"I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do." - Helen Keller
Counselors are wrapping up their classroom lessons on the topic, Being an Upstander, this month. Students and teachers have been participating in many conversations on what it means to be an Upstander and ways that we can practice being one.
Here are a few ideas:
1. Choose not to join in when people are picking on or laughing at someone.
2. Speak out against unkind words or actions.
3. Say something helpful to the person who's being picked on or laughed at.
4. Ask people who are teasing how it would feel if they were the ones being teased.
5. Ask the person who's being left out or picked on to join you in an activity.
6. Let an adult know what's going on.
What other ideas can you come up with as a family?
