Across the country, today, there are children spending the day in fear. Too frightened to go to school. Too frightened to speak out. Too frightened to tell anyone. Across the country, today, children are being bullied.
As part of This Morning’s Be Kind campaign, people are being asked to watch the video contained in the link above.
The video hears from two mums whose children took their own lives as a result of the bullying they experienced. People are then asked to hit the pledge button, which can be found here. Parents are asked to pledge to watch this video with their children.
A pledge is seen as letting your children know they can ask for help, for them to know someone cares and for them to know how important it is to BE KIND.
This Morning’s Be Kind Campaign has been set up to offer key advice and an anti-bullying message following recent powerful interviews on the programme focused on bullying and the experiences faced by children and their families.
