Women of the Moose
Women of the Moose sponsored a service on bullying at Austin Moose Lodge.
Speakers were Danielle Nesvold, chairman of Community Against Bullying, and Dewey Schara, principal of Neveln Elementary School. They talked about how the school system is dealing with this and how to help families and victims.
Some tips included teaching children to talk to you if there is a problem and how to help them be confident, stand up for themselves and look where bullying is coming from. They may have a personal problem of their own and are taking their own anger out on someone else. There are some upcoming events in October. Look for posters on CAB. See how you can handle this if it happened to your children or grandchildren.
At the end of the program, a check was presented by WOTM to help further CAB’s cause.
