February 24 is pink shirt day
Today is Pink Shirt Day. This is a Canadian anti-bullying movement that grew out of a bullying incident against a young male student wearing a pink shirt.
Check out this recent article on bullying “Bullying can escalate into something worse” by Dr David Wolf in the Feb 22, 2016 issue of the Toronto Star (page E5) in which the author states that bullying is not a bully problem but a relationship problem “it’s a method of trying to control a relationship, to move oneself up the ladder by pushing someone else down” . And he argues that learning about healthy relationships should be a central part of the education system”. For additional information and resources check out PREVnet, Bullying.org and The Foruth R.
