Hey folks - as a member of the DawgNation community, please remember to abide by simple rules of civil engagement with other members:

- Please no inappropriate usernames (remember that there may be youngsters in the room)

- Personal attacks on other community members are unacceptable, practice the good manners your mama taught you when engaging with fellow Dawg fans

- Use common sense and respect personal differences in the community: sexual and other inappropriate language or imagery, political rants and belittling the opinions of others will get your posts deleted and result in warnings and/ or banning from the forum

- 3/17/19 UPDATE -- We've updated the permissions for our "Football" and "Commit to the G" recruiting message boards. We aim to be the best free board out there and that has not changed. We do now ask that all of you good people register as a member of our forum in order to see the sugar that is falling from our skies, so to speak.

r brings together students, faculty, and parents to end bullying. This annual designation brings awareness to the need to stand up against and put an end to bullying. No child should be afraid to ride a bus or go to school because a classmate threatens them. Children who have been bullied should feel they can report the incident without repercussions. 

Types of Bullying

Bullying comes in many forms. It occurs repeatedly and is a way for the perpetrator to show their power. Whether the bullying is verbal, physical, relational, or cyberbullying, the results are detrimental.

  • Verbal bullying involves spoken words. The person may threaten or call names. They may use disrespectful language toward family, friends, or specifically aimed at their target.
  • Physical bullying is aggression in the form of hitting, kicking, pushing, or any unwanted touch.
  • Relational bullying involves purposely excluding someone from activities, groups, or events through social tactics.
  • Cyberbullying includes using social media, texts, and the internet to spread rumors, lies, or mean messages about a person.

Each type of bullying may have similar effects on the targeted person. They may withdraw even from their family or become mysteriously ill often. It’s essential to keep an open line of communication with children and students. Encourage students to participate in activities outside the home. Teach children the appropriate use of the internet, social media, and text. Have daily discussions with family members about their day. Set boundaries for behavior and provide a role model for how you expect them to behave and treat others.

On a lighter note, it's also National Moldy Cheese Day. Any cheese mongers out there in Dawg Nation?
