The end of bullying begins with me.
October is National Bullying Prevention month.
Family Matters, in collaboration with the Helen Matthes Library in Effingham, IL will be hosting a showing of the award winning film, “Bully”, by Lee Hirsch, on Tuesday, October 8th at 6:00 pm. at the library.
Following the film we will facilitate a discussion about how to respond to and prevent bullying in our community. The film is rated PG-13. “Bully” is a beautifully cinematic documentary following 5 kids and their families over the course of a school year and offering insight into the issues of America’s bullying crisis. With an intimate and often shocking glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals’ offices, this is a powerful and inspiring film that every educator, parent and teenager should see. To register, visit www.effinghamlibrary.org or you can call the library at 217-342-2464. Please join us!
