October is “National Prevent Bullying Month” and tomorrow is being billed as “Unite Against Bullying” day.

To raise awareness, many people will be wearing orange to support the “Make it Orange and Make it End” movement.

Bullying can be emotional as well as physical.

Kids who are bullied may suffer from anxiety and depression. So parents look for the signs. It’s important parents empower their children with the confidence to speak up if they, or someone they know, is being bullied.

National Bullying Prevention Month is recognized in communities across the United States. Hundreds of schools and organizations are expected to take part.
