This flexible video can be used by both parents and students.
In Stick and Stones, you’ll witness true stories from teens who were bullied with name-calling, gossip, nasty emails and exclusion. This is the torment that today’s bullies put others through, and kids say it hurts worse and leaves deeper emotional scars than physical bullying. You’ll witness the true story of Ryan, who committed suicide as a desperate escape from daily teasing and taunting – both at school and online through hateful emails. You’ll also hear from Alison: “I’d be walking down the hallway and it would be like, ‘Alison, you can take your mask off, it’s not halloween anymore.’ Or, ‘Alison, you’re so ugly, no guy would ever kiss you.’” They called her names and made sexual slurs, and she cried everyday after school. Learn what children and teens face everyday, and what parents, students, and educators are doing to stop the abusive words that hurt worse than “sticks and stones.” Video contains five segments.
