Building Friendships: Be a Buddy - Not a Bully
Teaching tolerance in elementary schools is an essential priority. If we begin with very young children who are instinctively more sensitive than adults, who are not reluctant to express their true feelings, then we will be far more successful in our efforts to fight racism and discrimination.
Be a Buddy - Not a Bully, developed in 2005, is an independent anti-bullying program. It is preventative, demonstrates respect for individuals and encourages inclusiveness. This literature-based program for kindergarteners and first-graders is woven into the existing curriculum and flexible in its duration.
