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!

I feel like I am getting an anxiety attack everytime someone tries to talk to me (i have not been diagnosed with social anxiety)! They don't know how bad it is. People say that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Well, suicide is the light at the end. I have attempted suicide twice but I always chicken out. I need someone to kill me. Please. As someone who has friends who were suicidal, and having been suicidal at one point in my life, It's the other way around. The people who are suicidal don't often realize how selfish taking their own life will be, because of the suffering they're experiencing. More directly to your case, though, anxiety causes control-seeking behavior. The taking of ones' own life can be seen as a way to escape the feelings which hurt us, and so we seek to control the situiation by taking ourselves out of the equation. It's like someone who falls ill when they get anxious at school.They know that falling ill will get them out of school, so someone who is anxious can actually have a physical illness as a result of wanting to escape the situation which makes them feel that way. Suicide works a lot in the same way, it's just that instead of getting out of school, we're getting out of life.  The only difference is that the person who gets out of school gets to experience that relief of the anxiety going away, the return of normal breathing as they're able to finally clam down their body and their mind. They start to feel comfortable again. Someone who commits suicide gets none of this, as they'll never again feel anything. There's no possibility of that feeling of relief, there's no longer a person.  In my view, feeling nothing at all is worse than feeling pain. At least when you can feel, you have a chance of feeling better. Life is too, well, lively...especially in such a time like this. I mean, they're making phones which could make their own power for goodness sakes!
