With the issue of bullying increasing and the topic being at the forefront of academic and social institutions, more and more articles, publications and websites are cropping up. As parents we all know that the affect that bulling can have on children and young adults can be devastating. Cyber bullying is a new issue but one the schools have to deal with on a daily basis.
With the awareness increasing as to the need to stop bullying in its tracks, we will do our best to provide information as we get it. In that in mind we introduce the following websites developed in Canada by a parent and teacher who sent us this information in response to one of our bullying articles.
A Canadian teacher and parent named Bill Belsey is President of a website developed to address issues with bullying. President of Bullying.org, this organization wanted to share some educational resources that might be helpful to parents, educators and students in their efforts to better address bullying.
Regardless of where you live, bullying and its affects are the same and this website and its resources may be very helpful.
The site at www.bullying.org is a multiple award-winning web site that was developed to help people address the issues of bullying within a safe, positive, moderated international community. It is a safe, supportive, moderated, online community where people can learn that they are NOT alone in being bullied and teased, that being bullied and teased is NOT their fault and that they CAN do something positive about it.
People can contribute their personal stories, poems, images, oral stories (audio files), music and even animations and movies. All of the original submissions and the replies to them are read and moderated by real people to ensure that the Website is a safe and respectful online community.
Helpful resource information is also available which includes articles, books, legislation and policies, research and multimedia resources.
The world’s first and largest online moderated support groups for adults and youth. The site was chosen for the ChildNet International Award that goes to project that make the Internet a better place for youth, as well as being a finalist in the Stockholm Challenge Award which has been called the Nobel Prize of the IT (Information Technology) world.
CBC Television’s “The National”, CBC News anchor Peter Mansbridge referred to www.bullying.org as “One of the best Web sites in the world for young people”.
