Did you know that October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month?
Bullying has always been a serious problem, but it’s only really come into the spotlight the last few years with the advent of social media. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram just provide another outlet for bullies to abuse their victims.
Even if you’ve never experienced it firsthand yourself, I’m sure you’ve witnessed it in some form or another. Us nerds and geeks don’t need to be picked on for being different, smart or creative. Not only is it super important for us to teach our kids why bullying is wrong, but we should teach them when to get help from an adult before it goes too far.
But it’s not just up to young people to stand up for themselves. Adults can help out too if they see bullying going on. Case in point with this this hidden camera video from UPtv. I love these types of “What would you do?” situations. It’s understandable that lots of people don’t know how to react to odd situations, but sometimes the best of humanity comes out. With these videos, we can find everyday heroes who don’t need to think twice about doing the right thing.
