Top Slogan So Far Is:

BULLYING – What if it Were You

Remember back in the day there was a catchy phrase for people that littered.  If you littered you were called a LITTER BUG.  Kids would chant it, and point fingers at you.  It was considered un-cool, and actually helped to stop kids from littering. Sounds simple, but it worked.

That label took off all over elementary and high schools, and those two words made such an impact, that littering became un-cool and stopped trash from filling up the school yards.

Bullying is an epidemic that is so penetrating and prevalent that no one seems to have any hand in controlling it.  Not the schools, not the local authorities, not the parents, not peers.  No one has found a way to stop the mental, emotional, and physical abuse that is toxic.  It causes suicide, depression, loneliness, and pain.

But, if we come up with a trending phrase, we might just get somewhere.  Someone has to come up with a powerful phrase to make bullying what it is: Wrong, stupid, and flat out bad.  Aka un-cool. And, I’m not trying to compare bullying to littering, but, something has to change.  We have to try other angles, and kids listen to social media.

What kind of catch phrase would you use to make bullying un-cool?

Help support parents and children across the world, and come up with some catchphrase to pioneer an effort that faces heightened challenges, and unnecessary suicides.

Ask your children. They can probably come up with something better than anyone else can, and it will be, straight from the heart.

What’s your phrase?  Right off the top of your head…
