on how to nominate a hero you know.” -HateBrakers
Children repeat, and grow up to become, what they see. BE a good example!
Incredible video (“Violence Against Women – Let’s Stop It At The Start“) and article (“DO AS I SAY, AND AS I DO“) Excerpt:
“From the age of about 9 or 10 to the early teenage years, children are completely immersed in family life. Family decisions, parents’ attitudes, whether they stop to help a stranger or break the speed limit when driving – all of this absorbed by children like the process of osmosis. While we often think our attitudes and behaviours come from values that we decide or feelings in our heart, they are actually an imprint on our brain that is shaped by family and patterned by experiences. This imprint becomes part of how we think, an automatic template that guides our reactions in everyday situations. …”
So proud of these students at OLD BONHOMME ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!
I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO VISITING Old Bonhomme Elementary this afternoon, talking about bully prevention, and reinforcing the importance of growing up in an atmosphere of harmony, kindness and respect of one another.
Together, we will take a stand to “Hit The Brakes On Hate“!
IT STARTED OUT as a concept… With Butterfly as my inspiration, I created a bully prevention assembly for grades 3 through 8, and offered to take it to California elementary and middle schools for 2 weeks in October of 2013, during National Anti-Bullying Month. Hundreds of requests turned 2 weeks into 2 months, all across California.
Word caught on and my tour quickly evolved into 2 years, 350 schools, and several states across our enormous, amazing country. This meant traveling to 3-5 schools per day, 4-5 days per week, personally hugging every child (my favorite part), giving wristbands and signing autographs!
Those two years visiting schools was the most challenging, and rewarding, thing I have ever done! I made many sacrifices along the way, but would do it again if I could, because of the enormous outpour of love and appreciation, messages, letters, and more that I have received (and continue to receive) from kids, parents, teachers, and schools alike.
And since my tour, I have continued to devote myself to bringing positivity and bully prevention to children everywhere.
I would love to visit every school in America, but I simply cannot. So, I formed an non-profit organization and created a fun, interactive, professionally produced video that tracks my live assembly, and am offering it to schools at NO COST. So far, by word of mouth, we have received over 1,000 requests (representing more than 600,000 children across all 50 states). We ultimately hope to reach every child in every school in America and beyond!
But NO COST to schools doesn’t mean that there are no costs to accomplish this…

Lizzie Sider to Host and Perform Live at the
Fourth Annual HATEBRAKER HERO Awards
May 2, 2016 – Hilton St. Louis Frontenac
Tickets & Info – http://hatebrakers.org/hatebraker-hero-awards-2016/
Congratulations to the 2016 HateBraker Heroes!
Kids don’t choose to grow up in a mean or belittling environment or become mean themselves. They would choose happiness, peace and harmony. But they do need our example and guidance, and relatable tools they will embrace that remind them of the importance of being kind to others.
We had a great assembly at KELLY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, and made some lasting memories! (click photo to enlarge)
And, very soon, I look forward to sharing my “Nobody Has The Power To Ruin Your Day” Bully Prevention DVD Package with schools everywhere!
