Stop Bullying: Rugby Jones

stop bullyingStop Bullying with Rugby Jones is a video that Grace and Leia created. They are on a mission to help their friend Rugby Jones stop bullying. Grace and Leia made this video and used puppets to help children understand how unkind words can hurt and may cause someone who is bullied to bully others. Stop bullying and standing up for bullied kids is a message that should be shared with all kids of all ages.

Kids are never too young to be taught that empathy and kindness make everyone feel better about themselves and make the world a better place. Rugby Jones gets it and Grace and Leia get it. How about the kids you know? Do they get it?

Moving Away

moving awayDo you know how hard it is on kids when they are moving away and changing schools? Well, I can tell you that it’s really hard. There are a lot of reasons and adults need to understand what they have to go through so that they can help to make it easier for them.

Don’t ever lie to your kids about moving away but that doesn’t mean that you should tell them things that are not meant for children to know. Remember that adults should deal with adult things and children should only need to deal with children’s things.

Don’t make promises about moving away that you can’t keep. That may help in the beginning but it won’t help later on. In fact it will usually make things worse because the kids will be disappointed plus they won’t believe things that you tell them in the future.

The most important thing to remember is that kids need to feel safe, secure and loved. Moving away to a bigger or better house really doesn’t matter to kids. They are afraid of changing schools and friends and being uprooted from all that they have known.

Moving Away

Take the kids to visit the new school they will be attending. It would be very helpful if they could meet some of the kids and that way they will know kids when school starts. That will make them feel a little more secure.

It will also help if the kids can see the new house or apartment before they move. It will also help if they know they can take their toys and pets with them.

Pets really help kids to feel happier if they move away or when life changes. Even though I think the best pets are dogs, having dogs isn’t always possible. Another good pet is a cat. Sometimes kids like gerbils and guinea pigs. If none of these are possible, fish can also be good pets.
