Rosalind Wiseman - Creating Cultures of Dignity
Dear Friends,
For more than a year, it has been a great privilege for me to work closely with the producers at Anderson Cooper 360 to put together a variety of programs that draw attention to the myriad of bullying-related issues that exist in our country. Beginning with AC360's first bullying special in the fall of 2010 following the Tyler Clementi suicide, Anderson and his producers have never ceased to impress me with their dedication to this topic, and their willingness to examine and discuss it in a way that inspires real conversation and action. This year we have put together what I believe is another truly fantastic special that aired Sunday night on CNN for the first time, and will air again later this week. Please check your local listings for AC360's Bullying: It Stops Here, onFriday, October 14. Additionally, the entire week of October 10-15, AC360 will air a special series on bullying at 8 and 10pm each night. You can learn more about all of Anderson Cooper's anti-bullying programming by clicking here.
One very important element in this year's anti-bullying special is the results of a survey commissioned by CNN and conducted by Dr. Robert Faris and Dr. Diane Femlee at UC Davis, which reveals compelling new data about bullying. I weighed in on the details of this survey and what parents can take away from it on this article I wrote for Dr. Faris and Dr. Femlee argue that "social combat"--the use of aggression to climb the social hierarchy--is responsible for the majority of bullying that occurs among kids today.
If you play any role in the life of a child, I hope you will share the information about the Bullying: It Stops Here special, AC360's commitment to this issue, and the Stop Bullying, Speak Up campaign that is being conducted jointly by Cartoon Network and the companies of Turner Broadcasting. Please take a few moments to sign the Facebook pledge, and to remember that keeping kids safe happens in small moments every day.
I'd love to know what you thought of the special, and how you and your family are stopping bullying and speaking up in your own lives. As always, you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, and email.
Thank you for your support!
