**CLOSED! Winner posted here**
I'm always worried that my kids will be bullied. There are a lot of mean children in the world who think it's okay to be cruel towards others. Since my son has Aspergers, I especially worry about him.
There's a new movie called Standing Up that is about bullying. Here is what is about from the e-mail I was sent:
Based on one of the most beloved Young Adult novels of all time and directed by the acclaimed D.J. Caruso, Standing Up follows two kids who get bullied by a vicious summer camp prank. Left together on an island, their adventure begins once they decide not to be victims and instead they Stand Up!
Standing Up is an adorable and heart-warming gem of a movie with an important anti-bullying message that’s suitable for the whole family! Get the DVD August 20!
What can be done to help the bullied “stand up” for themselves?
One of the best things we can do to understand the problem and discuss solutions is to be inspired. The movie “Standing Up” is THAT inspiration.
This definitely sounds like something that my kids and I need to watch.
Check out the widget to learn more about the movie. You can also take a quiz and find out if you stand up to bullies. You can also have your children take the Anti-Bullying pledge. (Some adults I've encountered should probably do it too..)
A lucky reader can win a DVD of Standing Up that is signed by the director D.J. Caruso!
