#KindVibes Headquarters is a place to become educated and empowered to spread kindness and prevent bullying. We created #KindVibes for October, which is National Bullying Prevention Month, but the truth is, we should be spreading #KindVibes all year long. The hashtag is all about reminding the world around you that sending #KindVibes is the first step in stopping and preventing bullying.
Consider this page your go-to resource for helping children and teens feel safe from bullying, and for teaching them how to prevent and respond to bullying and spread kindness instead.
Use this page as a resource for helping your children feel safe from bullying. Teach them that bullying is never OK – and that there are healthy, effective ways to respond to these behaviors. Learn the signs if your child is being bullied or is the bully and how to respond. And teach your child about spreading kindness using #KindVibes.
Below you will find checklists for spotting the signs that your child is a target of bullying– plus ideas for how to address the topic in a way that will help your children open up about the difficult topic of bullying.
