Hi It’s Brigitte
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  Hi Dorie Witt! πŸ™‚
 PeggyG -> 
and now I know how to spell your name πŸ™‚
 mattjmd -> 
this is very timely for me as our teachers talked to us about bullying
just this morning!
 PeggyG -> 
I’m really interested to hear if the same bullying advice works
anywhere in the world πŸ™‚
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Oh matt That’s great!
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  What kinds of questions do your teachers want to know
 mattjmd -> 
they wanted to know what we would do if someone we dont know well was
bullied
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Welcome McMackin
 mattjmd -> 
being in a small school this was hard to imagine
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  WElcome Connie
 mattjmd -> 
but they were wondering if we would talk to them, a teacher, or the
bully
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  @Matt yes that’s a great question
 Connie Sitterley ->  Hey eveyone
 PeggyG -> 
http://twitter.com/#!/DorieWitt

 Sheila -> 
Hi all!
 PeggyG -> 
Hi Sheila
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Hi Sheila
 Trisha -> 
Super TY! πŸ™‚
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Great point about MODELING
 PeggyG -> 
Great Trisha!
 PeggyG -> 
Have you seen Kevin Honeycutt’s new children’s book called “Don’t
Stay Under the Couch-Starbuck and the Bully” It’s fantastic!
 PeggyG -> 
http://web.me.com/khoneycuttessdack/kevinhoneycutt.org/Starbuck_Book.html
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Haven’t seen it but I can imagine it’s great. Link?
 PeggyG -> 
it has a companion curriculum guide too πŸ™‚
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  You’re fast!
 Connie Sitterley ->  Kevin’s work is always great
 PeggyG ->  I
bought the book and the pictures of his dog Starbuck are wonderful and really
help to tell the story
 PeggyG ->  I
agree Bob!! nothing like hearing it from a peer!
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  πŸ™‚
 Connie Sitterley ->  My past district participated in the Olweus program which
is a quite structured program for k-12 
http://www.clemson.edu/olweus/
 PeggyG -> 
do you like it Connie?
 Connie Sitterley ->  The Olweus works to develop peer support
 PeggyG -> 
that was great advice from her mom
 Trisha -> 
Sounds like you took ownership over the situation…powerful!
 Connie Sitterley ->  I believe that it has been quite effective-they rolled it
out a couple schools at a time and were just going into the second set when I
retired
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  @Connie: :ools like a good resource
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Looks
 PeggyG -> 
http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=55178028049&topic=8554 Her
facebook page for the survey “Have you ever felt this way?”
 Connie Sitterley ->  Great example of a supportive family-more kids need that
support
 PeggyG -> 
it sounds great Connie!
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  Thx Connie! Clemson is near where I live too and wonder
what other resources they have.
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Yea Cheryl’s here!
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  hello, just back from parent conferences
 PeggyG -> 
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Brigitte-Berman/55178028049?v=wall
Brigitte’s Facebook page. I’m a new fan!!
 PeggyG -> 
Hi Cheryl! great to see you!
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  @Peggy me too!
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  Hi Peggy, good to be here.
 PeggyG -> 
http://www.totallynotably.com/Brigitte_Bermans_Blog/Brigitte_the_Bully_Busters_Blog/Brigitte_the_Bully_Busters_Blog.html
 PeggyG -> 
that’s a very long link to her blog “What’s Totally Notable
Today?”
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  There is no way we should accept, bullying as a right of
passage.
 mattjmd -> 
I have to go, great talk guys! love your work!
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  We should stop that at all corners.
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Bye matt
 PeggyG ->  I
agree Cheryl!
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  I wonder how many teachers let it go
 PeggyG -> 
who wouldn’t want Brigitte supporting you?!
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  A good survey question, Alice.
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  I grew up being bullied so I can really feel for those
kids who are bullied.
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  Brigitte it is a huge issue for a school, not just a
teacher/classroom issue.
 PeggyG -> 
Kevin asks a great question in his book: Can Starbuck learn when he’s
scared?
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  Alice, right, it is a culture of the building.
 PeggyG -> 
being scared can totally interfere with your learning at
school–that’s why it needs to be stopped and not ignored
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Culture and trust SO important
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  i was actually bullied by a teacher as well as other kids
 PeggyG -> 
good point loonyhiker!
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  “As an adult, the best thing to do is be open and
ready to listen.”
 Trisha -> 
Yes…culture is Key
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  negative talk has become acceptable and standard rather
than the opposite
 PeggyG -> 
that is such a good point–kids tend to think of it as
“normal” but it’s not!
