BULLYING: Words Could Kill

[ 0 ] September 16, 2011 |

This evening at 8:00 p.m. the “48 Hours” news program on CBS will highlight the outstanding anti-bullying program that has been developed by fellow Rhode Islander and local Mom, Elizabeth Branca Vachon, at the Birchwood Middle School in North Providence. Elizabeth is a leading expert on anti-bullying programs and is working with school systems nationwide to implement strong and meaningful anti-bulling campaigns.  All parents understand and appreciate the implications of bullying.  It is hardly an understatement to say that bullying can literally destroy lives, particularly given the new venues available for bullying, such as Facebook, You Tube and Twitter.  Fortunately, one local school has taken this issue to heart and has adopted a successful zero-tolerance campaign that is worth emulating. This is an IMPORTANT issue for our children. Please tune in!
