Schools should be more proactive in addressing bullying

Ms. Daniels’ letter to the editor (published Dec. 22, titled “A gift like no other: Our daughter has returned”) was both frightening and heart warming. I am so very glad that Julia is once again enjoying her childhood and school.

And I am appalled that she was the victim of vicious bullying for so long. And I am confused as to why schools do not take a more active role in addressing this very serious problem. Julia is fortunate to have such a loving and courageous family.

  1. Bullying is a serious problem affecting millions of children. It can interfere with their social and emotional development, as well as their school performance. 19,000 children attempt to commit suicide every year as a direct result of being bullied. To help combat this, I have put together a bully prevention show for elementary schools & libraries called "The STOP Bullying Show". Based out of Orlando, Florida, the show raises the awareness of bullying in a fun & engaging way; while teaching kids what they can do to put a stop to it. Highlights of the show can be seen here…
