Empowered Flower Girl Offers Bullying Prevention #Tips4Teens


Empowered Flower Girl (EFG), a social enterprise on a mission to transform the way young people relate to one another, encourages students to stand up for themselves and others as the school year kicks into high gear.

Detroit, MI, October 26, 2015 --(PR.com)-- From teasing and bullying to hazing and stalking, many teens across the country have experienced some form of harassment. While some actively report being bullied at school to parents or administrators, others are suffering in silence.

Empowered Flower Girl (EFG), a social enterprise on a mission to transform the way young people relate to one another, encourages students to stand up for themselves and others as the school year kicks into high gear.

Rasheda Kamaria, EFG founder and chief empowering officer, offers the following tips to help students handle conflict:

Speak up: Even if they lack confidence or feel afraid, students should speak up and out against harassment and bullying. "Let the person know that you do not approve of his or her actions," Rasheda recommends.

Get help: If the teasing, bullying or harassment persist, students are encouraged to tell a trusted adult at the school (in addition to a parent or caregiver). School counselors are a great resource and can help students get through the conflict peacefully.

Keep records: It's a good idea to keep track of any and all incidences and attempts to get help. This will come in handy during any mediation meetings.

Be the change: Often, bullies have been victims of bullying themselves at some point in their lives. "If you’re feeling down and out, find a way to express your feelings (minus the mean). Giving compliments, volunteering or doing something nice for others can make a difference," Rasheda says.
