In 2018, we launched an Anti-Bullying campaign.  Bullying is bad for all and their actions must be stopped through education, instruction, training and discipline.

Bullying is defined as “an intentional course of conduct which is reasonably likely to intimidate, emotionally abuse, slander, threaten or intimidate another person and which serves no legitimate purpose”.

I wanted the foundation (sabafamilyfoundations.com) to focus on this because I was bullied as a child.  I was silent through it all and I brought my child up to be cognizant of others and to never be mean to her peers.

I never ever dreamed that my child would get taunted and bullied.  That changed everything for me.  Now it was different.

When I approached the parents of the child who bullied my little one, they never wanted to acknowledge it.  When pushed further – the response from the mother was

“Thanks for that fascinating analysis from the ever-absent mother. Great for a laugh.

You can talk until you’re blue in the face, but no-one is listening, so please, knock yourself out!”

That made me realize this was a problem for both the bullied and the bullies.

People don’t know and don’t want to work together.

Thus, I decided we must push harder for dialogue.

Because I strongly feel parents are the root of this issue and we need to be open to helping both sides understand and acknowledge to really make a difference for the future of all our kids.

We are working together with the ministry of health and education to make a better place for our children.

Thank you for your support.
