Almost every school-age child knows someone who has been affected by bullying. On Thursday, May 3, Kids Who Care and Stand for the Silent, an anti-bullying organization, will hold a free community event on bullying at 7 p.m. at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Adults and kids alike will learn about the real-life consequences of bullying and will get tips on how to prevent it. Stand for the Silent was founded by Kirk and Laura Smalley, who lost their son Ty to suicide after prolonged bullying. This is a great event for empowering your kids and letting them know that abusive behavior does not have to be tolerated.
Admission to the event is free, but an RSVP is requested. You can RSVP by calling 817-737-5437 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
