Do you have a story to tell about bullying? Whether it is your child’s, your own or the story of being a parent to a bullied child I would like to share your experiences on here. They can be added as an anonymous guest post or have your name and blog/twitter added.
Beatbullying is a charity that aims to help young people struggling with bullying. Among other projects they provide training to groups ranging from 5 – 25 years old giving them the opportunity to support each other through peer to peer mentoring. Professional counsellors are also available for any cases that become serious.
I would really like to spread the word about this charity across Scotland and to help fundraise to bring training here. To begin with I’ll be looking for people aged between 18 and 25 to train with me to become Senior CyberMentors and then I will introduce the Mini Mentors program to my daughter’s primary school when she starts after the summer (eeeeeeeeeeeekkk) as I would really like to be involved with the school and make sure that bullying is being dealt with.
If you are in Scotland and are aged between 18 – 25 and would like to get involved I would love to hear from you. For more info about the Senior Cybermentor role click here.
If you would like to find out more about bringing the MiniMentor program to your child’s primary school click here.

If your child would like to talk to someone about being bullied pass this website on to them http://cybermentors.org.uk/ and they will be able to register and speak with one of the trained CyberMentors.
Help spread the word about this great charity and help us beat bullying!
