"When I was in school, I was bullied. I felt bad for myself. I decided however, that I needed to love who I am and realize and appreciate my many blessings. Having experienced bullying, I can say with certainty that bullying is wrong. No one deserves to be bullied. Words can hurt and bullying can leave a lasting impact," says Herschel Walker, former NFL player, The Heisman Trophy winner and mental health advocate.
"Let’s work together to make sure our children know that they are not to blame. They deserve to be treated with respect, they deserve to feel safe. And, as adults, we will work to make any bullying stop." Learn more how parents and adults can help prevent bullying at bit.ly//ParentsandBullying. ... See MoreSee Less
