At Kids In The House, we realize that one of the biggest concerns facing parents today is helping their children deal with bullying and the increased pressure of social media and cyberbullying. Empower Kids to #ENDBULLYING.[collapsed title=Read More]Children spend an average of 45 hours per week online, much less time than they spend with both teachers and parents combined.
"I've been asking myself: why are so many negative comments posted online every day, and how are kids affected by seeing all this negativity?" says producer and director Leana Greene. "How do you explain to your child the importance of being kind online, when it's hard to find even one YouTube video without a negative comment? Suicide is the third leading cause of death in young people, resulting in 4,400 deaths every year. We have to teach our children that words can kill, both in person and online."
Kids in the House interviewed 16 children from the Los Angeles area that have experienced bullying, as well as leading experts, to explore how to stop bullying, and to get clear advice on what to do when it happens. "We discovered that there is no simple fix to end bullying, but we hope to play a role in keeping the conversation going. We think everyone should take a close look at their words and actions online." says Greene. We hope that you will help us share the message.
