57% of children feel they're being bullied at school - Cool2BeKind project

The high levels of bullying going on in schools and in communities triggered the founder of Kidz2kidz Dee Boehner to launch a project called Cool2BeKind, where they teach young children to be kind.

Cool2Bekind is a national NPO doing bullying workshops with children across the country.

57% of children feel that they are being bullied at school in some way... children are now using cellphones and that whole cyber bullying is growing immensely and teachers are not coping. They are not even trained to deal with cyber bullying or physical bullying ...

Dee Boehner, founder of Kidz2kidz

Boehner says their workshops deal with all types of bullying, but parents and teachers working together is the best way to deal with bullying in communities.

She says they've discovered that children say things during workshops that they don't necessarily tell their parents.

But it is important to talk to your children and listen to what they are telling you.

When your child comes home to you and says something, you sit up and listen because if you don't listen you not going to hear what they are trying to say and it might be something very important

Dee Boehner, founder of Kidz2kidz
