Kindness is a Superpower!

Today in many countries including here in Canada it is Pink Day, otherwise known as Anti-Bullying Day!  People around the country are wearing pink today to take a stance against bullying.

As someone who was bullied quite a bit as a child, today is very special to me. While the wounds caused by bullying may heal, the scars never go away.  That’s why it’s so important that we stand up against bullies and let them know it won’t be tolerated.  Just as important we need to educate kids about the harmful effects of bullying and also empower them to speak up if they are being bullied.

It’s also really important to me that I raise good kids who are kind and inclusive and that we always lift each other up.  We not only stand up for ourselves but for everyone!  I love these pink t-shirts we got for Anti-bullying Day from 4amazingkidsapparel.  They are perfect!

If you would like more information on Pink Day I encourage you to check out their site.  It’s a really touching story on how it all started!  Also if your child is being bullied there are a lot of resources available that can help both parents and kids.  One article that I found to be helpful is Helping Kids Deal with Bullies.

Remember people, kindness is our greatest superpower!  Be Kind, wear pink and say no to bullying!!  Not just today, but always!
