Did you know Canada.. the last Wednesday in February, which happens to be our Leap Day this year, is also an extremely important day - Pink Shirt Day.
Pink Shirt Day is about Anti-Bullying in Canada. Originally started as a protest against a bullying incident at a Nova Scotia high school, on this day everyone is asked to wear pink to symbolize a stand against bullying.
Psychologists define bullying as a power relationship carried on by one individual or a group of individuals towards another person. Bullying does not necessarily need to be brutal or physical violence, rumours, threats and hurtful words also lead to feelings of rejection.
I hope everyone talks to their children today, let them know we are here for them if they are being bullied, and let them know it is NEVER okay to bully another person - no matter what their peers are doing. Bullying Stops Here.
