Parents and Teachers: Stop Kids From Bullying
Kudos to Larry King for hosting an hour-long show today on the topic of bullying gay children. In fact, due to the suicides of at least five teenage boys who were pushed too far by constant bullying, a host of media figures and celebrities are now speaking out against this travesty.
The real challenge is for parents, teachers, and school adminsitrators to step up and make sure that all youth - gay or otherwise - are protected. The more attention this subject gets in the media, and the more each of gets involved to speak out and stop the bullying, the better we can protect all children so that they can grow up to live the full lives they were meant to live.
Please take a moment and read this article about how public figures are working to stop the bullying that is running rampant all across the country: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/10/04/make-it-better-celebritie_n_750197.html.
