Kids: Safety, Bullying, and Internet

Dear Friends,

It is coming at us from all directions:  News, magazines, editorials, and now blogging.  The issue of bullying is inescapable and scary.

The Challenge Day program is one of the most powerful, lasting, and effective programs around when it comes to breaking down the walls of isolation and empowering kids to change the culture of the school.  To see a video gallery, click here.
I'm sure there are plenty more programs that deserve mention.  Here is a "starter list" of resources:
