When Words Hurt

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me...

Of course, we know that’s not true. Embracing negative self talk can derail us from even our simplest efforts when it comes to making healthy lifestyle changes. So, we can imagine (and perhaps even remember), what it’s like to experience the worst type of negative talk, insults and even bullying every single day.

In an effort to eliminate name calling from schools and communities, No Name Calling Week is celebrating its 4th year - running today through the 26th of January.

No Name Calling Week was originally created to focus national attention on the problem of name calling in schools and to provide students and teachers with the tools and inspiration to launch an on going dialogue about ways to eliminate name calling in their communities.

The program has the backing of groups from the Girl Scouts to Amnesty International. If you’re interested in creating a no name calling week in your school, you will find all the information and your complete kit, here.
