Make Room For The Stuttering

More on Bullying

Posted on: June 23, 2009

This will be short and sweet today. This video speaks for itself.

I have been asked to co-facilitate a 6-hour professional development training on Bullying for teachers and other school staff. We will be doing it in three parts, focusing on bullying in schools and the effects on children, bullying in the workplace and its effects on adults, and how to stand up for yourself and keep from being bullied. We will offer it at the start of the new school year. Of course, I am honored to have been asked to co-present this. I will share my stuttering story as a personal example of how “names” can hurt more than “sticks and stones.”

We have begun to pull together some resources and I came across this video. We will share this with folks. It is really powerful. We all know that kids who stutter, and adults, get teased and bullied. This short video clip drives home what can happen if we ignore bullying. We can’t ignore it.

Please, lets do our part. Let’s be sure to educate everyone about stuttering, teasing and bullying. Enough is enough. Stand Up To Bullies.     We Can Make A Difference.

Pam-
This is so important!! It is so great that you are doing this. I am going into more schools next year so I look forward to any information you can provide. tks Lori

This is very necessary Pam all the best.

This is so timely as I was watching television the other day and heard about a yourg boy who had committed suicide because of bullying.

My heart went out to his family and my mind went back to those times when I was riduculed and teased becaue of my stuttering.

It is really a sad, dark and lonely place to be.

People like you are the real heroes and need to be recognised.

Thanks again.
