Last month No Bully was invited to Paris by UNESCO to join Ministers of education from across the world with leaders of other civil society organizations. We were convened to address education sector responses to violence based on sexual orientation and gender expression/ identity.

The next time a kid tells you that they don’t like their school, it is worth asking yourself whether you would like it either. Schools have personalities, which explains why students use adjectives to describe them that usually are applied to people e.g. fun, full of drama, boring, stressful, or mean.

Last week I was asked by a major news outlet to go on camera and tell viewers what they should do if they are bullied by Donald Trump. It was one of those wrapped up questions, similar in structure to "When will you stop beating your children?" I thought it wisest to decline the invitation.

I work in an elementary school in Oakland, California. Our kids are in kindergarten through fifth grade. Cyberspace is now a big part of their lives. They are always texting each other. In a good and bad way. Many of them have accounts on Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter. They even ask me to friend them on Facebook (which I decline).
I’m a Solution Coach in the Oakland Unified School District. Recently Emilio was referred to me. Emilio is ten years old and did not want to come to school any more because the other kids in the fifth grade were picking on him. I had noticed Emilio, always alone in recess. He is an unusual kid but things now had gotten way more intense than him just self-isolating.
We are excited to announce the launch of No Bully Portugal! Over thirty percent of children in Portugal are bullied . No Bully Portugal has been licensed to deliver the No Bully program to schools in Portugal. Our goal is to catalyze action to ensure that no child in Portugal has to suffer bullying and to train public and private schools in the award winning No Bully System® to end it.
I started at my high school at Peru when I was thirteen. I was a quiet girl without much confidence and most of the time I kept to myself. It was my bad luck to have a boy in my class called Dennis. Dennis had a lot of issues at home. His mother was a single mother trying to make ends meet. It made it his mission to make my days as challenging as possible.
