If you were ever bullied; in retrospect, what could you of done or what could of done to make things better?
What didn't help? What made the bullying worse?
Have you ever had a peer stand up for you and if so how did it help or not help?
My sons approach for this speech is to address the harsh reality of bullying from the perspective that the suggested methods to cope with bullying often make it worse and the things that would help are where so many fall silent.
What he thinks would help a lot is if peers stood up for each other more, that kids can empower each other by celebrating difference and using their voice when they see someone being picked on.
I appreciate all comments.
