It's tough being a kid

This weekend, we received an email from a thankful mom - it read:

HI! I wanted to share how much we love Action Wipes! These have been a huge help in my son's junior high life. As an active 13 year old he enjoys running at lunch and working out before or after school. As a teenage boy this can mean he ends up smelling very ripe afterwards. I throw a handful of Action Wipes in his back pack so he can clean up after lunch saving him from a lot of cruel teasing. I am very glad I came across these. I know they weren't designed to protect teenage boys from being picked on but they work great for it.

We too are thankful the teasing stopped. To us, teasing is just another form of bullying.

Bullying is a threat which might not seem like a major problem, but it can have a lasting effect on the kid being bullied. The statistics say that 1 out of 4 kids are bullied every month. And a whopping 160,000 students miss out on school for the fear of being bullied.

In playground every 7 minutes a child is bullied. 85% of bullying occurs in school. 82% of kids who had learning disorders have been the victim of bullying. As if bullying was not enough in school, people have started bullying in the cyberspace also.
