Green Giant "Raise A Giant" Bullying Prevention & $25 Gift Card Giveaway


RaGBanner
At Green Giant® we know it takes a lot more to raise a healthy child then just getting them to eat their vegetables. Kids these days live in a world that is bigger and scarier than the world we grew up in, and they need help and encouragement to navigate that world with confidence and pride.
Unfortunately one of the hardest things kids have to deal with is bullying. When a child is bullied by a peer it can turn his or her life into a daily gauntlet of fear and anxiety.
That’s why Green Giant® is partnering with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center and We Day Minnesota to help parents Raise A Giant and put a stop to bullying in their community.
What Does it Mean To Be A Giant?
Being a giant isn't about being the biggest or the best. Being a giant means standing up for others. It means lending a hand to those who are in trouble and speaking up for those who sometimes find it hard to speak up for themselves.
Studies show that an effective way to stop bullying is for kids to simply speak up and say, “That’s not okay” when they see bullying happening.
But asking kids to have the courage to stand up to bullying is a tall order and that’s why they need our help.
How Do You Raise A Giant?
We’re asking parents to write a letter to their kids telling them how special they are and encouraging them to be part of the bullying prevention solution by being a giant.
To get started parents can visit our community at RaiseAGaint.com and read the letters others have written.
With your encouragement we can help all of our kids create a safer, happier world.

I would tell them not to let words break them and that they alone determine their worth.

The person who is doing the bullying is lacking in self esteem and that the person who stands up to a bully will go far in life.

No one deserves to be bullied. Be confident and never ignore it if being bullied.

I would tell them to stand up for themselves and to report bullying to teachers and parents

Bullying is never okay. Stand your ground and speak up.

I would say that bullying is never acceptable behavior, it is okay to stand up for yourself, and keep reminding my child of all of their wonderful qualities.

I'd tell her to try to work it out with the other child first, but if that is not working, she should seek the help of a trusted adult.

They're valuable in God's eyes and that's what really matters.

I tell my kids to help stop bullying but befriending those who are bullied.

Elle-Tn said...

You know the hardest thing I have to see as a "sports" mom is the fact that so many parents try to promote their child by downgrading and stepping on top of other people kids to get theirs to the top. I'm sorry but parents need to be enthusiastic "CHEERING" spectators not vocal arses. Yes this is a form of bullying! Shame on parents!

Most people bully because they are being bullied at home and to let me and an adult at school know
