Bully – Motion Picture

Directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, The Bully Project is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary. At its heart are those with huge stakes in this issue whose stories each represent a different facet of Americas bullying crisis. The Bully Project follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals offices, the film offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children. As teachers, administrators, kids and parents struggle to find answers, The Bully Project examines the dire consequences of bullying through the testimony of strong and courageous youth. Through the power of their stories, the film aims to be a catalyst for change in the way we deal with bullying as parents, teachers, children and society as a whole.

New anti-bullying trend: Teaching victims to fight back

This article by Kristin Kalning was published on MSNBC.com last week concerning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and how BJJ helps children fight off big bullies. Society has typically dealt with bullying via establishing zero tolerance policies or applying other behavior consequences toward bullying offenders. A new approach that is gaining momentum is to target the victims, not the bullies, by teaching victims how to stand up and fight back against the bully.

Kalning writes, If you found out that bullies were hassling your kid, what would you do? Help him rehearse comeback lines? Or show him how to open a can of whoop-ass, and knock those jerks into next week?
