National Bullying Prevention Month 2022

National Bullying Prevention Month 2022

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Did you know that National Bullying Prevention Month first originated in 2006 and was only a week long, it was not until 2010 that it became a full month of awareness. National Bullying Prevention Month was created by PACER – check out their website here for more history on this important month, ways to support this month, and student activity kits. Sadly bullying continues to happen in schools, on social media, and in work places across america. 

With the increase of social media use and the use of technology in schools students, there has been an increase of cyberbullying. Many of our students face cyberbullying through social media accounts, video games, text messages, and even emails. The article What is Cyberbullying by StopBullying.gov describes what cyberbullying looks like, how parents can be more digitally aware, how teachers and educators can help prevent cyberbullying, and so much more.
