At Franklin Family Karate, we talk a lot about bullying in every class. We have students create anti-bullying posters that we hang up at the school. Some of the
posters are “respect” posters, while other types of posters were designed to create a pledge to stop bullying. The students used magazines, markers, pencils, pens, paint, and other materials to
create the posters. We also posted the top 5 posters on the Franklin Family Karate Facebook page. Some of the students even created videos about bullying. The students did this either by
themselves, or with a group of students. It is always great to see what the students come up with, and it's a fun way to drive home how important the anti-bullying campaign is. Here is also a link
about bullying of children with Cerebral Palsy. You should never bully anyone who is different from you, it doesn't matter what disability that they have. Instead of bullying someone, find some
similarties between you both, and go from there. You will always have something in common with them. Here is the website: https://www.cerebralpalsyguidance.com/cerebral-palsy/living/bullying/
