Why Her Message is So Important:
Bullying is becoming a wide spread epidemic in our schools, youth sports organizations and other areas in the community where children gather together. These environments often pave the way for children to spend time together without the direct supervision of adults. It is in these unsupervised moments when a majority of the bullying takes place. As a parent, grandparent, family member, teacher or other individual who values the safety and security of a child or children, you need to be aware of the damage that is done.
- 70.6% of young people have seen incidents of bullying in their school.
- 49% of students in 4th to 12th grade have endured bullying at the hands of another student at least once.
- The most common types of bullying that children experience are verbal and social. Cyberbullying uses the internet and cell phone features to make these instances worse.

You may feel confident that your child or children will share being a victim or watching someone else face a bully. However, statistics show that only 20% to 30% of students that endure bullying will tell an adult.
For that reason, it is essential that we teach young children that it’s okay to speak up and it’s always ok to be yourself. Frankenpumpess does just that! It will give your child positive reinforcement to stay strong in the face of bullying. More importantly, it will show your child that fighting back by being a bully is never the answer. Instead, your child will learn to show kindness, even when someone else is choosing otherwise.
