What people are saying:

"Bullying: True Stories is the best DVD yet on this issue. It's a great tool to help bystanders understand that they can help stop bullying behavior. It can be used with middle and high school students. It also bridges the gap for parents and adults who wish to have these very important discussions with kids." Sarah O'Donnell R.N., Safe & Drug-Free Schools, Boston Public Schools

"The Bullying: True Stories DVD and discussion questions have been a tremendous asset in the bullying curriculum for programming at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater New Bedford. Having real life stories children can watch has made all the difference when capturing their attention in wanting to learn and help prevent bullying in their schools and communities. It has also helped them to open up and want to speak of their own experiences." Colleen Millett, Peace Works! Program Facilitator, Bristol County Sheriff's Office @ The New Bedford Boys & Girls Club

"Bullying: True Stories shares a student perspective to the many forms of bullying that is powerful and impacting. This DVD is a must see for all students regardless of whether they are a perpetrator, victim or bystander of bullying, to make a difference and move towards a bully free world." Meline Kevorkian, Ed.D., Bullying Prevention Expert, Nova Southeastern University

"Bullying: True Stories makes it evident that bullying is an issue that youth, teachers, parents, and youth workers should take seriously because it can have a devastating impact on the emotional and social well-being of young people. This DVD is timely and relevant in that it explores the many forms in which bullying can occur, including through the use of cyber bullying. I recommend Bullying: True Stories to anyone who interacts with youth, and any student who is a victim of bullying and who feels alone, or unjustified in feeling the way that they do." Carrie Rowe, Program Manager, Girls Incorporated
