  • Kids are supposed to go to school to learn about reading, writing and arithmetic. Unfortunately, school children also learn about bullies. A bully can make each day a traumatic experience for a child. So if your child is dealing with a bully, you can help him by keeping the lines of communication open.Encourage your child to talk to you or his teachers about the issues he is facing with a bully.If you help your child prepare for encounters with a bully, then he'll be better able to handle these uncomfortable situations.As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who still find it quite hard to manage issues like this, I found this great application which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button. #SafekidZone, Check it here: http://bit.ly/ZjYchC

  47. 52. Bullies and Me By Lauren Avery
  48. 53. The start <ul><li>I was born on the 27 th of April 1996 with a condition called Turner’s Syndrome. </li></ul><ul><li>TS isn’t life threatening. It’s to do with something called Chromosomes, and means I’m smaller than other girls, I can’t have children, and struggle with co-ordination. </li></ul>
  49. 54. A few years pass… <ul><li>When I was three, it would become more obvious that I had TS. By this time, girls with the condition start to be smaller than other girls, and later with their milestones. </li></ul>
  50. 55. The bullying begins. <ul><li>When I was seven, it must have become even more obvious I was different. </li></ul><ul><li>I was bullied by a couple of boys who weren’t much taller than me for being a ‘shrimp’. </li></ul><ul><li>My family and I were still unaware that I had TS. They thought I was ‘just little’. </li></ul>
  51. 56. The bullying gets too much. <ul><li>The bullying became so bad that, in Year Five, I moved schools. </li></ul><ul><li>I received some bullying at my new school, but it wasn’t as bad, and I was generally happier, as the teachers did more about it. </li></ul>
  52. 57. Secondary school. <ul><li>When I began Year Seven, bullying continued. I was known as ‘midget’, ‘dwarf’, and ‘oompa loompa’. </li></ul><ul><li>It was in my second year I was to discover, along with my family, that I had Turners’ Syndrome. </li></ul>
  53. 58. The discovery. <ul><li>I went to a minor injury and accidents unit, as I was having breathing troubles. </li></ul><ul><li>After checking my chest, I was given the all clear, but my dad and I were told I was a ‘bit too small’ for my age. </li></ul><ul><li>The doctor emailed my local doctors’ surgery, and, after having my blood tested, it was confirmed not long before Christmas 2008 that I had Turners’ Syndrome. </li></ul>
  54. 59. The injections. <ul><li>After my discovery, I was able to give a reason for my ‘shortness’ when people teased me about it. </li></ul><ul><li>I did a presentation in late Year Eight, and around mid-Year Nine, I made a video. Both were about my condition, and how it affected me, so similar to the presentation you are watching now. </li></ul><ul><li>I began daily growth hormone injections not long before my 13 th birthday, and without them, I would be even smaller than I am now. </li></ul>
  55. 60. Friendship club <ul><li>In Year Seven, I attended an after school club called Friendship Club. This gave me a chance to make new friends who would look out for me and make sure I was okay. </li></ul><ul><li>At Friendship Club, we did things like art, crafts, puzzles, games, playing on the Wii, watching films, and generally having fun. </li></ul><ul><li>This built my skills and improved my confidence as a person. </li></ul>
  56. 61. The bullying stops. <ul><li>When people understood my condition, they were less likely to be mean about me, or call me names. </li></ul><ul><li>There will always be a few people who don’t understand, but they aren’t worth worrying about. </li></ul>
  57. 62. How does bullying effect your life? <ul><li>It doesn’t matter whether you’re a bully, or bullied, or a bystander. Bullying must stop, so tell someone. </li></ul><ul><li>You can either let what’s going on continue, or do something to stop it. That choice is yours, so please make the wise one. </li></ul>
  58. 63. Thank you for listening, are there any questions?
  59. 64. Reflection and quiz prizes! <ul><li>Please spend a few minutes completing your evaluation form for the day. </li></ul><ul><li>Thank you </li></ul>
