I’m on a mission to help grow the happiest, kindest, most confident kids.
A few days ago I received an email from a concerned mom. She writes:
“Our daughter is in 7th grade at a JR High. She has recently been a victim of the light end of some bullying. But the worst part is what she comes home and tells us about. The latest, she says girls are taking pics of overweight girls eating their lunches and posting “fat girl pics” on their Instagram pages. How horrifying. So sad. They need to be stopped, but it’s a small town and all in ‘who you know.'”
I’m also horrified by this new trend – and eager to create a range of new posters to combat against these “mean girls.”
So up above is my first poster – which says:
“Yo girls! Calling someone fat doesn’t make you any prettier. Actually, it kinda makes you an ugly person.”
Yes, it’s a strong message.
But I think we need strong messages to get through to these “mean girls”!
Here’s another poster – which inspires kindness in a softer way.