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  Yes, Pat, it is acceptable in many places, not welcomed
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  @Pat good point…. so much negativity
 Trisha ->  I
sometimes feel the lines can sometimes be Blurred between a Conflict (big or
small) and Bullying…some days it may seem like an issue and the next day it
may not. Any tips to identify?
 PeggyG -> 
such a good perspective!
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  by bringing this out in the open, we can begin to empower
the kids who want to speak up
 Connie Sitterley ->  One good thing that came with the Olweus at our schools
was that there were development of that culture and understanding of what
bullying looks like and sounds like-in terms appropriate for the age groups
 PeggyG -> 
that sounds like a very comprehensive program Connie! Was it
expensive?
 Trisha -> 
@Connie..yes *appropriate for age groups* is important…
 Trisha -> 
as parent we hear a lot about it too @MS level…
 Trisha -> 
YES!
 Connie Sitterley ->  I know that there was a grant involved but I wasn’t
involved with that part
 PeggyG ->  I
heard it a lot in my elementary school–even very young kids bully because
they see/hear it at home. They all need to be educated.
 PeggyG -> 
that word “acccident” comes up a lot! πŸ™‚
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  Yes, Peggy, or I didn’t mean it, it was a joke.
 PeggyG -> 
exactly
 PeggyG -> 
they think they can’t be held responsible if it was an accident and
they said “sorry”
 Trisha -> 
Same Group too it seems?
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  WE have ocnditioned them to say sorry, but they don’t know
what it really means
 PeggyG -> 
right! really doesn’t mean anything
 Trisha -> 
Excellent Thanks so much πŸ™‚ Looking for those patterns…and
restructuring.
 PeggyG ->  I
love the videos I have seen created by students using the music from Peter,
Paul and Mary for “Don’t Laugh at Me”-powerful message
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  @Peggy I haven’t seen those
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  i haven’t seen them either
 PeggyG -> 
I’ve seen several. There is an entire curriculum guide that goes with
it too.
 PeggyG -> 
http://www.dontlaugh.org/curricula/index.php
 PeggyG -> 
all free materials
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  thanks Peggy
 PeggyG -> 
that was an amazing story Brigitte!!
 PeggyG -> 
you are so articulate and passionate about bully prevention!!
 Trisha -> 
Yes…inspiring!
 cheryloakes~seedlings -> 
http://www.pewinternet.org/Search.aspx?q=cyberbullying   Latest research from Pew Internet
 PeggyG ->  I
agree Cheryl!
 Trisha -> 
Thanks for Dropping those Links In!
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  sure, I love Pew Internet research.
 PeggyG -> 
great ideas!
 PeggyG -> 
sometimes you can have the older kids prepare stories or puppet plays
for younger kids so they get the message as they share it with them
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  I still feel the effects and I’m over 50
 PeggyG -> 
yes it stays with you forever!
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  when I approach a group of my peers/professionals, my
heart beats fast and I want to run (fight or flight response!)
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Yes scars forever.
 PeggyG -> 
her point about self-confidence is so important
 Connie Sitterley ->  there is an internet safety program  http://isafe.org/ that deals with
internet bullying-they use older students as mentors and have a program
specifically to assist with that
 PeggyG -> 
so true–you don’t have to have all the answers but you just have to
let them know you’re willing to listen
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  Pat, I am so glad you have worked through this, you are a
powerful force in the cybersphere! I am so glad you believed in yourself?
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  thanks cheryl but it doesn’t come naturally – i really
have to push myself but thx for the kind words!
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  i felt the same way which is what steered me towards
special ed
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  Yes, I m all for the underdog, Pat.
 PeggyG -> 
you have so much to share loonyhiker! I’m so glad you persevered! I
would never have guessed that about you.
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  i was the only Chinese in elem. and jr. high so was
bullied because i was different
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  Me too loony hiker. You have so much to share!
 PeggyG -> 
wish Sheila was still here to hear this about NASA!
 AliceBarr (SEEDlings) ->  This is so exciting!
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  Peggy, she will hear the podcast, you know Shelia πŸ™‚
 PeggyG -> 
of course!!
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  i love hearing the enthusiasm in Brigit’s voice!
 PeggyG -> 
me too! that kind of excitement about learning definitely builds self
confidence!
 loonyhiker (aka Pat) ->  She is such a great speaker – I bet she could sell ice
cream to eskimos!
 PeggyG -> 
I’ll bet she could too!
 Connie Sitterley ->  What a great show-I need to share the podcast link with
some of the teachers I work with
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  Sure thing Connie! We have a bunch of them, over 100.
 PeggyG -> 
she should definitely host her own show!
 Connie Sitterley ->  I know-I have been listening since Bob started!
 cheryloakes~seedlings ->  πŸ™‚
 PeggyG ->
