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

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
