Introducing Be Kind Online - help us and be the change!

Oct 02, 2011

Hey KWers, we've got something new for you and we need YOUR help! Simply put, we need you to Be Kind Online and share that message with everyone you know! Kidzworld has launched a new program called "Be Kind Online" with a super cool new website where you, your friends, your parents, your teachers, really anyone can learn about cyber bullying. Be Kind Online provides educational information, ideas for how to stop online cruelty and how not to be mean behind the screen, what you can do to stop it and more. As you know, we have been talking about cyber bullying all summer, and in honor of October's International Anti-Bullying month, we have taken a stand and are stomping out cyber bullying.

Be sure to share it with your parents and teachers, they need help fighting cyber bullying too! But guess what? We need your help again to grow the movement. We ask a lot of you, but we do it because we KNOW you can help us and help other kids, too. You were super helpful when we asked for help naming our project so we know you care and want to help. It's thanks to you that this whole project even started. So now we want YOU to be kind online and share that message with the world! We've even picked out 5 amazing organizations all over the world who are fighting against bullying for everyone and can provide you with help and answers to any questions you might have about how you have or are being affected by bullying

Want to know how you can show your support?

  1. On Facebook? Like us! We've created a Be Kind Online Facebook page. We hope you like us...it's another way to show your social networks that you support STOPPING cyber bullying. Where better to stop cyber bullying then where it happens: online? 
  2. Are you on Twitter? We are! Follow BKO on Twitter. 
  3. On You Tube you can subscribe or add BKO as a friend on You Tube
  4. Want to SHOW your friends that you love Be Kind Online? We've created a Twibbon for Be Kind Online. A Twibbon is kind of like a badge, a little graphic that you can put onto your social network profile picture to show you support our campaign. If you have Twitter or Facebook you can add the Be Kind Online (BKO) Twibbon to your profile picture. It's an awesome picture and if you put it up, you're already being a part of the solution to bullying and sharing your support with your friends! Here is how you add it to your Twitter profile and here is how you add it to Facebook!

 

There are over 2 million KW users. Imagine how fast and far you can spread the word and help put a stop to bullying! Being kind online is easy, we're just here to make it easier. You can help us, you can BE the CHANGE!

HUGE thanks from all of us at Kidzworld!

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
