What can be done to help the bullied “stand up” for themselves?
One of the best things we can do to understand the problem and discuss solutions is to be inspired. The movie “Standing Up” is THAT inspiration.
I love the idea for the movie, and I can't wait to watch it with my kids. Bullying has become too much of a problem amongst children, and I want to make sure my kids will not be a victim of it.
